Report: Dutch Commentator Slips That FIFA Has The Champions League License

Last month Konami announced that it was not going to renew its deal with UEFA for the Champions League and Europa League licenses. Naturally, everyone's assumption was that rival EA Sports was going to jump on the tournament licenses involving top European clubs. Now a Dutch commentator who does work for FIFA may have slipped that the licenses have been added to FIFA 19.

In a TV interview, Dutch football commentator Evert ten Napel, who apparently has done voice work for the FIFA series for many years, said he's working on FIFA 19 right now and that it includes the Champions League and Europa licenses.

EA is expected to announce the deal at E3 next month. I've reached out to EA for comment on the matter, and will update this story if the company has anything substantial to say.

Hidden Puzzle In Destiny 2 Leads Players To Real Treasure

Members of a subreddit group banded together recently to uncover one of Destiny 2's most intriguing secrets in the recent Warmind expansion. Their collective effort began with deciphering one of the game's hidden puzzles, which then led them to a real-life treasure cache.

The treasure, which contains a replica of Warmind's Valkyrie and gold coins, was found in upstate New York after the group solved a cipher that gave them a secret message. Redditor Randomiser posted on the subreddit last night, saying he had figured it out. The message said:

Report: Eidos Montreal Studio Head Says Deus Ex Is

Following the release of Deux Ex: Mankind Divided, which received lukewarm reviews and wasn't as big a hit as Eidos Montreal anticipated, many wondered about the future of the series. It looked even more uncertain as Square Enix announced shortly after that the franchise was going on hiatus, so that the publisher could focus on other projects.

However, in a recent interview with PCGamesN, Eidos Montreal studio head David Anfossi finally cleared the air. He says that Eidos Montreal has no intentions of abandoning the Deus Ex series any time soon. "Deus Ex is not dead, I can confirm that," he told PCGamesN.
