EA press release

EA SPORTS Begins Development of Exclusive New College Football Console Experience

REDWOOD CITY, California and ATLANTA, Georgia - February 2, 2021 - Today, Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: EA), a worldwide leader in interactive entertainment and sports gaming, and CLC, the nation’s leading collegiate trademark licensing company, announced the expected return of college football to EA SPORTS. The partnership allows for EA SPORTS to be the exclusive developer of simulation college football video game experiences. Development of EA SPORTS College Football is just underway, with launch timing still to come as the project progresses in the years ahead.

For two decades, EA SPORTS entertained millions of fans by recreating the unparalleled pageantry of college football. The EA SPORTS college football franchise was a consistent top-five sports title in North America during its previous run, generating tens of millions unit sales from 2005-2014. In recent years, college football has been one of the most-requested games by fans from EA SPORTS, and today EA is confirming plans for its official return.

"We’ve heard from the millions of passionate fans requesting the return of college football video games,” said Cam Weber, EA SPORTS EVP and GM. “We love the energy, tradition and pageantry of college football and I am beyond thrilled to say we are back in development. We have a lot of really exciting work ahead of us, and a great team that is eager to bring a new game to players in the next couple of years.”


“We’re very excited to collaborate with EA SPORTS to bring back the college football franchise, one of the most popular collegiate licensed products in our history,” said Cory Moss, CLC CEO. “The college football video game connects passionate fans to college brands and introduces new fans to the storied traditions, excitement, and game day experience that make college football unique.”


The new franchise will deliver authentic college football experiences and the high-quality gameplay that fans have long loved in college football games from EA SPORTS. Through the CLC partnership, the franchise will include the rights to more than 100 institutions featuring the logos, stadiums, uniforms, gameday traditions and more that fans have come to know and love. While this college game will not include student-athlete names, images and likenesses, EA SPORTS is continuing to watch those developments closely.


EA SPORTS reaches players all around the globe, and in the past year introduced six new console and PC experiences, as well as ongoing live service offerings on PC and mobile. EA SPORTS franchises delivered sports entertainment to millions of fans with an array of authentic, deep experiences that brought players closer to the sports, teams, and leagues that they love. The return of its most requested franchise will only accelerate momentum and player excitement.

Looks like it might only be for next gen and not to be expected this fall. They will have to work on special deals for the Big Ten, USC and Notre Dame since they are not CLC clients.

I wonder if Tiburon is developing it? Hopefully it's a different studio.

That is almost guaranteed that it will be made at Tuburon. Many of the NCAA guys moved over to Madden after it was cancelled.  Bright side is...



They have a ball pit in the conference room at Tiburon. Where brilliant decisions like, "Remove the refs from the game" and "How about we have a Spongebob Squarepants tie-in for The Yard" are decided on. Rumor has it they yell out Bazinga every time an employee finds a way to add microtansactions to the future NCAA game.


You are up 2K, time to announce the return of College basketball. Just think of all that VC you could be selling. 300+ alternate/classic uniforms has to be making the marketing team drool.

I like this news. EA hiring a few guys that are passionate about college football and have been trying to keep NCAA 14 relevant since it was cancelled.
