In a matter of terrible or perfect timing, Electronic Arts announced today that it will debut the first news on FIFA 16 tomorrow.
This comes on the same day that the U.S. Department of Justice indicted 14 FIFA officials on a variety of charges, including money laundering, racketeering, and wire fraud. U.S. law enforcement says that this is only the beginning of a widespread investigation of FIFA. This could either be great timing for hype or the worst marketing decision in a long time.
Despite this tremendous blow to the core soccer organization the game is based on, EA Sports is rolling ahead with plans to promote the game. This from the official EA Sports twitter account:
