EA: Next-Gen FIFA is in development, “very well prepared” to take on PES

Posted By | On 11th, Jun. 2012

EA might be very well making a new engine for its popular franchise FIFA to prepare for the arrival of next-gen consoles. It’s sort of what Konami is doing when they revealed that next-gen PES will be utilizing their brand new Fox engine.

EA Sports boss Andrew Wilson said to CVG that plans are under way to prepare for the next-gen shift and didn’t beat around the bush when asked about it.

“I think that would be a fair assessment, yes,” he said. “We are working diligently. We learnt a lot through the last transition and we have not rested on our laurels once. I think right now we are the people’s game.

“We have a responsibility and an obligation to them to continue to deliver great games and in the advent of a new console cycle I think we are very well prepared to deliver against that.”

He also mentioned that they are ready for Konami’s PES and will match them easily.

“The things that are challenging to us as we work around systems to deliver things… All of a sudden the doors fly open and we can deliver gamers even more compelling and engaging experiences that expand across platforms, geographies, business models and ultimately throughout years where again, what FIFA is doing this year you never have to reset your level again.

“I fully expect Konami and everyone else to come into a next generation console cycle doing the best they possibly can. We wouldn’t expect anything different, but we’re going to be right there.”
