Debacle! FIFA12 Will Not Feature Every MLS Club



This is sure to bring out the pitchforks and torches from the FIFA faithful: this year's version of the finest footie game around will only feature a partial selection of MLS clubs. To say this is disappointing is an understatement; how else can Red Bull New York win the league if not for a prolonged campaign of late-night button mashing on my couch. For reals y'all, this is a straight-up outrage.

So anyone want to guess which MLS clubs will not be included in FIFA12 if this is true? I've no idea but I bet you LA, NY, Seattle, Vancouver, Portland and maybe RSL and SKC are in. After that it's a crapshoot.

WELP.
Unless I get a copy for free as a gift this year, I'll be avoiding this year's incarnation.

See you in FIFA'13.

Congratulations EA for the first time in 7 years I will NOT be buying the new FIFA game, hope you're happy, I'm not.

Is it possible they meant that Montreal would not yet be included?

I would assume it's Portland left out. They're usually a year behind on expansion teams.

that's so bizarre in this day and age. flashbacks to the o.g. tecmo bowl.

I will not be buying FIFA12 then. The only good reason to get another copy was the new MLS teams every year.

How are you going to include NEW leagues from the Middle-East and South-America while excluding clubs previously used?

Especially in THE largest gaming market in the world.

Puzzled; I am.
Disgusted;I feel.
Not buying, surely.

There seems to be a bit of confusion around FIFA 12 and MLS. To clarify: All teams featured in this year's MLS season WILL be in the game.

@gary, i feel like that's ea sports admitting that it's only going to be the mls teams from this year, that means no timbers...

@Michael... No, what that means is any team playing in the REAL Major League Soccer for 2011 will feature in FIFA12. Not saying they're repeating squads from FIFA11.

Only Montreal won't feature in FIFA12

Lol weird. I'm originally from Sacramento, and that's our ABC local news.

Montreal will not be in the game. Nothing new here. In FIFA 10, they didn't have the Union, and in FIFA 11 they don't have the Timbers (although they have a Whitecaps because of some special deal between them and EA, they're listed under "Rest of the World")
