Creative director of EA Sports UFC, Brian Hayes, held an AMA on Reddit over the weekend that surfaced some new details about the upcoming launch of the franchise. Though initially the company released info on a lot of features very early in the process (last summer at E3) there hasn’t been much since outside of screenshots to reveal fighters included on the roster. Even the release date remains unannounced.
The game appears to be headed towards a June release date rather than the originally targeted May. If EA keeps to “spring” that would mean June 3, 10, and 17 are the possible dates. The first look at extended gameplay footage may be coming in a few weeks, there won’t be fights outside of the respective divisions, women won’t be able to fight against men, there is no mode that features Pride, and there is the possibility of a PC version down the line.
