EA Sports returning with College Football game
EA Sports recently announced its plans to be “in the game” of NCAA College Football once again after an eight-year hiatus and speculation of the game not returning to the college playing level. Daryl Holt, EA Sports vice president and general manager, said the game is returning at some point but not this year.
The gaming company partnered with the collegiate licensing company and must input player data, playbooks, traditions, and uniform combinations — among other aspects — to make the game with its 100-plus teams possible. Also, EA Sports is planning to put in rosters that include name, image, and likeness for athletes.
Although it is currently against the rule and talks of any changes have been tabled, there is a growing belief that the current rules will likely be changed sometime this year by either the NCAA, state legislatures, or Congress.
When the game does make its return, it will be the first game with the first college football title since 2014, which had former Michigan Wolverines quarterback Denard Robinson. For more sports coverage, click here.
