FIFA 14 for Xbox One and PS4 is the best FIFA game EA Sports has ever made, which in the past hasn't always been the case when jumping to the next generation, producer Nick Channon told MCV.
"What we have right now with FIFA 14 is a great base, a fantastic game and moving forward it is a huge opportunity," explained Channon.
"When you are working with new technology you learn more about it as you go – you have more power, more memory and these are the things you can play with. It's about maintaining that philosophy of deep innovation in gameplay. For me the opportunities are huge. It's really exciting."
The development team has taken to the next generation so well that Channon is confident FIFA 14 for Xbox One and PS4 will be the best FIFA yet.
"This is the best FIFA we have ever made," said Channon. "We wanted to make a next-gen game that is fully featured, which has not always been the case, and that has significant innovation in gameplay and presentation.
"The feeling when you play the game is entirely new. We've been very fortunate in our success with FIFA and we are translating that to a new platform."
FIFA 14 will be available November 22 for Xbox One and November 29 for PS4.
What we've seen of FIFA 14 on next-gen has been positive, but we'll have to wait until we've spent more time with the final game before we can say if Channon is correct.
