Women Soccer Players, Including Alex Morgan, To Feature On FIFA 16
Sure, there is a NBA 2K15 game with a male all-star on the cover. And yes, there is a WNBA 2K15 game with a female on the cover. But there has never been a 2K game with both genders gracing the same cover. It’s even worse for the FIFA line, which doesn’t even have a woman’s league version, let alone a cover – until now.
