Some great news on the 2021 front. EA Sports has announced they are bringing back the NCAA football Game.
EA has partnered with the Collegiate Licensing Company (CLC) on “the expected return of college football to EA Sports.” Per EA, the deal will allow EA Sports to become the exclusive developer of simulation college football video game experiences.
EA said the new franchise will include the rights to more than 100 colleges and feature the logos, stadiums and gameplay traditions that fans have come to know and love. Notably, the game “will not include student-athlete names, images and likenesses” but EA said it will continue to watch developments around that subject closely.
It's also worth highlighting that EA made no mention of the NCAA in its announcement. Given the language used, we're likely looking at a new franchise that won't use NCAA branding.
That said, the new game is in the beginning stages of development and thus, won’t be ready for another couple of years.
