The cover star for EA’s inaugural EA Sports FC game–which replaces the FIFA series in terms of branding–has reportedly been leaked.
Internet super sleuth billbil-kun reported that 22-year-old Manchester City striker Erling Haaland will be the cover star for EA Sports FC 24’s standard edition. This report follows a story earlier this week that supposedly revealed the release date for EA Sports FC 24.
The leaker opted to not share a photo of Haaland on the cover due to copyright concerns, VGC reported, but said the cover shows him in a Champions League game, preparing to fire off a shot.
The report went on to say that Haaland will also grace the cover of a reported Ultimate Edition of EA Sports FC 24, and he’ll supposedly be joined on it by 30 past and present male and female soccer stars like Sam Kerr, Pele, and Zinedine Zidane.
EA Sports FC 24 will reportedly release on September 29, and people who buy the more expensive Ultimate Edition can supposedly jump in an entire week early.
EA and FIFA have ended their partnership for the video game series, but EA Sports FC 24 will still have the same or a similar lineup of players, teams, and stadiums because EA has other licensing deals in place. FIFA was reportedly asking EA to pay $1 billion to use the FIFA name in its games, a fee it would need to pay every four years to continue their relationship. EA instead opted to stop working with FIFA.
