Unfortunately, EA SPORTS have today announced the loss of the brazilian clubs license in FIFA 15.
In an open statement, EA SPORTS confirmed the news, stating:
Over the past several weeks, we have been revealing exciting details and announcing all the great new features coming up for FIFA 15. But it’s equally important that we keep you informed of other changes to the game from FIFA 14, including details on the leagues and players you play with across EA SPORTS FIFA titles.
Today, we want to inform you that due to some changes in the ways players are licensed in Brazil domestic leagues, we were unable to reach an agreement with the Brazilian rights holders for their inclusion in FIFA 15. While this is unfortunate news for many of our fans, we were able to retain the Brazil National Team in FIFA 15 as well as the Brazilian stars that play in other top leagues around the world. Thanks for your understanding as we continue to keep the lines of communication open with the Brazilian rights holders.
We have some amazing news coming about leagues and licenses as we approach Gamescom on August 13, so stay tuned for much more.
