UFC 3 Being Revealed at E3

Posted May 5th, 2011 at 11:45 am

The next entry in the UFC franchise is set to debut at E3. What is currently being referred to as “UFC 3” will be officially revealed at the gaming expo which is now just a month away. The game is slated to release in January or February 2012.

UFC Undisputed 2010 took a huge tumble in sales, was criticized heavily for issues particularly hampering online play, and publisher THQ damaged trust with consumers with the way they handled the roll out of their own “online pass” system. That led to the series moving off a yearly release schedule. It can only be hoped they learned from the mistakes made, and with no direct competition pushing them they’ll have a lot to prove to make it back to the stature of a highly anticipated top flight franchise.
