In an interview with News10 Game Guys Barry White during the 2011 E3 Expo, FIFA 12's Lead Line Producer David Rutter said on-camera that the game will feature most -- but not all -- Major League Soccer teams. A statement given to News10 by EA Sports on Tuesday says that Rutter was incorrect.
"Our producer David Rutter must have had an off-day at E3 because he says that we will have "most" MLS teams in FIFA 12. This is actually incorrect. EA Sports has the MLS license and all MLS teams will be featured in FIFA 12, just as all teams were available to play with in FIFA 11," the company explained in the statement.
While MLS fans can be expected to give a sigh of relief to this clarification, it seems Rutter was correct about the game lacking the CONCACAF Gold Cup a later statement to News10 from EA Sports briefly explained:
"We do not have CONCACAF and the Gold Cup as a playable tournament in FIFA."
FIFA 12's expected release date for North America is September 27th. The game will be coming out on the PlayStation 2, PS3, PSP, PS Vita, the Nintendo Wii and 3DS, Xbox 360, PC, iOS, and Xperia Play.
