Holt said EA Sports is still in the very beginning of the process of game development, building out the team and deciding what direction it wants the game to go in. However, those rules are likely to be changed at some point in the coming year — by the NCAA, state legislatures or Congress. It’s not yet clear whether the evolving rules will allow for the kind of group licensing arrangements that would be needed for EA Sports to negotiate with athletes to use their names in the game. To make the game happen, EA Sports partnered with collegiate licensing company CLC to make sure it had the FBS schools, traditions, uniforms and playbooks — among other things — ready to go for the game.
Looking at 2K Sports as a whole and not their recent years, it’s evident that 2K is pushing innovation while EA Sports is playing the catch-up game. NBA 2K’s MyCareer mode is smartly designed, despite having irksome microtransactions. Electronic Arts announced on May 17 that all four Major championships for the PGA Tour will be in the new game. In that same announcement, EA Sports confirmed that EA Sports PGA Tour is slated to launch during the Spring of 2022. No specific date was given by EA, but at least we now know when we can expect the title to launch. That the name and mark of the game — College Football, apparently — will differ from the old NCAA Football name and mark was to be expected, as many things have changed since the 2013 release of NCAA Football 14.
Electronic Arts announced EA Sports PGA Tour is in development, and the licensed golf simulation will feature PGA Tour, The Players Championship, and FedExCup Playoffs branding and events. It gives 2K Sports’ PGA Tour 2K series, which just signed an exclusive deal with Tiger Woods, a direct competitor. In June 2009, EA Sports announced that for 2010, the games Madden NFL, NCAA Football, NASCAR, NHL, NBA Live, and Tiger Woods PGA Tour would not be shipped for PC platforms. The NCAA Football series had not been released on the PC since 1998, The Tiger Woods series’ last PC game was Tiger Woods PGA Tour 08, the NASCAR series had not had a PC version since NASCAR SimRacing in 2005, and the last Madden series’ to be released on PC was Madden NFL 08. The NFL, the NFL’s Players’ Association, and EA confirmed its exclusivity contract for NFL sports simulation games in May 2020, lasting through at the 2025–2026 NFL season with an optional one year extension.
• Chief executive Andrew Wilson said “There may be some other remasters” in addition to the Command & Conquer 4K remaster that the company announced last year. This would be for the company’s 2021 fiscal year, which runs from April 1, 2020 to March of the following year. That makes sense, as after live services, EA makes a large use of its back catalog with things like its EA and Origin Access program. And next year will get the PlayStation 5 and Microsoft’s Project Scarlett console. The latest in the series, FIFA 21, launches on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on 9 October 2020, and will be coming to next generation consoles later in the year. EA is a sad excuse for a company and should be destroyed at all cost.

In 2005, EA Sports and ESPN signed a massive 15-year deal for ESPN to be integrated into EA Sports video games from 2K Sports and Sega. EA’s use of the ESPN license has steadily increased over the early life of the deal.

The ESPN integration now includes streaming podcasts, text articles , and ESPN Motion video . Unlike some other sports game companies, EA Sports has no special ties to a single platform, which means that all games are released for the bestselling active platforms, sometimes long after most of the other companies abandon them. For example, FIFA 98, Madden NFL 98, NBA Live 98, and NHL 98 were released for the Sega Genesis and the Super NES throughout 1997; Madden NFL 2005 and FIFA 2005 had PlayStation releases in 2004 ; and NCAA Football 08 had an Xbox release in 2007.
