The fans of the famous soccer simulator by Electronic Arts, FIFA, are looking forward to getting the newest edition in the franchise, the one which will cover the 2015 / 2016 soccer season. And since it is the beginning of the summer, gamers and tech enthusiasts alike are happy to count less months to the ends of the year, when FIFA 16is expected to be released. However, not all the fans of the famous soccer franchise will rejoice with the launch of the upcoming edition of FIFA. Officials talking on behalf of Electronic Arts have recently said in a statement that there will be no Nintendo platforms version for FIFA 16, a move which surprised both the tech experts and tech enthusiasts.
The recent statement in connection to this matter has been released by a representative of Electronic Arts. Within the announcement, it was made clear that the video game developer and publisher will not cover the PS Vita or Nintendo 3DS when it comes to the release of FIFA 16. In addition to that, the Wii and Wii U are in the same situation.
When it comes to a mobile version of the game, there are no news related to this matter. Electronic Arts has not yet made any comment regarding a mobile version of FIFA 16.
Most of the analysts in the field who have shown interest to the matter of FIFA 16 and the platforms on which it will be released have said that not having a Wii or Wii U version for the upcoming soccer simulator is rather unexpected.
And when you go back to the history of the famous FIFA franchise, you learn that 2015 might be the first year in which Electronic Arts declines to release a Nintendo platform version for a FIFA game, after the same events unfolded in 2000.
As for the platforms that are lucky to get FIFA 16 this year, a representative of the video game publisher and developer behind the famous soccer simulator has written in a post on a blog that FIFA 16 will come to the most successful video game consoles of the recent times: PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and the good old PC will all have FIFA 16 versions designed for them.
The analysts connected to the flow of events have said that more details about the recent announcement made by Electronic Arts are awaited and expected to come soon.
This is bad news for Wii U, as the platform by Nintendo lacks in offering a proper variety of video game titles, like Call of Duty, Assassin’s Creed or Battlefield.
