EA Sports Cancels NCAA Football Series

Posted September 26th, 2013 at 1:30 pm


EA Sports has officially canceled their NCAA Football series which was going to be renamed College Football next year. The news comes on the heels of individual institutions expressing a desire to get out of the video game business by pulling their licenses. The NCAA was first to withdraw licensing, multiple conferences followed, but losing the schools was when EA began to see the writing on the wall that the series would not be sustainable.

EA is currently seeking to settle the player likeness lawsuits that have led to the current situation. [UPDATE] EA and the CLC have in fact settled. More on all the news later today…
