How did EA react to this mistake
In addition to allowing users to buy FIFA 23 with an unexpected price, EA also emailed each Epic game store user did so and admitted his mistake. The publisher of the popular game also confirmed that they will not ask for exact numbers during the game’s release.
According to a report by IGN, the e-mail read: “We scored a spectacular own goal when we accidentally offered to pre-purchase FIFA 23 on the Epic Games Store at the incorrect price. It was our mistake and we want to let you know that we will honor all prior purchases made at that price. ”
Things to know about FIFA 23
According to the report, “the significant price drop coincides with a significant release of the long-standing football franchise.” The report also mentions that FIFA 23 will be its final name as EA has refused to pay $250 million per year. Instead, publishers will start fresh in 2023 like EA Sports FC.
Furthermore, in FIFA 23, a female player will be featured on the international cover for the first time in the franchise’s history. The report claims that Chelsea star Sam Kerr will feature PSG’s Kylian Mbappé on the cover of the Ultimate Edition. The move celebrates women’s clubs being added to FIFA for the first time, all of which will be available to play when the game releases on September 30.
