EA is stepping back into the Octagon. The publisher has announced that the follow-up to 2014’s EA Sports UFC is in development.
The publisher confirmed the sequel today on Twitter, with a promise of more details coming tomorrow. Unfortunately, while we’re urged to “tune in,” specific information on where to do that isn’t available yet.
EA secured the UFC license from THQ prior to that publisher’s demise. For more on EA Sports UFC, you can read our review. EA Access members can play the original in the “vault.”

This was inevitable, though announcing this game on day when eyes are on Rise of the Tomb Raider and Fallout 4 is a curious decision. Sure, those audiences don’t overlap perfectly, but the sophomore outing for this franchise deserves a bit of the spotlight to itself.
