EA Sports Ignite engine does not support PCs

EA Sports' upcoming Ignite engine that will power the company's next-generation titles will not support the PC nor the Wii U. Executive vice-president Andrew Wilson told the press that the PC is excluded because "most players don't have computers that could run it". Wilson points out that they received many complaints from gamers unable to play FIFA 11 back in 2010 due to lack of an adequate computer configuration, and adds that Ignite has been built for the closed Xbox One and PS4 hardware and not the open hardware of an average PC. However, he concedes that with some adjustments, Ignite might make the jump to the PC in the future.
According to Wilson, the release of FIFA 11 back in 2010 resulted in many players being unable to play the game because they did not have an adequately powerful computer at the time and the company feels this would be repeated if Ignite-powered titles were released on the PC today.

'Even though there were some PCs on the marketplace that could run that engine, the lion's share of PCs on the marketplace could not,' Wilson told Polygon. 'And the majority of the gamer base that was playing the game on PC did not have a PC spec that would work with that.'
