Cristiano Ronaldo May Leave Real Madrid Before FIFA 18 Releases

Jun 19,2017


Revently there has been an rumor saying that Cristiano Ronaldo might be leaving Real Madrid, which brings a bit of problem for EA Sports as he has been added into the game as a Real Madrid player. If he changes, then it ull be a headache to replave everything about him with whoever he joins.

Cristiano Ronaldo has been a Real Madrid player for eight years since 2009, and now he wants to change, before the release date of FIFA 18, with the risk of wasting a lot of coding and modeling work. Ronaldo is also the star marketing player of the game, even being put on the first trailer (wearing the Real Madrid uniform).

If the rumors are true, Ronaldo will be leaving Real Madrid due to allegations of tax fraud, and if he does decids to leave, then the process is irreversible. If these allegations are true, EA Sports will not only have a modeling and coding nightmare in its hands, but also in general, EA will have to pull every bit of marketing that shows Ronaldo.

Ronaldo also plays a certain role in the game's “The Journey” story mode. While the players Alex Hunter can interact with depend on what team he joins, joining Real Madrid and talking to a player who is no longer belong to the team would be rather immersion-breaking.

FIFA 18 is one of the highlights that EA focused the most heavily on at the E3 conference last week, along with the Star Wars: Battlefront 2. Since FIFA is so huge covered in Europe and other soccer-crazy areas of the world, the game is likely to be bought by a lot of people.

We will just need to wait to see if the rumors about Cristiano Ronaldo leaving Real Madrid are true. If they are, hopefully EA can re-complete all of the required assets to get him out of the game and put someone else in within a few months before the release of the game.

However, no matter who joins the game, it is no wonder that you can play FIFA 18 gameplay just a fe months later, and you can still buy FIFA 18 Coins on, no any changes here!
