In a massive turn of an event – it is still unsure whether it is a glitch or a deliberate attempt – EA Sports have cropped Jammu and Kashmir from the Indian map in their upcoming FIFA 18 game. FIFA 18, which is expected to hit the ground running for all the right reasons, will be launched on September 29, but it seems like the Electronic Arts’ officials need to check into this hitch before running into the market; or maybe not…
The flaw was spotted by an anonymous user while trying his hands on the early released version. Addressing the same, the user decided to launch a petition to force EA to look into the glitch and find a possible solution before the game hits the market. Here is how you can sign the petition. So far, 463 users have shown their support.
Electronic Arts have introduced a new Squad Battle mode in the FIFA 18 which allow its users to build the best possible squad – available for the selection – but of course, you need to dig through your pocket for that. Also, the game allows its user to play against different AI Ultimate Teams and one user spotted the aforementioned mishap.
It now remains to be seen whether the EA Sports officials will take an action or not, but one thing is for sure; they might have tapped the wrong nerve here. Well, in case you don’t know, this isn’t the first time a big organization, mistakenly or not, have omitted Jammu and Kashmir from the Indian Map. Back when Mark Zuckerberg launched his internet.org venture, Jammu and Kashmir was nowhere to be seen on the Indian map and the 33-year-old received a lot of reprisal.
