To bring the UK releases in line with the rest of Europe, EA have announced they’re moving all future UK game launches to Thursdays rather than Fridays, as has been the norm for years.
As part of the announcement, a few upcoming titles have new release dates, which are as follows:
- Madden NFL 16 – August 27
- FIFA 16 – September 24
- Need for Speed – November 5
- Star Wars Battlefront – November 19
Until now, players in the UK have had to wait until Friday for new EA games to release, one day after the rest of Europe. We realised that players wanted to be able to get in the game the same time as their friends across Europe and we’re happy to make this change.
