Following the conclusion of Euro 2020, Electronic Arts announced its upcoming FIFA 22 release. However, the news didn’t arrive without some surprises. Apparently, PC players will be denied access to next-gen improvements in fear of having to exclude a majority of PC gamers who don’t have computers with specifications advanced enough to run a next-gen game.

EA will be introducing the series to next-generation consoles PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S for the first time. Heavily marketed on its HyperMotion technology, a next-gen advancement, FIFA 22 seems to be a promising new iteration in the classical franchise for sports enthusiasts.

EA’s decision is based on the fact that PC is not the biggest market in the gaming industry, therefore greater priority is given to console players. The gaming company claims the decision to include no next-gen improvements in FIFA 22 game is made with the notion that PC players with lower specifications can enjoy the release regardless. Is it a fair approach to the situation? Debatable.

Meanwhile, the brand new HyperMotion technology that ensures realistic lighting and animations are going to grant next-gen console gamers perhaps the best FIFA experience, at least in terms of visuals and player movement on the pitch. FIFA 22 release date is set for 1st October 2021, let’s hope that the pandemic won’t get in the way with this one and cause a delay. The game is now planned to be released on Steam, Google Stadia, Origin, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
