FIFA 20 is coming. After a disruptive year on FIFA 19, this could be the biggest release in recent history for EA Sports. Will they get it right this time?FIFA 19 provided us with the most dramatic update in the FIFA series since FIFA 14, when the games came to next-gen consoles PlayStation 4 and Xbox One for the first time. New kick-off house rules and timed finishing arrived but despite that, the game has been countless criticised. The game has received a series of patch updates to correct its faults since release, with the problems culminating in Bleacher Report re-reviewing FIFA 19 and dropping its review rating from 8.5/10 to 5.5/10.

Changes to this once-trusty, now-rusty timesink are covered in depth via GR’s look at FIFA 20 career mode, but a couple suggested by EA forum poster Fifaplayer4000 warrant inclusion here too. A major issue is the mode’s inability to maintain interest over multiple seasons, and his suggestion of changeable sponsors, kits and stadiums would alleviate that. As would the proposed removal of upper growth limits applied to every player.

“Fixed potentials must go,” he writes. “Players should grow or decline based on form, not potential. Sometimes you can have a 31-year-old that scores 33 goals in a season but still declines. Or a young player that never plays but still grows massively. Players should improve after seven games of good form or something like that.” It’s a neat concept, and means you’d finally see pros who peak in the veteran stage of their career, such as Glenn Murray or Sol Bamba.

Goalkeeper movement has also faced much criticism, with the concept highly unrealistic. Have you ever seen a goalkeeper run across his as the striker shoots to gather the ball in his arms? With the game so fast, you cannot react to goalkeeper movement as you line up your shot, so the plausible solution would be for movement to only apply one step either side for the ‘keeper. Think of it how goalies gamble on free kicks by taking a step to the opposing side as the set piece is taken.

The FIFA 20 release date is likely in September. EA typically releases new FIFA games in late September and that is likely going to happen this year. The one curveball is that EA pushed up Madden 20 to August 2nd, almost a whole month ahead of the release date for the game two years ago.We could see the FIFA 20 release date arrive earlier this year, but it’s up in the air at this point.Our best guess is that the FIFA 20 release date will be on September 27th for the standard edition. We will likely see a higher end FIFA 20 edition that arrives on September 24th.
