FIFA 18 is set to release this September and a new rumor is currently making the round about the number of playable leagues in the FIFA 18 The Journey mode. This is the story mode featured in FIFA 18 and the leak was from an official event held in Brazil where a user managed to capture an off-screen shot from the game’s The Journey menu which also revealed 6 playable leagues: Brazil, England, USA, Germany, France, and Spain.
While this doesn’t necessarily confirm that they are indeed in the final game, reddit user rodhas also attended the same event and he clarified that this doesn’t mean that Brazilian league, which wasn’t included in FIFA 17, will be playable in FIFA 18.
I was at this event today and they specifically mentioned that the Brazil part is just for the preseason. No Brazilian league confirmed yet.
While there is no official confirmation about the amount of playable premier leagues in the upcoming FIFA, there is always the chance that EA adds more leagues in the final game so this could turn out to be true after all. For now, you need to take this rumor with a grain of salt.
FIFA 18 will be released on September 29th for the PS4, Xbox One, PC and Nintendo Switch.
