EA Sports will continue college football
The big news in the sports & video game world today was that the NCAA ended their relationship with EA Sports. Many have said this is the end of the franchise but not so fast. EA has issued a press release saying the franchise will continue just under a new name, College Football 15.
This is simple: EA SPORTS will continue to develop and publish college football games, but we will no longer include the NCAA names and marks. Our relationship with the Collegiate Licensing Company is strong and we are already working on a new game for next generation consoles which will launch next year and feature the college teams, conferences and all the innovation fans expect from EA SPORTS.

So for people like me that’s great news as NCAA Football has been my favorite video game for many years anow. I can live with the game having a different title if it’s got the team names, conferences and bowl games.
Having the NCAA name and logos all over the place really isn’t a big deal to me. I mean it’s not like it’s Madden where we’ve got the real players. I wouldn’t even consider these computer generated players, likenesses. That’s what I’ve always enjoyed about the franchise the chance to take no names, recruit no names and create your own football universe.
