FIFA 22 video game on Xbox Series X and Xbox One

In an interesting turn of events, it seems that some Xbox One owners were able to have a taste of the yet to be released FIFA 23 entry yesterday, as spotted by Pure Xbox. The entry’s official release is set for September 30.

The entry was available on Xbox Store for a short period, but the issue seems to be fixed as the entry is no longer available. However, the few that actually managed to access it took to Twitter to post images showing that they were able to download it.

It now seems that gamers will have to wait for the September 30 launch as access has since been blocked. However, if you have an EA Play / Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription you will be able to test out the game for 10 hours prior to its release. This comes months after the announcement that FIFA and EA Sports were severing their partnership, having the game proceed as EA SPORTS FC starting next year.
