A number of video games from the sports are set to be launched in the remaining part of the year 2017. And FIFA 18 is one of those. There have been lots of talks going on around among the fans regarding the FIFA 18 features. Already a few have been predicted by the fans, and the latest one which has hit the headlines will clearly provide a clear idea of how things are going to shape up.
Previously it was expected that FIFA 18 would feature Chinese Super League as an integral part of the game. However, the latest development has pushed it to the back seat. And at this juncture, it would require a miracle to see the Chinese Super League making its debut as a part of the FIFA 18 features. Sam Rivera, the gameplay producer of EA Sports, has remarked that they always intend to bring in the best possible things in the game but at times the technicalities come in as an unavoidable barriers, and the same has happened in the case of the cash-rich league coming as a part of the FIFA 18 features.
In fact, he has been quoted saying, “Our intention with FIFA is to bring the best leagues to the world.” He has further added, “Yes, we thought about the Chinese championship, but for now, the Super League will not be included in FIFA 18.” He has also said that they have got “a great dedicated team that always works on licensing,” but it is the process which often hinders the smooth advancement.
However, Sam Rivera has not given any hint regarding the fact that whether there is going to be Indian Super League in FIFA 18 or not. But the future of ISL in FIFA 18 seems to be bleak particularly after coming across the news related to the future of the Chinese Super League.
Now the omission of the Chinese Super League will certainly affect the presence of a number of famous players. And if the latest transfer rumors turn out to be true, gamers will not be able to come across one of the most popular names in world football at this moment. And that is Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. The winner of the Golden Boot award in the Bundesliga this year has been linked with a move away from Germany to China to play for Tianjin Quanjin.
And as it has been revealed that Chinese Super League is not going to be a part of the FIFA 18, gamers are certainly going to miss him. Previously he has been one of the most popular picks as far as the Ultimate Team is concerned. And had he been present in FIFA 18, he would have surely been an important pick for the FIFA 18 Ultimate Team which will feature Pele, Maradona, Thierry Henry, Ronaldo and Lev Yashin.
However, there is still a lot of time to go before we can come across the game. Until now we have come across the update that Cristiano Ronaldo will don the cover page of the game. For the FIFA 18 on Nintendo Switch, which is an exclusive edition, there might be a different personality (perhaps, Zlatan Ibrahimovic) on the cover. So there are lots of things which are still to be unveiled, and we need to wait for the FIFA 18 release date to arrive in order to come across all such information.
