EA Sports and FIFA reached an agreement to extend their current licensing deal through 2022, EA announced.

The deal with FIFA, the international organization that regulates football, gives EA Sports exclusive rights to create FIFA-branded games using real teams and players through Dec. 31, 2022.

As part of the agreement, EA Sports also holds the exclusive licensing rights to make official FIFA World Cup games and maintains its status as a presenting partner of the FIFA Interactive World Cup.

[adsense250itp]“EA Sports released the first FIFA-branded soccer game in 1993, and 20 years later our partnership with FIFA continues to be very strong,” executive vice president and head of EA Sports Andrew Wilson said in a press release. “Our franchise has become the benchmark for quality and innovation in the sports videogame genre, and we look forward to many more years of connecting with consumers around the world with our games carrying the prestigious FIFA name.”

FIFA 13 released last September as another great entry in the franchise. A new installment of the series is expected to be released around the same time this year with a version for next-gen consoles expected to be ready at launch.

In a fourth quarter 2013 earnings report made by EA this week, the company announced FIFA 13 sold 14.5 million copies. Revenue from digital sales in FIFA 13, mainly from the game’s popular Ultimate Team mode, reached more than $200 million. EA also said more than 65 million games are played in FIFA weekly.

Last month, the first details for FIFA 14 were revealed by EA. New features in this year’s installment of the series include improved real ball physics, a more lifelike pure shot and variable dribble touches.
