The Ignite engine is currently being used to make FIFA 14, Madden NFL 25, NBA Live 14 and EA Sports UFC for Xbox One and PS4.

Andrew Wilson, executive vice president of EA Sports, told Polygon that the average hardware specifications of PCs used by those who would buy the company's sports titles aren't capable of playing games on par with the next-gen console versions.

Wilson said Ignite has been designed around Xbox One and PS4 components as well as the specific architecture of those systems, "how the CPU, GPU and RAM work together in concert in that type of environment".

He added: "So could I see the potential for EA Sports Ignite to make it to PC in the future? Yes, I think it's possible, but a couple of things need to happen.

As well as a rise in the average hardware specifications of PCs used to play EA Sports' games, "there needs to be some adjustment in terms of how EA Sports Ignite works to facilitate the open nature of PC architecture, rather than the closed nature of console architecture."

During Microsoft's E3 press conference in early June, Wilson said next-gen FIFA, Madden, NBA and UFC games will "launch in the next twelve months".
