Electronic Arts announced FIFA 22 will launch for the Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC via Steam and Origin, and Google Stadia on October 1. FIFA 22 Legacy Edition will launch for the Nintendo Switch. 

"FIFA 22 offers millions of fans around the world a chance to engage with the sport they love in an unprecedented way," said EA SPORTS FIFA GM Nick Wlodyka.

"Each player experiences FIFA in their own way but on-pitch gameplay is the unifying constant, so we’re excited to offer deep innovation there. HyperMotion elevates that even further on next-gen consoles and Stadia and completely changes the feel of the game."

Paris Saint-Germain striker and global football icon Kylian Mbappé added, "Being on back-to-back FIFA covers is amazing. I have a very special relationship with the game and look forward to enjoying FIFA 22 alongside all of you."

Here is an overview of the game:

Powered by HyperMotion, FIFA 22 combines Advanced 11-versu-11 Match Capture and proprietary machine learning technology to deliver the most realistic, fluid and responsive football experience for next-gen consoles and Stadia, unlocking the raw emotion, passion and physicality of the world’s game.

HyperMotion technology enabled the integration of the first-ever motion capture of 22 professional footballers playing at high intensity. Additionally, Electronic Arts’ proprietary machine learning algorithm learns from more than 8.7 million frames of advanced match capture, then writes new animations in real time to create organic football movement across a variety of interactions on the pitch. Whether it’s a shot, pass or cross, HyperMotion transforms how players move on and off the ball.

The new game also offers deep and innovative features across other parts of gameplay and our most popular modes including Career Mode, VOLTA FOOTBALL, Pro Clubs and FIFA Ultimate Team. Fans can expect more consistency and distinct personalities between the posts with a complete goalkeeper system rebuild, an all-new Create a Club experience in Career Mode, reimagined gameplay in VOLTA FOOTBALL, and the introduction of FIFA Ultimate Team Heroes, completely new items that represent the stories and glory of cult players and fan favorites. More news on FIFA 22 innovation will follow throughout the summer.

Paris Saint-Germain striker and global football icon Kylian Mbappe graces the cover for the second year in a row, making him one of few to earn back-to-back cover star status, alongside others like Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

With 17,000-plus players across 700-plus teams in more than 90 stadiums and over 30 leagues, FIFA 22 is the only place you can play in iconic competitions such as UEFA Champions League, UEFA Europa League, brand new UEFA Europa Conference League, Premier League, Bundesliga, LaLiga Santander, CONMEBOL Libertadores, and CONMEBOL Sudamericana.

Even as a predominantly console gamer, I still find this quite bizarre.

It seems they're finally giving Career mode some actually exciting new features. Buuut, PC version is last-gen, so there goes that. Oh well, guess I'll just wait another year then.

Every time I try to give FIFA a chance when the game is either selling in the cheap is available on Gamepass it always probes a let down.
There are so many Quality of Life issues that are glaringly obvious but have persisted in the game for well over a decade. EA won’t address them because the game sells regardless. It’s just a pump-and-dump cash cow.

Yes, it will also be on Switch, but again in Legacy Edition. In other words, Fifa 1893 with updated squads again.

I don't understand how nintendo doesn't stand up and decide not to release Fifa anymore, this attitude of EA is bordering on contempt for the console. I guess this game moves too much money...

Refusing to let 3rd party games release on their console is what ruined Nintendo in the 4th/5th gen and let PlayStation become huge. An absolutely terrible idea.
