After seven years of being gone, Electronic Arts has confirmed the return of college football games. Not much information is known at the moment, except that they’re partnering with the CLC — the licensing company charged with managing the college circuit’s trademarks — and have over one hundred different college teams confirmed so far. Currently, actual student athlete likenesses will not be included in the planned game.
“We’ve heard from the millions of passionate fans requesting the return of college football video games,” EA Sports executive vice president and general manager Cam Weber said in a statement. “We love the energy, tradition and pageantry of college football and I am beyond thrilled to say we are back in development. We have a lot of really exciting work ahead of us, and a great team that is eager to bring a new game to players in the next couple of years.”
“We’re very excited to collaborate with EA Sports to bring back the college football franchise, one of the most popular collegiate licensed products in our history,” added CLC CEO Cory Moss. “The college football video game connects passionate fans to college brands and introduces new fans to the storied traditions, excitement, and game day experience that make college football unique.”
EA Sports promises more information in the coming years, meaning it could be a while for long time fans waiting to learn anything else new.
