Officially launched on September 30, FIFA 23 seems to be off to a very quick start. Today, EA unveiled its financial results, which provide new figures around the football simulation.
FIFA 23: goals, players, a record launch: all the lights are green
With the World Cup in Qatar in sight, FIFA 23 seems to appeal to a large number of players. Occupying 4 of the 5 places in the top French SELL during the week of October 3 to 9 and the first place in the September ranking in the United States (having only been released on the 30th) according to NPD, FIFA 23 seems set to break all records. A few days ago, EA reported that physical sales were 1.6 times greater than those of FIFA 22, and that more than 10.3 million players kicked a virtual ball in the first week.
The response from our fans has been nothing short of amazing, and we’re thrilled to have our community playing their favorite players and teams in FIFA 23 in record numbers. With the Men’s and Women’s World Cups, and exciting updates to our women’s in-game club football content still to come, we’re only just beginning to deliver the most authentic and immersive experience players will ever have. either, had also declared Nick Wlodyka, general manager of EA Sports.
Based on these figures, EA indicated that FIFA 23 made the best start of the license. Yesterday, the publisher revealed a whole series of statistics, allowing us to discover that 4.3 billion goals were scored, 15 billion minutes were played, and that 1.7 billion matches have been playedincluding 1 million wins for AFC Richmond, from the famous TV series Ted Lasso.
FIFA 23 does better than FIFA 22, Ultimate Team in shape
Today, EA announced its financial results, and said that taking into account the latest figures recorded, FIFA 23 had sold 10% more than FIFA 22 in the same periodwith an increase of 6% player count in Ultimate Team mode. Very encouraging figures, which should serve as a basis for the launch of EA Sports FC next year, as EA lost the right to use the FIFA name. Chris Suh, CFO of EAtook advantage of the publication of this report to declare:
The second quarter was a solid quarter. We again delivered on our revenue and profit commitments, driven by our EA Sports portfolio and cross-platform live services business. With our resilient business model, disciplined execution and sound underlying fundamentals, we are poised to deliver long-term growth.
It only remains to wait a little to find out the exact name of copies of FIFA 23 which were sold, whether physical or digital, in the weeks following the launch. But this ultimate version of “FIFA” at EA Sports has, for the moment in any case, nothing to worry about. eFootball 2022 has failed, and potential competitors such as UFL are slow to show up. As a reminder, UFL is a free-to-play game, developed and published by Strikerz, expected to be released in 2023. Initially expected for 2022, it has seen its release postponed to next year.
