    It's been nearly five years since a console football game last released that didn't carry with it NFL and NFLPA licensing. Backbreaker in 2010 followed All Pro Football 2K8 from 2007 and neither received a sequel.

Today the game joined NBA Live 15 and EA Sports UFC as the most recent sports titles to be offered as part of the subscription service.
