Rumor: New NFL Blitz "In Development"

By Alix Minjarez

November 21, 2010

With NBA Jam coming hot off its release with some pretty nice reviews, rumors are beginning to float around of a possible addition the Midway classic revival. Word is floating around that EA Tiburon, the studio behind the Madden NFL series, is currently developing a new NFL Blitz game. While EA isn’t commenting on the supposed upcoming game, it was reported that they bought the rights to more than just NBA Jam; with Blitz being included in the purchase.

The game is apparently still “very, very early in the developments process,” but is, from what the tipster who provided this information said, going to be developed for multiple platforms and won’t be available until 2012. Jeff Gerstmann from GiantBomb is the lad that received the rumor call and stands by the trustworthiness of this tipster, so take the rumor however you see fit. If you’re a Blitz fan, what do you think about EA possibly taking up the torch?
