EA, NCAA Take a Time Out


EA Sports will not publish a 2015 version of its college football video game, and is uncertain about the future of the franchise after an ongoing dispute between the NCAA and student-athletes led to the NCAA withdrawing its support for the game.

“The ongoing legal issues combined with increased questions surrounding schools and conferences have left us in a difficult position­–one that challenges our ability to deliver an authentic sports experience, which is the very foundation of EA Sports games,” said Cam Weber, general manager, American football, EA Sports, in a blog post on the Electronic Arts website.
