FIFA 20 has got a lot right it terms of gameplay & presentation, however Career Mode arrived with a few issues.

Fear not, because EA has listened to the community and will be fixing the much-loved mode imminently. However for those thinking it would arrive this week they may be disappointed to hear that it won't be available just yet.

To be honest, this is a good thing, as it shows EA is clearly taking its time to ensure the patch is as thorough as possible. Rushing the patch release too soon could only make the matter worse.


What's happened?

Last week, we reported about the multitude of problems FIFA 20 players were experiencing with the latest version of Career Mode.

EA’s game had been out for just a few hours, before disgruntled gamers took to social media to trend #FixCareerMode.

Career Mode fans have been waiting eagerly to hear of any updates to the popular game mode.

This sounds hopeful as it is evident EA are taking their time to ensure Career Mode will be at its best once the new patch is released.
