It’s hard to be surprised. FIFA 22 quickly found many buyers, and EA boasts the greatest player activity in the history of the series.
22 successful days of FIFA 22
The first numbers have already been published suggesting that FIFA 22 has a better start than any previously released edition of this football series. Now, much more extensive statistics have been presented, which show us even more clearly how much to be satisfied with the EA camp.
Within 22 days of the launch of FIFA 22, the game was reached by players from over 200 countries, who play an average of 89 million matches a day. In total, more than 2.1 billion matches were played during this period, with 5 billion goals scored.
There is also plenty of people to have fun in the career mode, where 2.1 million players have already created 3.1 million new clubs thanks to the Create Your Club feature. The strikers Erling Haland and Kylian Mbappe are, of course, leading the most bought players, followed by the younger Jude Bellingham. And in VOLTA mode, over 1.5 million avatars have been created and over 21 million matches have been played.
“The development of our global soccer platform is progressing at a dizzying pace and we can see an equally stunning commitment from our fantastic community. We are excited to continue to bring fans the most immersive soccer experience. Together with hundreds of licensing partners including the Premier League, Bundesliga, LaLiga Santander, UEFA and CONMEBOL, we are proud to create the most authentic interactive football platform enabling over 150 million fans from around the world to get closer to their favorite leagues, clubs and players in a meaningful way . ” – David Jackson, VP Brand at EA SPORTS FIFA
So good or is there simply no competition?
FIFA 22 debuted on PC, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and Google Stadia. Only on new-generation consoles does it offer HyperMotion technology, which, together with several other solutions, makes it look noticeably better. So much so that some people define the new and old generation versions with completely different games. Many PC owners are not satisfied because they got the worse one.
In some time we should learn the sales statistics, but it is already certain that they will also be impressive. I wonder how they will be broken down into individual platforms. Have you decided to buy FIFA 22? Because you are fans of the series or because of the lack of competition, after the spectacular flop of eFootball 2022.
