Bad news we’re afraid guys…The FIFA 14 Ultimate Team World Cup update has been delayed.
The free update which we detailed a couple of days ago was to bring the full World Cup carnival to FIFA 14 on all formats but EA have just announced that it has been delayed….with no new ETA detailed and only the following to say:
To ensure the best possible experience, we have decided to delay the launch of FIFA 14 Ultimate Team: World Cup (PC/PS3/PS4/360/XB1) and the World Cup Kick-Off mode (XB1/PS4).
Knowing that our players have been so excited for these new modes made it a tough decision. However, as we progressed through final testing we encountered unforeseen issues that would affect all users who downloaded the update, so it’s important to address them first before release.
Our team is currently working hard to have the update ready to release in the coming days.
On Thursday evening (EU time) we will keep you updated on our progress. Be sure to follow @EASPORTSFIFA for further updates on FUT World Cup and World Cup Kick-Off.
It’s a bit of a shame because we know many who were looking forward to the update.
We’ll keep you informed as to any further progress, as and when things develop.
Update: EA are hoping to have the World Cup update up and running some time tomorrow (Friday 30th May 2014).
They have had the following to say:
Hello, FIFA fans.
Our team is making good progress on the FUT World Cup & World Cup Kick Off update for FIFA 14. We’re doing everything we can to launch it tomorrow, with World Cup Kick Off likely launching earlier in the day.
Be sure to keep an eye on @EASPORTSFIFA and we’ll provide another status update on FUT World Cup tomorrow by 7pm UK time.
The FIFA Team
