EA Sports has confirmed that one league has been ruled out completely for this year’s FIFA 16 video game.
Earlier in April, there was a rumor that FIFA 16 would possibly include the North American Soccer League. The franchise already includes Major League Soccer. With the somewhat increased interest in soccer in the USA after the 2014 World Cup, people thought the game would be adding more USA teams.
A Brazilian FIFA blog got a hold of an EA Sports representative recently. The EA Sports representative denied that the North American Soccer League is to be included in FIFA 16. This means only Major League Soccer again will be in the game. No other North American teams look like they will be added.
EA Sports’s FIFA 16 may be facing some competition from Konami’s PES 2016. Konami is reportedly on the hunt to add more official leagues and teams from around the world. It looks like there will be a bidding war between the two sides to capture teams and leagues they have missed out in previous games.
EA Sports plans to release FIFA 16 possibly in September 2015. The company usually shares more information on its annual sports range at E3 each year.
