EA Sports announces the return of College Football video game series

After a long hiatus, the franchise will be making its return.

If you’re like me, you loved the NCAA football video game franchise. There was nothing like taking your favorite team, or even a random team, in dynasty and leading them to the promise land.

Sadly, the franchise was discontinued after the release of NCAA Football 14 back in 2013, due to the players not getting any compensation for the release of the game, while the game used their likeness.

Today, however, marks a day in history. Today, after seven long years, EA announced the return of the college football franchise:

No other information was given, such as release date, but in an interview with ESPN, EA Sports Vice President and GM Daryl Holt said that EA partnered with a collegiate licensing company, CLC, to make sure it had over 100 FBS teams, uniforms, different playbooks, traditions and much more.

The game will be for next-gen consoles like PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, so if you’re eager to get your hands on the game when it comes out, you might have to buy one of the new consoles.

Don’t fret, however, as Holt said that the game will not be finished in 2021, so you have time.

And if you want to relive some of the great moments of NCAA Football 2014, here’s a simulated beatdown Kentucky gave Louisville in the 2020 season:
