Info about FIFA 22

While EA should unveil the new features of FIFA 22 at its conference on July 22, the first images of the Beta of the football game have started to leak, to the point that this first Beta phase has been canceled by EA. Therefore, we have very little information about the game at the moment.

Also, the Beta doesn't display any players on its loading screen, proof that EA is trying to hide the identity of the cover star.

Which player on FIFA 22 cover?

For the moment, no credible leak has been published regarding the coverage of the next FIFA. Therefore, any information regarding the cover of the future football game is pure speculation. However, we can suggest a few names that seem favorites to represent FIFA 22 at the start of the school year.

First of all, in connection with recent news, it seems that Kylian Mbappé is an option to be put aside for FIFA 22. If a success for the French team at the Euros would probably have propelled him among the favorites to find the cover two years in a row, the defeat of EDF should cost him his place.

Then, it seems that EA is betting more and more on youth, proof of this is its latest videos and advertising campaigns on FIFA 20 and FIFA 21, highlighting the new generation. After Mbappé, we could therefore think of the following players:

  • Erling Haaland, the superstar from Norway has panicked the goal counters for two seasons and a transfer to a big European seems imminent.
  • Phil Foden, Manchester City and England's excellent run at the Euros has made Foden a favorite with Anglo-Saxon fans. If he remains little known outside the United Kingdom, a success of the English at the Euro could propel the British on the cover of FIFA 22.
  • Jason Mount, like Foden, the young midfielder had a great season with Chelsea, winning the Champions League. Thus, Mount like Foden would benefit a lot from the success of the English at the Euro.
  • Joao Felix, Spanish champion with Atlético Madrid, the young Portuguese prodigy has been promoted by EA for two years on FIFA. If the defeat of Portugal works against him, Felix could still make a good ambassador for EA.
  • Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho is expected at Manchester United for one of the biggest transfers of the summer. The young Brit has had a great season and EA has already used his image a lot during the last two games of FIFA. However, his lack of playing time with the British selection could cool EA.

A release date for FIFA 22?

At the moment, we don't know much about the next FIFA. A first trailer should reveal some new features on July 11. In addition, EA has a conference, on the sidelines of E3 2021, on July 22. It is almost certain that FIFA 22 will be there, as well as Battlefield 2042 and the next Madden. The official release date will certainly be presented at that time.

However, we must be able to assume that the title will be released between the third week of September and the first week of October 2021.

So much for the first information about the release date and the cover of the next FIFA 22. While waiting for the release of EA's new football game, you can find all the news and our FIFA 21 guides on
