It seems the cat has truly been let out of the bag as EA have all but announced that they are working on a FIFA World Cup 2014 title.
It will be released on next-gen titles but there is no official word as of yet if the game will be a fully fledged title or act as a DLC for FIFA 14.
Speaking at n EA investor call last night (Thanks SeekingAlpha), CEO Andrew Wilson stated:
In the last 2 weeks, you’ve also seen several announcements about our product slate for the remainder of this year and into FY ’15, We are refining our focus on our biggest brands and great new IP in development, including The Sims 4, EA SPORTS UFC, FIFA World Cup and Dragon Age: Inquisition.
EA’s CFO Blake J. Jorgensen also followed up saying:
We’ve talked about, without specifics on timing, we’ve talked obviously about titles like UFC, which is being developed and introduced next year. Obviously, a FIFA World Cup. We’ve talked about Dragon Age, and obviously, the Star Wars titles, ultimately in the future years. And so there’s a lot going on.
