With its scheduled worldwide launch on 29 September 2023 on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Windows, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S, one can pardon the excitement.
Already, questions have started flying about what the player ratings would be like.
Which players will get an upgrade? Which players will get a downgrade?
The anticipation is high, with excitement scaling mountain tops. Football gamers can't wait for the next instalment of the game.
They are particularly curious about what the ratings would be like.
