Future EA Sports Games To Require

Today, EA Sports announced that the Fight Night development team will created the next UFC videogame. The UFC development team will be lead by Team and Action Sports General Manager Dean Richards (Fight Night, NHL, SSX) and Creative Director Brian Hayes.

We originally learned that EA would be creating UFC games at E3, but these are the first concrete details on EA's plans.

“When we found out that EA and the UFC would be working together, the team was excited," Hayes said. "Most of the team didn’t even know about it until the announcement at E3. We were all watching it together and when Andrew Wilson and Dana White took the stage, everybody starting cheering. It was great.”

According to EA, here's are the top three things the company brings to the table:

1. The Fight Night team has won some big-time awards since the release of Fight Night Round 3 including 11 ‘Best Sports/Fighting Game of the Year’ Awards

2. The Fight Night team is one that is known for innovation within the genre and the industry:

3. Fight Night Round 3 was a launch title for the X360 and showed the world what a next-gen sports game was capable of.  The lead gameplay designer from FNR3 is heading up gameplay design for EA SPORTS UFC.
