FIFA 09 Stadium Pack – 150 New Stadiums! Pc Game
From the looks of the scene released via social media this afternoon, the deal was probably not salvageable. The Russian soccer team, Sbornaya, responded by releasing a statement to the media this afternoon, saying that they were ending their partnership with EA. Still, the team is technically the first to announce their non-participation in the new game.
The announcement of the deal in August was first announced at the FIFA Direct event in London, and the initial release date was scheduled to coincide with the launch of FIFA 18 three months later. However, as previously mentioned today, it seems as though EA Sports has quietly pushed back the launch date of FIFA 17 to August 27, 2017.
On the other hand, August 27, 2017, coincides with the start of the next FIFA World Cup, Russia 2018, and EA is already planning for this event with the submission of the trailer to the E3 last month. This would also coincide with the release of FIFA 17 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
Although the game would launch in other territories like Europe and Australia, most likely the initial focus of the new video game would be in China, where the game would most likely generate more revenue since many of the soccer players in that country specialize in the five-a-side game.
It is uncertain what effect this announcement would have on the launch of FIFA 17, but it especially will have an effect on the launch of FIFA 18, especially since there is still no release date set for this fall’s game.
