EA Sports confirmed an April 15th release date for 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil on the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3, but when asked why it wouldn’t be heading to the new consoles, they responded via Twitter basically stating the audience wasn’t big enough to warrant a full release.
Why isn’t our World Cup game on X1/PS4? We are making the best game we can for our largest audience, which is still on 360 & PS3. 1/2
— EA SPORTS FIFA (@EASPORTSFIFA) February 6, 2014
Next-gen console owners who already own FIFA 2014 will still get to experience some World Cup action, with a “range of engaging content, promotions and tournament within FIFA Ultimate Team so that those fans can experience the World Cup in unique and fun ways.”
