FIFA 22 has sent fans into a frenzy of speculation after a potential 'online career mode' was hinted at in an Electronic Arts job listing.
The FIFA publisher has made tweaks to career mode in recent FIFA instalments, but EA Sports has still been hit with criticism over the lack of innovation.
However, eagle-eyed fans have now spotted a potential online career mode, which they believe could be a new feature in the upcoming FIFA 22.
EA posted a job listing for the role of an Online Software Engineer in Vancouver, British Columbia.
Twitter account FIFA 21 News spotted that the description for the role at EA made specific mention of recruiting someone to potentially work on an online career mode
"As an Online Software Engineer, you will help build our networked play development team -- whether that be in our online career mode, ultimate team, or core online systems and protocols," reads the job description.
"We are looking for engineers who enjoy prototyping and planning, adding amazing new features to an existing and beloved game, and improving existing code."
Despite the mention of a so-called online career mode, it still remains unclear if EA Sports plans to have it included in FIFA 22 ahead of its official release.
EA has yet to officially announce FIFA 22, but the publisher could soon unveil the new title this summer.
The American company will hold its EA Play Live showcase in July as many players are expecting to see their first real taste of FIFA 22.
The most recent instalment in EA Sports' highly successful franchise, FIFA 21, was initially released last year for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC.
FIFA 21 has since launched on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X and Google Stadia.
