E3 2012: EA Gets UFC License

THQ announced today that they’ve given up the rights to the UFC gaming license to EA for an undisclosed cash amount. This ends the THQ-published Undisputed series, and it isn’t known who will be developing the EA entries or what they’ll be called. It’s possible that the Undisputed name will be kept, but EA could also change the name to mark their own era for the license. After years of bad blood between the UFC’s president and EA due to the EA MMA game, this is surprising news, but not entirely unexpected given the financial shape THQ is in.
