EA Sports has revealed the fifth iteration in the Fight Night series to be known as Fight Night Champion. According to IGN the roster will include 60-65 fighters, a new punch control system, and an innovative single player mode that is being described as “something people won’t expect from an EA Sports game”. There could be more details on Fight Night Champion to come out of an EA event being held this afternoon.

“Fight Night Champion will break the mold of what is expected in a single-player sports game. Players will be introduced to an entirely new way to step between the ropes and experience the drama, emotion, excitement and tragedy of world championship boxing.”

No release date has been set, but if as suspected this is the “Unannounced Q4 Fighting Game” that was in the last financial report that would place its release in January, February, or March. Leave your thoughts in the comments!
