Hey footie fans, it's been a rough week for you, but if you're a 3DS or PS Vita owner then it's about to get worse.

Yesterday, EA announced that FIFA 16 would be the first title in the series to have women teams. That's not the bad bit, by the way, that's very good.

Afterwards, we reached out to EA to find out if we can expect FIFA 16 on handhelds and mobile. The response won't please you.

"With regards to FIFA 16 there isn't a Vita or 3DS version," an EA representative told us.

"We don't have any further detail on the mobile version but will be sure to share with you when we hear more."

There was both a 3DS and PS Vita version of last year's FIFA 15. So this means that EA has made the decision to avoid releasing the series on those two handhelds starting this year.

Whether we can expect future iterations of the series on 3DS or PS Vita seems unlikely. So, perhaps FIFA 15 is to be the last FIFA game on 3DS and PS Vita. Looks that way.

We'll just have to hope that FIFA 16 does make its way to mobile, then.
