    Posted January 8th, 2016 at 7:00 am 2 Comments »
    The first EA Sports UFC struggled with its identity, as the publisher not only marketed the game but tailored its gameplay to attempt and attract consumers who were simply never going to be interested in it. One of the first indicators of that ill-advised decision was the announcement of Bruce Lee as the pre-order bonus and a major marketing push centered around the legendary martial artist and actor who of course never actually had any association with the UFC.

    EA Sports has ensured that the cover of the UFC sequel won't feature two fighters coming off losses. After the disruption to the marketing plan for EA Sports UFC 2 that came with Ronda Rousey getting demolished - and she won't be back to fight before the game comes out - the person joining her will be the winner of the upcoming main event at UFC 194.

    The big sports gaming news this month has related to the official announcement of the sequel to 2014's EA Sports UFC.
