EA Sports Secures Ten More Years Of Making UFC Games

The next generation of gaming consoles is incoming quickly with the incoming release of the Xbox One X and PS5. Fans can rest assured however, that no matter the new generation of consoles, UFC video games will still be released by EA Sports.

Love them or hate them, the EA UFC games have been the only source of MMA video games over the last six years. The release of their first game aligned fairly well with the releases of the PS4 and Xbox One, and they have consistently released subsequent editions on a roughly bi-yearly basis. Most recently UFC 4 was released, with less than thrilling reviews to start, but a seemingly increased support after some updates.
