EA didn’t care about FIFA, thought it will be a total disaster
Have you ever thought how the first FIFA game appeared? If you did or not, you are now going to find out now. The first game, released back in 1993, was developed by a small team that didn’t expect for the game to sell a single copy of the game.
“They didn’t think we were going to sell a single copy of this. They thought it would be a complete disaster.” said Marc Aubanel, FIFA International Soccer Assistant Producer.
Apparently, the game that everyone thought will be a disaster managed to be the biggest video game franchise in the world, how ironic. The initial team is now backed by hundreds more people with the support of the new technology.
EA Games has kept the tradition to release a brand new FIFA once every year, and they always had insane amounts of sales.
