FIFA 22 is still some way off, but we should start seeing more news ahead of the game soon.
As this will be the first fully-optimised version of the game for Next-Gen consoles, the expectation is understandably high.
Find out all the latest information you need to know about EA’s next football sim, including release dates, news, new features, and more below.
Latest news – Perfect Paris
Achraf Hakimi is the latest major signing for moneybags PSG.
Signing for around £50 million from Italian champions Inter Milan, Hakimi is sure to make an impact in the French capital.
There could be more big names on the way too with the likes of Sergio Ramos and Gianluigi Donnarumma heavily linked.
Take a closer look at PSG new boy Hakimi here.
Unsurprisingly there has been no word on when FIFA 22 will officially be released, but we can have a pretty accurate guess.
FIFA 22 will likely be released between Friday, 24 September and Friday, 8 October, 2021, judging by the release in previous years.
The most popular and lucrative mode in the FIFA franchise is Ultimate Team, so this is where EA focuses its efforts.
Expect to see some new features, designs, and promo events throughout the year as EA will try to keep things fresh.
Ones to Watch
Ones to Watch cards have featured in the past couple of Ultimate Team seasons, and if it is anything like FUT 21 then it will be the first set of special cards on the new game.
The cards included are selected from the top summer transfers and are given dynamic ratings that increase with every selection in Team of the Week.
Take a look at who we think could feature in the promo next season.
Surely Sergio Aguero will pick up a Ones to Watch card early in FIFA 22.
The Argentina striker will be linking up with Lionel Messi next season in the Camp Nou and we can’t wait to see what the two can produce together.
Aguero will unlikely receive an 89 OVR, instead, we will likely see a slight decline in his ratings.
Dutch forward Memphis Depay has made his move to Barcelona.
After another impressive season for Lyon, Depay will be linking up with the likes of Lionel Messi, Sergio Aguero, and Antoine Griezmann next season in a stacked Barca attacking line.
It looks likely that Depay will operate from a wide area, but only time will tell.
Netherlands central midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum has officially signed for PSG.
Heavily linked with a move away from Anfield this summer, Wijnaldum had plenty of potential suitors with Barcelona and Bayern Munich both said to be interested.
This could lead to an excellent Ones to Watch card next season, and will also boost an already top-class PSG midfield.
Austrian defender David Alaba could be one of the top Ones to Watch players in FIFA 22 Ultimate Team.
Alaba has confirmed he will be leaving Bayern Munich this summer and has reportedly agreed to a five-year deal with Spanish giants Real Madrid.
Already a popular player in Ultimate Team thanks to his mobility, Alaba will add to the plethora of defensive talent in La Liga.
Alaba’s replacement at Bayern Munich has been confirmed, with French centre-back Dayot Upamecano making the switch from RB Leipzig for around £40 million.
We expect Upamecano to receive an upgrade on the next game, especially if he enjoys a good EUROs this summer.
Another defender with excellent pace, this will be a popular card next season.
Kane to City?
The summer transfer window rumour mill is in overdrive and Premier League champions Manchester City are reportedly eyeing up a move for Harry Kane.
Last season’s top goalscorer and top assist-maker will surely cost well in excess of £100 million, and Spurs look like they have no interest in selling.
If City do manage to secure the signing of Kane they could be unstoppable next season, but how would they line up in FIFA 22?
