EA are confident that FIFA 14 could finally be the game that pips Call of Duty in sales this year and be the best selling game of the year.
This is echoed by FIFA 14 producer Sebastian Enrique who stated that whilst Konami’s Pro Evolution Soccer series is competition, they also share the same stance for Activision’s highly successful Call of Duty series. They feel that the improvements in FIFA 14 will create for a more rewarding experience and therefore they hope FIFA 14 will be the best selling game of the year. Speaking to MCV, Mr Enrique stated:
“I respect Konami a lot and they produce good games. A lot of people have played their games for ages. I think having competition is a good thing but we don’t consider competition to just be Pro Evolution Soccer. Call of Duty is also competition, People that are playing Call of Duty are not playing FIFA. We want them to play FIFA and we achieve that by creating the best possible game that we can create. That’s what we focus on. We want to exceed everyone’s expectations and exceed our own expectations and create the best game. Competition or not, these goals are not going to change for us.”
