Breaking It Down: Who Will Bring College Sports Back?


It has been eight months. How much longer do we have to wait?

The sad and unfortunate truth is that nobody knows. College sports have left the video game world and shut the door behind them. When EA Sports announced that they would be discontinuing the NCAA Football series, a significant portion of sports gaming disappeared just like that. The real question becomes: how much longer are we going to have to wait, and who is going to be the one to bring college sports gaming back?

I don't think we'll see anything soon. Demand among sports gamers for college sports games is high, but demand is not that significant when the entire gaming community (and the types of games purchased) is considered. It's just not worth the risk for someone to dive into this space.

The most likely candidate is EA sports, for obvious reasons. NCAA football is the most profitable college license so if there is a way to get back in that market EA is in.

College Basketball has a smaller market that I don't think could support 2 games enough to be profitable. A better route would probably be to release a Hoops game every 2 or 3 years. Add a MyPlayer mode and offer a nice sized patch at a small price (20$) each year with gameplay updates and updated rosters (if its allowed), if not update fictional rosters to mimic the real life teams a little more. Allow us to purchase and play with some historic college squads online. After a few years the game could turn a profit.

Fully custom sports games are my dream. Open sourced so modders can go crazy. If I ever hit the lottery...

our best bet would be ea to bring back their college series with a new ncaa football game some where down the line and it sucks we were one year away from having atleast one college football game on next gen consoles, but more people play football and it has a fan base made in it

Most likely no one until colleges and game companies agree on royalties. Nothing is going to happen for awhile so speculation of who is really pointless and not ground breaking at all.
