EA previously announced that the new EA Sports Ignite Engine will work on Madden 25, EA Sports UFC, NBA Live 14 and FIFA 14 but we heard no news on whether NHL will receive the next generation treatment or not. We asked and they have responded back. Ritu Sidhu, a member of the EA Sports Communications team has informed us that “NHL 14 will not be available for Xbox One or PlayStation 4 this year” and instead EA Sports will be “laser-focused on delivering the greatest hockey experience to-date on the Xbox 360 and PS3, grounded in the speed, skill, and aggression of the sport.”
However, there is some hope for hockey fans as “[they] look forward to developing a best-in-class hockey experience for next-gen platforms in the future.”
