The Future of FIFA Games
We’re starting to learn more about what the future of FIFA games will look like following the release of the final FIFA game by EA in September. FIFA has announced three new games that will all take place in blockchain or Web 3.0 form starting this fall.
AI League: FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 Edition is developed by Altered State Machine and will feature 4 vs 4 gameplay. Games will be played by AI-controlled characters but feature “player input at tactical moments,” according to the developers.
FIFA is also collaborating with Uplandme to create FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 in the Upland Metaverse, which will allow players to collect virtual items from the 2022 FIFA World Cup in the Upland world. Upland allows players to buy and sell virtual properties in a virtual metaverse, so gamers who like that sort of thing and are soccer fans might enjoy it.
If making predictions are your thing, then you might want to check out Matchday Challenge: FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 Edition. According to the developer, Matchday Challenge offers a “highly engaging casual social prediction game based on football cards.” On its surface, it sounds a bit like trying to find an alternative to Ultimate Team in order to engage fans during the event.

Bandai Namco’s Tales of Symphonia Remastered is arriving on consoles on February 17, 2023. If you’re the type that loves Collector’s Editions, you can get the Tales of Symphonia Remastered: Chosen Edition exclusively on the Bandai Namco store, and it comes with a steelbook commemorating the release.

Indiana Jones Series on Disney+?
It wouldn’t be the first time Indiana Jones was ever in a television series, but there are rumors that Disney is exploring the possibility of an Indiana Jones Disney+ series similar to their Star Wars and Marvel series.
It’s highly unlikely that Harrison Ford would appear in the series, but this might be an opportunity to introduce a younger actor to the role following the release of Indiana Jones 5 in 2023. Indiana Jones was last on the small screen for the Young Indiana Jones series in the 1990s.
