EA Will "Temporarily" Discontinue College Football Games

Whelp, I may as well jump in on today's news trend. EA Sports has decided to cancel the next NCAA football game, and all future college football games for the foreseeable future. This isn’t a big shock to us after the NCAA announced in July that it would be cutting ties with the company after a series of legal disputes, some which have been resolved as of this weekBut are we really surprised that EA is going to be looking at alternative options? Not really. 

My bet is that they are going to make a new “version” of NCAA football but remove the logos and all of that business. The sports market for EA is a huge source of income, so any way that they can spin this, they will. Give it a year or two and we’ll probably see it back on the market under a new title. Hell, individual schools can still work with EA to create a football game. But no likeness of any players is allowed.
