EA Delists Latest FIFA Games From Prominent Digital Stores

EA Sports FC no longer supports the FIFA name.

Story Highlights

  • EA seems to have delisted FIFA titles from 14 to 23 from its digital storefronts right before the global release of EA Sports FC 2024.
  • It seems only natural as EA’s annual football game is now called EA Sports FC, discarding the previous FIFA name from its title.
  • Although all these titles have been removed from the stores, FIFA 22 & 23 can still be played via EA Play.
  • Upon a closer inspection of SteamDB, it seems like this occurred right before the latest entry was released in early access.

EA has delisted many of its annual football games under the FIFA banner from major digital storefronts, like Steam, Microsoft Store, Nintendo eShop, Epic Games, and PlayStation Store. This occurred around the same time EA Sports FC 24 was released in early access. Despite all games being unavailable to purchase, players can still enjoy FIFA 22 & 23 on EA Play.

Fans must already be aware that EA no longer has the right to use the name “FIFA” for its future titles. FIFA 23 was the last game under that banner, and now, with the release of its continuation under EA Sports FC, EA seems to have removed all prior entries from major digital storefronts. A quick search across various stores will reveal that FIFA 14 & 23 have been removed from these stores.

Fans are still awaiting a formal announcement regarding this recent change from EA. The only official word we have on this comes from a Steam page, which reads, “At the request of the publisher, EA SPORTS™ FIFA 23 is unlisted on the Steam store and will not appear in search.” Moreover, SteamDB reveals that this happened on September 21, 2023, around the time EA Sports FC 24 was released in early access.
