With one of the most exciting finals ever, the World Cup 2022 in Qatar who celebrated Argentina and its captain Leo Messi. However, another almost equally sensational winner emerges from the competition, namely theinfallible simulator by Ea Sportswhich for the fourth consecutive edition he guessed the name of the national team that would have lifted the cup to the sky. The software developed by the famous video game production company had in fact already correctly predicted the previous triumphs of Spain in 2010, Germany in 2014 and France in 2018. Will the 3-in-a-row continue or will it fatally end together with the game license agreement?
The forecast for 2022
It was last early November when EA Sports released the long-awaited outcome of the prediction on the 2022 World Cup which would open a few days later in Qatar, and the simulator veered towards South America: Argentina once again on top of the world after the 1986 triumph signed Diego Armando Maradona e Leo Messi absolute protagonist with the prizes of the Golden Boot of the World Cup as the best goalscorer and best player of the tournament. When the games were over, only the first of the two collateral mini-predictions was missed due to the monstrous performance of the French Kylian Mbappé who scored a hat-trick in the final match, otherwise another impeccable prediction of the algorithm.
Another algorithm had also got it right: the one developed by Bca Research based on the statistics of Fifa and he also expected Argentina to win on penalties as it happened – albeit not with Portugal. To get to 5 correct predictions in a row, in 2026, EA Sports will have to deal with an increase in teams from 32 to 48 on the occasion of the next edition of the World Cup which will be held in four years in Canada, Mexico and the United States of America. Assumed and not granted that the simulator will still be active, given that the current version of the game Fifa it will be the last to be called like this: in 2023 it will indeed become Ea Sports FCgiven the end of the multi-year license agreement.
