EA communications boss Steve Frost has told Gamasutra that the newly announced UEFA Euro 2012 expansion for FIFA 12 has been released as an expansion due to the continued popularity of EA’s FIFA title.
Speaking to the site, Frost said, “we felt this was the best way to extend that experience and deliver fresh new content to our fans.
“We expect footy fans will want the opportunity to play UEFA Euro 2012 and experience what it takes to win the tournament under the same conditions their favourite nation will face in the weeks ahead.
“We expect that some fans who may not have FIFA 12 will want to play Euro 2012 and therefore purchase both, but the bigger opportunity for us is to offer our loyal and passionate FIFA fans new content.”
UEFA Euro 2012 releases on April 24 for PSN, Xbox LIVE and PC.
