EA Sports will not create NCAA football game next year

After the NCAA ended their relationship with EA Sports in the midst of a lawsuit surrounding player likeness and an assortment of other issues, there was still some hope that the video game company would still be able to move forward with a new game next year that would still use college licensing without any mention of the NCAA.

As it turns out, EA Sports has had a change of heart and they have decided not to proceed with the NCAA franchise for next year.

From Bloomsberg News sports reporter Scott Soshnick:

This won’t make the fans of the NCAA Football series very happy, but it is something that EA Sports had to do to avoid any additional headaches.

The good news is that we will still have Madden, which is a cleaner version of the same football game, so we shouldn’t be too upset that there will be one less game to spend $60 or $70 on next year.
