Players who pick up the current-gen versions of FIFA 14 may be able to transfer their data – potentially including Ultimate Team players and XP – to the PS4 and Xbox One versions.
The game's executive producer David Rutter teased the possibility of current to next-gen data transfer during an interview with VideoGamer.com, telling us that, "Whilst I can't talk about it right now, I'm sure there'll be some exciting news in the coming months."
Data transfer between the two versions would be a major selling point to early FIFA adopters also looking to pick up a next-gen console.
FIFA 14 launches on current-gen platforms this September, with PS4 and Xbox One versions due to launch alongside the two consoles in November.
EA has already teased the possibility of current to next-gen data transfer in one of its other cross-gen titles.
Over the weekend, MP1st reported that DICE is also considering the option to transfer data between the current and next-gen versions of Battlefield 4.
An EA Sports representative told VideoGamer.com that it had nothing to add when asked for additional information.
