Because, “overwhelmingly”, managerial elements are the most popular part of career mode.
This year’s edition of FIFA will focus its resources on the game’s ‘Be A Manager’ componenets. The direction was confirmed by FIFA 12’s producer, David Rutter, when asked by IncGamers whether we’d see any changes to the game’s ‘Be A Pro’ mode.
“Our big focus this year has actually been on ‘Be A Manager’,” said Rutter, “overwhelmingly, the popularity of career mode rests on the manager side of things.”
Unfortunately, Rutter wouldn’t be budged on what lays in store for ‘Be A Pro’, stating only that:
“We do have a lot of cool stuff in the Be A Pro side of things for online play but I can’t really talk about that until later this year.”
However, he did tease that improvements would be included in FIFA 12:
“For people who enjoy Be A Pro though, we have looked at it and improved a number of areas but I can’t get over-excited about it now because I can’t you tell anything yet. This year has really been about the manager side of things though.”
