This is virtually not a surprise, but EA Sports announced on Thursday they will not produce a college football video game next year.
This comes during a lawsuit between former college players and the EA Sports as the players are trying to get compensation for being used in the video games, even though EA never published player names.
Shortly after EA Sports announced they will not have a college football video game next year, they and the Collegiate Licensing Company reached a deal with the former players involved in the lawsuit. EA Sports and the CLC will pay around $40 million to 200,000-300,000 former players.
It is unknown if they will ever publish more college football video games in the future. With the lawsuit being settled, EA Sports could redo the entire franchise and come up with something different in 2015.
This could also mean another publishing company such as 2K Sports could publish its own college video game in the near future if EA decides not to do it.
