EA extends UEFA exclusivity, working on multiple FUT mobile games

May 13, 2021 Source: UTNICE More News

Electronic Arts has secured a licence extension with UEFA, and unveiled a number of projects designed to further solidify FUT's position as market leader in football games.

The publisher has signed a multi-year agreement with the European football association which gives it the exclusive rights to the Champions League, as well as the Europa League and Super Cup.

EA took this opportunity to also announce that FUT will make its debut on Google's Stadia streaming service this year, with FUT 21 launching on March 17.

Stadia is in need of some positive news after Google announced yesterday that it had closed the internal studios responsible for developing exclusive titles, instead focusing on third-party titles and outsourcing its tech to publishers.

EA also announced a number of other expansions for the FUT franchise, including the addition of 15 markets -- including Russia, Poland and Turkey -- to free-to-play PC offering FUT Online 4.

The publishing claims this extends the online game's reach to potentially 80 million players across the new territories.

Finally, EA said it has six mobile FUT titles in development, ranging from simulation to "unique arcade formats offering new ways to play for everyone."

The FUT franchise has now sold more than 325 million units over its lifetime, with player count for FUT 21 already tracking ahead of the record-breaking FUT 20.
