Xbox One Version of FIFA 14 Canceled in Japan to the Surpise of (Almost) No One

FIFA 14 was supposed to be one of the Xbox One launch games in Japan on September 4th, and Microsoft included the game in the latest presentations of the console to the press, but Electronic Arts announced today that the Japanese Xbox One release of the now almost outdated chapter of the successful soccer franchise has been canceled.

The decision comes with a very simple explanation: FIFA 15 will be released in Japan on October 9th, and that will include the Xbox One version. Quite obviously Electronic Arts thought that it did not make sense to launch a game just over a month before its successor would hit the shelves.

While it’s a bit unorthodox to communicate the cancellation only two weeks before the release date, Japanese Xbox One fans should not worry, as they’ll have to wait just a month longer to get their FIFA fix.

He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
