Fans of FIFA 18 got a tad excited this week after footage purported to show a FIFA ‘Street mode’ in the upcoming game.
There was enough evidence to support the idea FIFA 18 would be bringing back the immensely popular game mode…
Alas, it was all just a ruse, heinous bollocks on EA’s part.
Gameplay producer Sam Rivera told Dream Team Gaming not all it what it seems:
It was probably just The Journey.
There is no announcement of FIFA Street in FIFA 18.
Not yet, but who knows what Sam will drop on us in the months leading up to the game’s release later this year.
For the minute though, this is pretty devastating news for those who were hoping to see a return of FIFA Street.
Mat Prior, creative director of EA Sports told Dream Team the mode would not be featured in the game because of the ‘mechanics’:
It’s something we’re aware of, and we know people ask us about it, but we’ll see in the future.
To do it properly is not a light undertaking. It’s not just a case of shrinking the pitch and bringing in boards because of the way the AI works.
Fingers crossed they pull their fingers out and deliver the goods.
