Rumor: FIFA 14 free with every Xbox One in Europe

Deal thought to have cost Microsoft "further millions in budget."

FIFA 14 will come free with every Xbox One in Europe, “two senior games industry sources” have told MCV.

Meanwhile, a “source with knowledge of the deal” has told CVG similar, saying a “major third-party title” will come included with the system. The title of the game is not mentioned, though it it said to be a “major” holiday release. The deal is thought to have cost Microsoft “further millions in budget.”

Different from the MCV story, the CVG story claims the game is a “unique Xbox One exclusive” being saved for a Gamescom announcement.

Microsoft previously said it had an announcement around “Europe’s biggest game franchise” planned for Gamescom, and FIFA 14 being included with every system seems well in line with that.

Even so, mark this as a rumor for now.
