It seems otherwise, but the conflict between Ukraine and Russia is not over yet, which began a couple of months ago and it seems that not yet will have a peaceful resolution. Given this, some companies have sympathized with Ukraine, and one of them is Electronic Arts , who seems to provide support through FIFA 23 launch.
Through a statement, the company said that Russian clubs will be eliminated from the equation until the conflict is over, or can even extend a little more depending on the situation. It is worth noting that EA had already made similar, because a couple of months ago he canceled the distribution of his games to Russia and also the withdrawal of the Russian team in FIFA 22 .
Here is a fragment of your message:
EA Sports is solidarity with the Ukrainian people and, like so many voices worldwide, asks for peace and the end of the invasion of Ukraine.
According to our partners in FIFA and UEFA, EA Sports will not include the Russian national team or Russian clubs in FIFA 23.
It is worth commenting, that EA also vetoed some Russian accounts to have online competitive modes. All in order to show empathy towards the country that was attacked without prior notice.
Remember that FIFA 23 launches on September 30 in PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Nintendo Switch, Stadia and PC .
