A new addition to the FIFA football game franchise it set to arrive later this year, but when is it coming to the Mac? We take a look at the FIFA 16 for Mac release date rumours to find out whether FIFA 16 will ever come to Mac OS X.
FIFA 16 for Mac release date rumours
FIFA is the most successful football game around, so it’s no surprise that each year the release of the new version of the game is a highly-anticipated event. We already know that FIFA 16 is coming out for PC, PS4, PS3, Xbox 360 and Xbox One on 25 September 2015, and it’s possible that EA might port the game to iOS devices later, but is FIFA 16 coming out for Mac?
Unfortunately, that’s still a question we can’t answer. It’s been several years since FIFA was released for Mac OS. Only FIFA 12 and FIFA 13 are available on the platform, and those aren’t even available through the
EA Origin Store (where you’ll find PC downloads only for FIFA) or through the Mac App Store.
Many previous FIFA games are available for iPad and iPhone, though, including
FIFA 15 Ultimate Team, right back to
FIFA 10, so it seems likely that the game will arrive on iPad and iPhone in some form shortly after the PC and console release in September.
How to play FIFA on a Mac
