EA Sports has confirmed that the Fight Night development team has been tapped for the octagon to work on the next UFC videogame - a first for EA.
The development team will be led by Team and Action Sports General Manager Dean Richards (Fight Night, NHL, SSX) and Creative Director Brian Hayes.
After leading gameplay design on Fight Night Round 4 and Fight Night Champion, Hayes is now the Creative Director for the Fighting Team at EA Sports. He commented: “When we found out that EA and the UFC would be working together, the team was excited. 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.”
The UFC title from EA was first announced at this year's E3. No further details on the game are available at this time.
