FIFA 11 release date 'in coming weeks'

Online rumours are "pure speculation" says EA Sports

EA Sports has dismissed online reports that FIFA 11 will be released on September 24.

Speaking to CVG this morning, a company spokesperson pushed aside the supposed September release date and told us to expect an official calendar stamp in the near future.

The spokesperson said: "It's pure speculation and we'll be confirming the release date in the coming weeks." You can't say fairer than that.

This year's FIFA is set to include "seismic improvements," reckons EA, including improved graphics, customisable audio, "massively" improved player AI and 'footballer personality'. Read more details here.
