NCAA Football 14 News Post

EA Sports posted an initially cryptic video on the NCAA Football Facebook Page today which appeared to 'show signs of life' with a heartbeat monitor.

However, instead of a cryptic announcement of an impending announcement of the game coming back, it appears the tweet was actually meant to be to mark the National Title Game tonight. Honestly, if that's the case its the worst way ever to do it -- as with nothing seemingly in development you basically are posting a video that'd make most everyone think you meant something about a 'dead' game series.

From what we know, and from what others have been told via EA, there either isn't an NCAA Football game in development right now and/or there is one under development that EA outright denies at this point and has locked up as an insanely well kept secret.

It doesn't help either that the caption of the video is "Our heart still beats for the big game... ‪#‎NationalChampionship‬" so it would seem to be about tonight's game vs. an announcement of a new NCAA game. However this is the first new post in two years on the Facebook page, so why now of all times?

With the NCAA meeting happening this week, along with the National Title game, the timing and content of the video was certainly odd and not well thought out if its not to pre-announce something -- but who knows. Maybe this is EA's way of saying something is coming eventually and we'll all be screaming for joy when that happens. It's entirely plausible this is a tease for an ad in tonight's game announcing a comeback -- it's also entirely plausible this is just a bad PR stunt by a company that probably should be above that sort of thing.

UPDATE: The official Twitter page has also posted the following updates...

We have no new plans or announcements to make regarding the EA SPORTS NCAA Football series.

Today’s #NationalChampionship game reminds us more than ever that the hearts in our community still beat for college football.

It's got to be coming back! Unless the page was "hacked." Wow!

Such an odd way to tease something—on the NCAA FB 14 page.

Good guess, but on the day of the finals? And would EA be allowed to do that swith the state of the license? Weird.

Wow. That's surprising. Why would EA even do that when the game is essentially abandoned?

They knew exactly what the hell they were doing.

Great troll job.

Whoever thought that was a good idea... Wow. Just wow.

EA is ****ing clueless.

Yes, I am grouping everyone in the entire company into that statement.
# 19 bad_philanthropy @ 01/11/16 12:23 PM
I'm just not buying it. Why use the NCAA 14 fb page—a game that the company was essentially legally forced to abandon—be the platform for promoting something about the national championship tonight? The EA Sports general fb would be more fitting.

And then why something so cryptic?

Updated OP with a bit of perspective.

Doubt its anything but if you are going to do an ad to announce a game that'd be coming out this year or next, you'd probably do it when the most people are watching that particular sport.

But with that said, there's just very little chance EA's been able to keep such a thing a secret...plus they seem to be outright denying it means anything. But who knows.
