FIFA World was stated as the future of FIFA, because EA only earns the money by in-game purchases. The concept didn’t work out, so EA decided to shut down the project. The game was still in Bèta and so the game will be shut down before it was even officially released. The servers will be shut down on July 14th, so you have until then to play it.
The official announcement of EA Sports is:
First and foremost, we know our loyal and passionate community will be most disappointed by this news. Your feedback and support during the beta testing period was invaluable and inspiring. From everyone on the FIFA World team, we thank you. Our goal with FIFA World was to create an authentic FIFA experience that could be enjoyed by the millions of football fans around the world who don’t have access to a console or high-powered PC. The result was FIFA World, a new PC experience that combined award-winning FIFA game play with a live service. After a beta of nearly 18 months, an enormous amount of feedback and some great times with our players, we just didn’t have the momentum to bring the game to a full commercial launch. It’s a tough decision, but we believe ultimately the right one, that we stop development on the game. FIFA World beta servers will be open for the next 90 days until July 14th, when they will be permanently shut down. We encourage everyone to use any remaining FIFA Point balance by that time. While you can still spend FIFA Points you currently have, purchasing of new FIFA Points will be disabled as of today, as will the ability to register new accounts. If you have questions about this, please contact us at help.ea.com.
Once again, we thank everyone who participated in the FIFA World Beta. Our team is proud of what we have achieved with this game and we’re not done looking at new ways to bring new FIFA experiences to players around the world.
We would like to know your opinion about FIFA World, if you have played it. Was it a good game for you? Or was the focus too much on you buying some FIFA Points, so EA can earn money? Please let us know in the comments down below!
