It may not come as much of a surprise, but EA intends to keep releasing FIFA football games for the PS3 and Xbox 360 for the foreseeable future.
In a recent interview with EA Japan’s Kazuya Makita, it was revealed that the company intends to release new entries in the FIFA series for the PS3 and Xbox 360, so long as there are users.
When asked about the success of the FIFA games on the PS2, and the reasons they were still released years after the PS3 launched, Makita noted that the PS2 received FIFA games yearly because there will still a good user base for the console, though they didn’t expect to keep releasing games for the system for as long as they did, going on to say that “also with Xbox 360 and PS3, we will continue to support them as long as there are still users.”
It’s not surprising in the least, in fact we’d be shocked if EA pulled the plug on PS3 and Xbox 360 editions. There’s still a huge amount of people playing those consoles, many of whom won’t be upgrading to the PS4 or Xbox One for a long time, so it makes sense to keep producing content that will potentially still sell just as well as the next-gen versions.
Fear not PS3 and Xbox 360 owners, you’ll still be playing the latest FIFA titles for the next few years, though whether the PS3 will reach 14 years of support remains to be seen.
