Next-Gen FIFA Making Appearance at Microsoft Console Reveal Event Tomorrow

Posted May 20th, 2013 at 10:45 am


There have been plenty of indications that EA would have a presence at the Microsoft press conference which is set for tomorrow to debut their new console. That has now been confirmed as FIFA 14 will be shown off at the event. Whether Madden and NBA Live will appear remains unknown – it’ll either happen there or at an E3 press conference on June 10.

The rumors over some form of exclusivity to Microsoft from EA continues to be an intriguing possibility but it would be hard to believe FIFA would fall under that scenario unless it was limited to extra content. If anything Sony has been the stronger partner for FIFA which is a juggernaut worldwide. Microsoft nabbing FIFA even just for this event however is a big move and indicates a closer relationship with EA than maybe Sony would prefer.
