The inevitable licensed Euro 2012 title from EA Sports will be a digital-only release, MCV can reveal.
Furthermore, the game will skip a stand-alone release entirely and instead be made available as a DLC expansion for existing title FIFA 12.
Called EA Sports UEFA Euro 2012, the download includes all 53 UEFA member national teams and the eight official stadiums of the tournament.
As well as allowing users to play out the tournament, it will also offer Expedition Mode, which allows for the building and management of a custom national squad.
FIFA Virtual Pro mode will also make a return, as do the real-world themed Challenges and online multiplayer.
With FIFA 12 still selling strong, FIFA Street having fun near the top of the charts and an inevitable release of FIFA 13 at the end of September, EA likely felt that three boxed EA releases in a year is perhaps pushing the franchise and the established retail model too far.
