EA has announced that the PC version of FIFA 14 won't use the new game engine...

EA has been very keen to talk about its new Ignite game engine, which is set to power the majority of its sporting titles on next gen, and the tech does look very promising. However, PC owners looking forward to a next gen FIFA may miss out on this advancement, at least for now.

Talking to Polygon, EA Sports exec, Andrew Wilson, stated that the majority of FIFA fans' gaming PCs out in the marketplace are not able to cope with the new engine.

"Even though there were some PCs on the marketplace that could run that engine, the lion's share of PCs on the marketplace could not,” he said.

"The majority of the gamer base that was playing the game on PC did not have a PC spec that would work with that."

He promised that, once PC specifications were higher as standard an Ignite version of FIFA for the PC would be released, but it would appear that now isn't the time, and PC owners will have to make do with a stripped down version of the footy title.

FIFA 14 will be released on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC on September 27, with Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions arriving later in the year.
