EA Sports Delays Release of World Cup Ultimate Team for FIFA 14

Posted May 28th, 2014 at 5:30 pm


Last week EA Sports announced details on the World Cup content coming to FIFA 14 on Xbox One, PS4, PS3, 360, and PC. A separate Ultimate Team would be added for free on May 29 featuring the players, kits, and other elements of the World Cup competition with both online and offline tournament modes as the ways to play.

On the eve of the new mode’s release the company has announced a delay. The post on the official forum for FIFA¬†from a community manager cites issues discovered in final testing that necessitated being fixed prior to rolling it out. No new date to expect the mode has been given but they are “working hard to have the update ready to release in the coming days”.

Given that this is a revenue-generating mode, and one that is anticipated to be very popular worldwide, the problems must have been extremely serious for EA to hold off on releasing it. Time is money in this case…the actual World Cup is set to begin on June 12.
