    In a not-so-surprising reveal, the next entry in the FIFA series has just been named. FIFA 17 was announced by EA, with a release date set for September 27 in North America and globally on September 29. As with the standard of EA releases, this title will appear on both EA Access and Origin Access allowing players to play the game early, though the exact details have not been released yet. While most of the details haven't been announced, one major change players will be seeing is a shift in game engines.

    Many players will be happy to know that FIFA 17 will be making the conversion to Frostbite, which is the same engine that has been used in other recent EA franchises such as Battlefield, Battlefront, Dragon Age, and Need for Speed. Past FIFA titles have made use of the Ignite engine, as is the case with many of the EA Sports series titles. With FIFA's transition to the Frostbite Engine, this furthers EA's progress in shifting all of its games to Frostbite.

    "Frostbite unlocks a whole new world of possibilities for the FIFA franchise and its fans," said executive producer David Rutter. "We have never been as excited as we are today about the future of football and the experiences we are going to deliver in FIFA 17."

    While EA didn't give any specifics as to what Frostbite will bring to the game, they did promise that "Frostbite delivers authentic, true-to-life action, takes players to new football worlds, and introduces fans to characters full of depth and emotion."

    While a few more details were released such as contributions from a few real-life football players such as James Rodriguez and Eden Hazard, the announcement has remained rather vague in terms of game specifics. More information should become available during EA's pre-E3 event, EA Play, on June 12 at 1 PM PT/5PM EST.

    FIFA 17 will be launching on the PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3, and PC, with Super Deluxe editions being made available at launch. With former deluxe editions including Ultimate Team bonuses, such as Team of the Week loan players and gold packs, the same can be expected for the Super Deluxe edition this year.

    This is how they made the game, CTRL + C FIFA 16 source code and then CTRL + V into FIFA 17 source code.
