FIFA 21 Comes to Stadia on March 17, EA Sports Renews UEFA License
Multiple mobile FIFA offerings are also in development.
Stadia might be shutting down its first party studios, but Google have every intention (at least for now) to keep supporting the platform and bringing in more third party releases. Last year, EA confirmed that they would be bringing FIFA over to Stadia, and now, we know exactly when that is going to happen.
In a press release, EA Sports has confirmed that FIFA 21 will be releasing for Stadia on March 17. In addition to that, the publisher also confirms that multiple “mobile offerings” are also in development for the purposes of “expanding football video game access.”
EA also confirms that the FIFA franchise has now collectively sold 325 million units to date, and that more people are playing FIFA 21 right now as compared to FIFA 20 “at this point in their respective product cycles.”
Last but not least, EA has also confirmed that it’s signed an extension of its exclusive UEFA license, which means all UEFA competitions (including the likes of the Champions League and the Europa League) will continue to be represented in FIFA games in all their glory as part of the “multi-year” deal extension.
FIFA 21 is currently available on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and PC, as well as a Legacy Edition release on Nintendo Switch.
