If you were hoping to play as the likes of Santos, Internacional and Flamengo in the upcoming FIFA title, you’ll be disappointed by today’s news as no Brazilian teams will feature in FIFA 15, it has been revealed.
In a statement, EA Sports said: Over the past several weeks, we have been revealing exciting details and announcing all the great new features coming up for FIFA 15.
“But it’s equally important that we keep you informed of other changes to the game from FIFA 14, including details on the leagues and players you play with across EA SPORTS FIFA titles.”
The statement continued: “Today, we want to inform you that due to some changes in the ways players are licensed in Brazil domestic leagues, we were unable to reach an agreement with the Brazilian rights holders for their inclusion in FIFA 15.
“While this is unfortunate news for many of our fans, we were able to retain the Brazil National Team in FIFA 15 as well as the Brazilian stars that play in other top leagues around the world. Thanks for your understanding as we continue to keep the lines of communication open with the Brazilian rights holders.”
In the statement, EA Sports added: “We have some amazing news coming about leagues and licenses as we approach Gamescom on August 13th, so stay tuned for much more.”
FIFA 15 will launch on the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One from Friday, September 26th, 2014.
