With UFC 4 recently given away to PS Plus users and interest in the sport of combat booming worldwide, more and more players are eagerly awaiting news of the new chapter in the series. Today, well-known insider Tom Henderson said EA Sports UFC 5 is in production and should be released in the summer of 2023, while the new chapter of the boxing game Fight Night is expected to be completed soon after.
EA Sports UFC has had some success with the third and fourth installments, and EA is currently working on a new game, perhaps just for the next gen. In recent years, the popularity of mixed martial arts sport has grown a lot worldwide, so it makes sense that Electronic Arts intends to continue to focus strongly on sport, especially considering the limited competition.
On the other hand, the Fight Night series has been standing still for eleven years now, but EA is working on a new chapter, according to Tom Henderson. As well to the UFC, interest in boxing has also continued to grow in recent years thanks to champions such as Tyson Fury, Canelo Alvarez, and Anthony Joshua, without considering the various performances between YouTubers such as Logan and Jake Paul. In the last period, they even brought Floyd Mayweather back to the ring. Henderson reveals that production of the game has been discontinued at the moment and that it is expected to resume once work is done on UFC 5 . Between 2023 and 2024, lovers of combat sports should have bread for their teeth.
