Career Mode is one of the most loved parts in FIFA – but it’s largely fallen by the wayside of late as EA channels most of its focus into Ultimate Team.
After a stunning reveal of Interactive Transfer Negotiations in FIFA 18, many fans were disappointed after FIFA 19’s Career Mode was pretty much a carbon copy – albeit with Champions League integration.
So, will FIFA 20’s Career Mode suffer the same fate? It doesn’t appear it will. Speaking to Gamespot last year, FIFA lead gameplay producer, Sam Rivera, revealed the developer is listening to the community. Not only that, but there are internal discussions to see what can be added.
“In terms of Career Mode, we decided to make sure the experience with the Champions League was 100% authentic,” Rivera told GameSpot at Gamescom 2018. “When it’s Champions League day, everything changes–[there’s a] reskin. That was our highest priority.
“But we are listening to our fans. They’ve been requesting more stuff, bigger stuff, in terms of Career Mode [and] in terms of Pro Clubs. There’s discussions right now to see what can be added in the future.”
He added: “We know it’s a very passionate community. At the moment, that’s all we’re announcing for those modes. We are actively having conversations, listening to [the community] to see what else we can bring to those modes.”
EA proved last month they are taking community feedback into account.
Earlier this month, EA revealed they were bringing a FIFA-Street inspired mode to the FIFA 20, called Volta Football. This was a result of mounting pressure from the community to bring back the much-loved ‘Street’ series.
Meaningful changes to Career Mode, then, suddenly don’t seem beyond the realms of possibility.
