Fight Night Franchise, “Put On Hold”

Despite being one of the most popular fighting franchises and beloved by boxing fans all over the globe, EA have announced that Fight Night shall be put on hold to make way for their upcoming UFC game from whom they secured the rights from THQ.  With boxing prestige waning as a sport despite its rich history, the decision to put Fight Night on hold stands as a sad day for the sport and with all major franchises based upon boxing virtually becoming extinct over the past few years it seems that the next generation of consoles will be completely devoid of notable boxing games. There still remains some hope of the franchise being reignited but until then fans will have to play the old classics and keep their fingers crossed that the series will be resurrected in the future.
