You guys have been asking us on Twitter about the omission of Tournament mode in FIFA 14 on the PS4 and Xbox One, so we went directly to EA to get an answer.
The question was why is Tournament not in FIFA 14 on the PS4 and Xbox One, and here is EA’s answer:
Each time we develop a new FIFA game, we spend a lot of time reviewing and evaluating features based on popularity, real world trends, and our development resources. For the new generation of FIFA 14 on Xbox One and PS4, we decided not to include Tournament Mode, which accounted for a very small percentage of games played in FIFA 13, in order to focus on the most important areas and modes in the game. We took those resources and budget, and focused on many other new areas of the game, including Living Worlds and Stadiums, Career Mode, and expanded Online Seasons. As always, we will continue to listen to fan feedback to determine the features we include in future versions of the game. Thanks for your consistent feedback on Twitter, Facebook, and the forums.
There you go, folks. It seems like it’s a fair omission based on usage. Plus, if it allowed EA to spend more time working on the gameplay and more used modes, then you can kind of understand. What do you guys think? The comments section is yours.
