EA Sports has announced that their upcoming Ultimate Fighting Championship game, EA Sports UFC, will be developed by the Fight Night team within EA Canada. This shouldn’t come as much of a surprise, but apparently the developers learned about their new project at E3 2012, the same time as the rest of the world.
“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,” said Creative Director Brian Hayes.
This quote also confirms that development on EA Sports UFC just started, so it’ll probably be a long time before we step into a virtual octagon again.
