EA Sports Is Finally Bringing Back Its College Football Game

After years of not having a new installment of EA Sports College Football, ESPN reported on the venue returning to having everyone's favorite video game.

It has been a long time since any news of a new college football video game was announced.

"We love the energy, tradition and pageantry of college football and I am beyond thrilled to say we are back in development".

EA Sports' announcement comes with potential name, image and likeness policy reform on the horizon with both the NCAA, state legislatures and Congress. It's not yet clear whether the evolving rules will allow for the kind of group licensing arrangements that would be needed for EA Sports to negotiate with athletes to use their names in the game. "So, "EA Sports College Football" we just felt is the right name for the product for not only now but also as we move forward". "That won't be a problem for us".

To make the game happen, EA Sports partnered with collegiate licensing company CLC to make sure it had the FBS schools, traditions, uniforms and playbooks - among other things - ready to go for the game.

No details have been released on the next EA Sports College Football title, but you'd assume that the game will be a summer release, alongside the launch of Madden NFL 22 later in the year.

They are considering putting together their oil companies and work to get back what they have lost due to the COVID-19 pandemic. General Motors last week said it would aim to stop selling vehicles powered by gasoline and diesel, which rely on oil, by 2035.

That compensation structure for NCAA athletes will be different under this iteration of the EA Sports game.

With the news that college football will be coming back to gaming consoles, fans are already anxious to hear about what is in store for the game.

There is not a date on when the game will return, but it won't be in 2021, ESPN reported. EA Sports is continuing to watch those developments closely, according to a news release.

FYI - the beloved series started off as "Bill Walsh Football" in 1994 and 1995. before taking on the College Football/NCAA Football name from 1996-2014. The company is experimenting with things, but Holt said looking at what constitutes a football career and giving the fans the most authentic experience is essential.
