EA announced FIFA 17 The Journey was played at a rate of more than 178,000 matches per hour from September 24, 2016 to October 24, 2016 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC, equating to 124 million matches in that month, with Alex Hunter scoring more than 164 million goals over the course of those matches by players in more than 180 countries.
The Journey inspires fans to live their story on and off the pitch as Alex Hunter, the Premier League’s next rising star. Alex’s story is impacted by performance in matches and decisions made by fans off of the pitch, like selecting which of the twenty Premier League clubs Alex signs with to begin his professional career. With a record 20 League titles, Manchester United has been the fan-favorite with 18% of players selecting the Red Devils. Liverpool FC (11%), Leicester City Football Club (11%), Arsenal (10%), and West Ham United (8%) round out the top five. No matter the club, there’s been no shortage of silverware for Alex Hunter, with fans winning more than 560,000 Premier League titles and more than 1 million FA Cup titles.
