EA removes Shush and A-Ok celebrations from FIFA 21

For tackling toxicity in FIFA games, Electronic Arts has decided to cut two goal celebrations—Shush and A-Ok—from the upcoming FIFA 21.

If you are an avid fan of Electronic Art’s (EA) famous Football Game simulation project, the FIFA Series, you must be aware of games’ every prospect. Upon thinking about the latter, comes the part where you celebrate after scoring a goal. Yes over its Legacy, FIFA has added a ton of post-goal Celebrations where some of them literally poke the opponents and sometimes the crowd as well when you’re playing an “Away Match”

Recently the developers at EA were held by the collar by the community of the same regarding some of the game’s provocative goal celebrations which incluided, the ‘Shush’ and ‘A-OK’ actions. Players will no longer be able to use the “shushing” celebration, which did use to crow over the opposition team and add misery to their luck factors.

In a comment highlighting the same, Sam Rivera, Fifa 21’s lead gameplay producer stated,
“We were told by the community that there’s toxic behaviours in the game, and we wanted to make sure we removed them”. “So we removed some of the celebrations that people thought were not the best idea to have in the game.”

He also added, “The intention there is just to keep you playing instead of doing other things that may not be necessary in the game,”

This does show how deeply, Sam Rivera feels about the games’s fans as he did alter the above mentioned changes without any kind of hesitations.

With these changes been inculcated into the game, the above targeted gesutures will be no longer a part of the upcoming part of the simulation series, FIFA 21.

FIFA 21 is scheduled to hit the market on 6th of October on PlayStation Consoles, Xbox series and on PC as well.
