EA's long-running partnership with the football body could potentially end next year…
During its latest financial results call on Wednesday (transcribed by VGC), Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick was asked about the EA-FIFA dispute and if the 2K Sports parent would be interested in expanding its football game output, should the license become available.
Currently, Take-Two’s only soccer series is mobile management game Top Eleven, which it acquired along with developer Nordeus this summer.
“We are so thrilled to have Nordeus in the Take-Two family,” Zelnick replied. “They’re just crushing it and Top Eleven is a great, beloved title. I just couldn’t be happier to be in the soccer manager business through Top Eleven with the Nordeus team.
He added: “That’s a big step forward for us… we haven’t been in that sport before. And erm, I think I’ll leave it at that today.”
