EA Sports 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil, the official video game of football's biggest event, will not be coming to PC or next-gen platforms.

Publisher EA said the game would launch "exclusively on PS3 and Xbox 360" on April 17th in the UK and Europe.

"Why isn't our World Cup game on Xbox One/PS4? We are making the best game we can for our largest audience, which is still on 360 & PS3," it said in a statement.

"For fans on Xbox One/PS4, FIFA14 will have a range of World Cup content and tournaments within FIFA Ultimate Team. More news closer to the tournament."

Customers who pre-order the game can receive exclusive content including new celebrations, historic Adidas game balls and more.

2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil boasts 203 national teams, 7,469 players, 19 officially licensed managers and 21 new stadiums including all 12 authentic stadiums from Brazil. There are also 'Live City' events around the globe. For example, when a player scores a goal with England they see fans react live from the centre of London.

Fans can get tournament updates from EA SPORTS Talk Radio, featuring Ian Darke and Andy Goldstein, or Roger Bennett and Michael Davies, with over 50 hours of recorded content to stay up to date on all the action. Then there's 'Road to Rio de Janeiro' - a new mode that lets players play their way across a map of Brazil’s 12 host cities in licensed and authentic stadiums.

There is currently no word on a PC version of the game. PCR has contacted EA Sports for clarification.

UPDATE (February 6th, 4.30pm): EA Sports has confirmed to PCR that there will be no PC version of the game.
