EA confirms FIFA 2014 World Cup game

EA will release a FIFA 2014 World Cup game next year, CEO Andrew Wilson confirmed during the company's second quarter earnings call last night.

The executive said (via Seeking Alpha): "In the last two weeks, you've seen several announcements about our product slate for the remainder of this year and into FY '15. We are refining our focus on our biggest brands and great new IP in development, including The Sims 4, EA Sports UFC, FIFA World Cup and Dragon Age: Inquisition."

EA has released tie-in games for every FIFA World Cup and UEFA European Championship since 1998’s FIFA Road to World Cup 98. The first seven titles released under the FIFA and UEFA licenses came in the form of standalone retail games, but the most recent, UEFA Euro 2012, launched as a £15.99 digital expansion for FIFA 12.

Earlier this week, EA Sports released a new FIFA 14 gameplay trailer showing off the Xbox One and PS4 versions of this year’s game in action ahead of their release next month.

    Actually, Costa Rica will surely be in the game no matter what format. The 2010 World Cup game has almost every team on the planet in it. It has so many that one thing I like to do with it is replace all the teams in finals mode with teams ranked at 1.5 stars or less. It makes a neat change to see the knockout rounds being contested by teams like Luxembourg, Guatemala, Indonesia, and Namibia.

    I hope they go all fricken out and do a standalone game. None of that Euro 2012 BS. South Africa 2010 was one of my favorite games ever period.

    Why does the thumbnail remind me of a giant Kakuna
