EA has made early plans for a new Fight Night game, according to a new report.
The project has apparently turned green by EA Sports, but is still early in development and “probably several years from release”. It informs the reliable delicious Tom Henderson via VGC.
A recent email throughout the studio sent to EA Canada staff reportedly explained that the studio’s focus would remain on the upcoming EA Sports UFC 5 – despite recent hires for Fight Night. Following the release of UFC 5, the team will then pivot over to the new Fight Night project.
It’s been a decade since the last Fight Night game – 2011’s Fight Night Champion – was launched for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
Of course, that would not be the only EA effort to revive a dormant franchise. Earlier this year, the publisher confirmed plans to recreate the original Dead Space. It is expected to arrive at the end of 2022.
