Although the Team of the Season squad news is grabbing everyone’s attentions at the moment, it won’t be long until fans are drooling over FIFA 18.
Football game rivals at Konami have already revealed PES 2018 along with several ways in which the game will look to better the FIFA 18 offering.
But for now, EA Sports has remained tightlipped on FIFA 18, but we would expect to hear something in the coming days and weeks leading up to EA’s E3 show, EA Play.
That said, fans of the game were recently shown a potential FIFA 18 “Leak” according to The Daily Mirror who first reported the news.
This video featured 24-year-old Manchester United ace, Paul Pogba, replacing Borussia Dortmund attacking midfielder Marco Reus as the game’s cover star.
However, this FIFA 18 clip, unfortunately, turned out to be a big fat fake and was actually concept art designed by Twitter user @JamescDZN.
It’s still fun to look at though, teasing a potential new menu interface, a revamped Alex Hunter Journey mode and the addition of FIFA Street, a fan favourite that’s been requested for several years, but in all likelihood won’t return to FIFA 18.
