FIFA 15 has been dated for release by EA Sports.
The next-generation edition of this year’s football franchise hits store shelves on September 26 in the UK, September 25 in Europe and September 23 in North America.
In addition to assigning launch dates to the forthcoming title, the publisher confirmed that Lionel Messi is the global cover star of this year’s installment.
This is the Argentina and Barcelona icon’s fourth appearance on a FIFA cover – after featuring on FIFA Street, FIFA 13 and FIFA 14.
This past season, the 27-year-old scored 28 league goals for FC Barcelona and captained Argentina to the FIFA World Cup final.
During the World Cup, Messi won four ‘Man of the Match’ awards, scored four times and received the ‘Golden Ball’ award for best player of the tournament.
In the coming weeks, EA Sports plans to reveal a number of regional covers featuring local talent with the renowned footballer.
FIFA 15‘s ‘incredible visuals’ were recently showcased in a promotional video.
The game is headed to Xbox One, PS4, Xbox 360, PS3, PC, Wii, PS Vita and Nintendo 3DS.
