As we sort out which game franchises will and won’t be developed for the next gen console, EA Sports’ Fight Night will be put on hold for now.
EA Sports head Andrew Wilson told IGN: “Right now, a great portion of the core of the Fight Night team are actually the team that are building UFC.” In a smart move, EA Sports claimed the UFC rights from THQ last year, due to the growing success of mixed martial arts across the globe.
But will it return? “Do I see a future for Fight Night?” Wilson asked. “You know, sure. But right now, UFC is where our fighting focus is.”
