Former Sky Sports presenter and co-commentator Andy Gray, who was sacked this week after another damning video was leaked, is synonymous for many soccer fans with the FIFA video game series from Electronic Arts (NASDAQ: ERTS).
Gray, for many years, has been the featured English co-commentator used on the successful soccer game. He has appeared as co-commentator for FIFA 97, FIFA 02 and FIFA 06 through 11. So the question is whether EA will decide to include him in the FIFA 12 game scheduled for release this autumn.
“We will not be making any announcements regarding our in-game commentators for FIFA at this time,” said an EA spokesperson. “Those announcements will be made later this year.”
So Electronic Arts is not saying much at this time. My guess is that he won’t be included otherwise people may begin boycotting the FIFA series if his name or voice is attached to the successful game franchise.
