When EA Sports made the bold decision to break away from the FIFA brand and launch their own football simulator, EA Sports FC 24, fans and critics alike were curious to see how it would fare. Now, three months after its release, it's clear that the game has been a success and continues to attract players.
Upon its release in late September, EA Sports FC 24 received positive reviews and showcased new motion capture technology and exciting additions to the popular Ultimate Team mode. Despite its somewhat cumbersome name, the game managed to outsell its predecessor, FIFA 23, and garnered an enthusiastic response from players.
One of the most impressive achievements of EA Sports FC 24 was its initial player numbers. In its first week, the game attracted a staggering 11.3 million players, surpassing FIFA 23's figures by a million players. This number continued to rise, reaching 14.5 million players within the first four weeks of release. Even the mobile version of the game saw immense success, with 2.2 million fans downloading it on the first day, eventually increasing to 11.2 million downloads in the first 10 days.
The popularity of EA Sports FC 24 was further exemplified by its position as the Christmas number one game in the UK, outselling all other physical copies leading up to the holiday season. Clearly, the game has enjoyed strong sales compared to other titles on the market.
However, it is worth noting that player numbers have seen a slight decline in the past three months. Currently, there are around 14.1 million active players, which is a drop of 14,000 players. Nevertheless, this decrease is a normal occurrence for games as their popularity naturally wanes over time. Additionally, these numbers only reflect the player count on PC, as console numbers are not included, and most players opt for the console versions.
In terms of reception, EA Sports FC 24 has garnered similar scores to its predecessors, both from critics and fans. Critics awarded the game a score of 75 out of 100, while fans rated it 2.3 out of 10 in User Ratings. Comparatively, FIFA 23 received scores of 76 and 3.1, FIFA 22 scored 78 and 3.1, and FIFA 21 garnered 72 and 1, respectively. These scores indicate that EA Sports FC 24 is on par with the previous FIFA games in terms of quality, as perceived by both critics and fans.
