As expected, marketing for FIFA 18 has shifted from Xbox to PS4.

FIFA Content Manager Jon Cole said:

This year, for the first time, we can also announce that some of the most iconic footballers in the history of the game are coming to FIFA Ultimate Team on PS4, headlined by one of the players I idolised growing up: Ronaldo Nazario. The legendary Brazilian was one of the most gifted, prolific, explosive and dynamic strikers to ever play the game, and this year you’ll be able to pair him and Cristiano Ronaldo to terrify opposition defenders in FUT.

The full FIFA 18 reveal will happen on Saturday, June 10 at EA Play.
