E3 2012: E3 Electronic Arts Announces a Multi-Year Partnership with UFC

on June 4, 2012 4:59 PM

During the Electronic Arts Press conference at E3 the publisher announced something quite unexpected: a global, multi-year partnership with UFC to create a new franchise based on the mixed martial arts sport.

With THQ floating in rather bad waters, EA Sports managed to snatch the license away. While nothing is known about the games themselves, UFC fans definitely have something new to look forward to.

Hailing from sunny (not as much as people think) Italy and long standing gamer since the age of Mattel Intellivision and Sinclair ZX Spectrum. Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
