EA Puts Fight Night Franchise On Hold

By litepink,
The Fight Night boxing franchise is being put on hold for the foreseeable future, head of EA Sports Andrew Wilson tells IGN. "Right now, a great portion of the core of the Fight Night team are actually the team that are building UFC," Wilson stated. EA SPORTS UFC was recently showcased during the Xbox One reveal and will utilize EA Sports' new Ignite game engine.

This announcement doesn't mean Fight Night has been TKO'd for good. "Do I see a future for Fight Night? You know, sure. But right now, UFC is where our fighting focus is," Wilson added.

EA Sports UFC is expected to arrive on Xbox One sometime in 2014.
