According to a report from VG24/7 yesterday, "FIFA 14" executive producer David Rutter talked about some of the things the team will be looking to implement for next year.
"For someone with a connected console you’re completely connected with the EA Sports Football Club component of the game now. Everything you do in the game counts towards your level, you can see what your mates have been up to.
"We’re delivering data updates on professional players and injecting challenges from real matches.
"You can download an App to keep track of your EASFC stuff, and manage your Ultimate Team too from the bus or workplace. You’re right – it’ll get even more like this in the next few years," Rutter said.
Rutter talked about some other fixes and changes they are looking to make to the franchise for next year.
"I think this is because it’s an excellent experience, and also because it’s sometimes a major hassle hooking up with your mates online to play head to head or the people online are quitting/cheating/beating you up. We’re working on that too.
"For FIFA we’re already really pretty broad, single player, co-op, competitive multiplayer, ranked, unranked, career, and all locked to a player or as any player, across a massive comprehensive set of players, teams and leagues. It’s a huge game.
"Our biggest features in the last three years have probably come from ‘deep’. I think deep is what gets the 90+ ratings and the fans eager, but you can’t be too narrow. Our fans have really diverse tastes in modes and we need to cater to that," Rutter said.
