The guys over at gamesindustry.biz have a cracker of an interview with EA SPORTS President Andrew Wilson on how EA took FIFA from the doldrums to the top of sports gaming. This one really is a must read guys.
As well as the early strategy EA adopted to try and revive FIFA that centered around online gaming, this interview also goes in-depth on how the development team were assembled, how Pro Clubs came to fruition and it even offers a hint at what the future may hold for FIFA. The full (and excellent) interview is right here.
“The first time we stood up and gave the presentation about 11 versus 11 online the company thought we had rocks in our head”
After you’ve had a read gentlemen, hit the comments.
