EA have removed all FIFA games from digital stores ahead of EA FC 24, it's officially the end of an era
| Last updated
All FIFA games have been removed from the digital store in what truly marks the end of an era for the franchise.
FIFA 23 was the final ever game carrying a link to the world football governing body, as it will known be known as EA Sports FC after the partnership officially came to an end.
EA FC 24, which comes with a brand new logo and cover star in Manchester City sensation Erling Haaland, is released worldwide on September 29.
Those with the Ultimate Edition and EA Play have already been getting stuck into the game but ahead of the official release, EA have erased previous games from history as it is no longer available on online stores.
FIFA International Soccer was the first game released by EA but it was FIFA 96 where things really kicked into gear and proper, licensed players were used.
The franchise would continue to go from strength to strength ever year and the introduction of Ultimate Team in 2009 took it to new heights completely.
But although the game is more or less the same, EA are now heading into a completely different direction and it seems as though they want to forget about the past.
Fans have spotted the withdrawal on the PlayStation store, where the only options are to buy or acquire EA FC 24, FIFA points and in-game commentary.
According to GameReactor, this is also the case on all consoles, including Microsoft Store, Nintendo eShop and Steam - which includes the comment: "At the request of the publisher, EA SPORTS FIFA 23 is unlisted on the Steam store and will not appear in search."
It means FIFA games more or less extinct digitally, with the only way you can still access the old ones being if you have EA Play.
That is unless one owns the game already.
