FIFA 13 vommunity manager CHUBOI7 wrote on the forums: “Some fans may wonder why we can’t fix all the known issues at once.
That’s a fair question and the answer isn’t quite as simple. We are delivering improvements and fixes in such a way to ensure the millions of people playing FIFA 13 each day do not experience undue or overly lengthy network/server outages, that title updates and other improvements are done to a high quality, and that we’re confident the changes will improve the FIFA 13 experience for everyone.
“We have plans for further updates to FIFA 13 this month, so stay tuned and we’ll keep you updated on the dates for these improvements, as and when available.”
It was earlier planned for a launch later this week, but it’s since been delayed.
“We apologize for a delay in the FIFA 13 Title Update,” EA Sports FIFA tweeted. “A knock-on issue was detected in the patch planned for this weekend so it was held.
“We’re working with our partners to establish a new schedule for the update and we will provide information as soon as it becomes available.”
Stay tuned for updates.
