EA and FIFA have agreed to leave many employees in the country, but the impact on both sides has already begun. This is because of the split between the two, which is unlikely to happen in the near future. EA and FIFA have promised a whole new set of employees in the industry in 2024. This will also result in more employees returning to the country.
EA and FIFA have decided to part ways, and the consequences from the split have already begun to take shape. FIFA must now scramble to find a large publisher to continue pushing their soccer game franchise. EA, on the other hand, is renaming its future titles to EA Sports FC. It appears that the EA Austin office will now see their employment outsourced.
EA and FIFA''s division will likely result in a ton of turnover, as there had been a 30-year partnership that should now be discussed, presumably include a large number of people who had already worked on the soccer franchise. According to Knutson, the VP of customer experience at EA, said the terminations were a result of the redundancy in having customer service positions in FIFA''s states.

However, the group believes that the partnership would result in some serious losses. EA and FIFA have had the most successful gaming partnership in history, and there are likely employees from
EA must now employ employees who have no connection with the FIFA side of the game. This is because both are going to continue making soccer games, so it might result in more jobs opening for them in the near future. Someone who has worked on a FIFA title and knows the game might find their way to whatever title FIFA develops next. They are planning to launch some World Cup-based titles this fall and follow them up with a brand-new title in 2024. These are lofty ambitions, but it might result in plenty of work
EA may be passing a phase down in order to prepare for the upcoming title it has promised in 2023. EA Sports FC will continue its annual release schedule, and the sports gaming firm has promised that the first announcement will take place in June of 2023. This means that these resignations will be only temporary, and those who have lost their jobs will be welcomed back sooner rather than later.
