Those of you who are not a fan of the constant connectivity that FIFA 13 brought to the table are not going to like this news. FIFA lead producer David Rutter has hinted that FIFA 14 will introduce even more ways to connect players.

When asked by What Culture (via CVG) if FIFA is heading down a more connected path, Rutter replied, “I’d argue we’re already there. For someone with a connected console you’re completely connected with the EA Sports Football Club component of the game now. Everything you do in the game counts towards your level, you can see what your mates have been up to.

“We’re delivering data updates on professional players and injecting challenges from real matches. You can download an App to keep track of your EASFC stuff, and manage your Ultimate Team too from the bus or workplace. You’re right – it’ll get even more like this in the next few years.”

However, he added that this new connectivity will not be added at the expense of the single-player experience. “Narrative has played a big part over the last year or two in career mode. It’s something we’re keen to push forward as well.

“Seriously, there are a ton of people who still enjoy single player experiences. Career mode in particular remains a massive mode in FIFA and remains a big focus for us. I think this is because it’s an excellent experience, and also because it’s sometimes a major hassle hooking up with your mates online to play head to head or the people online are quitting/cheating/beating you up. We’re working on that too.”
