FIFA 17 News Roundup #7

Ready for another roundup of FIFA 17 news?

If you are still waiting to play the new FIFA on your mobile, then the wait is over as EA Sports confirmed that the new FIFA Mobile will be released worldwide on October 11th for iOS, Android and WP devices.


For those wondering why the Brazilian Serie A still have players with fake names, even though EA Sports initially announced that the brazilian clubs will have licensed player names, here’s an official update on the situation:

“Brazilian clubs will launch with generic player names, and will not be included in FUT. We’ll update all FIFA 17 fans about player names when and if information becomes available.”

Kinda strange that EA didn’t shared this important update on any of their social pages instead limiting to post it here.
