OS:Andrew Wilson told investors in EA's Q3 2014 earnings conference call that, "EA Sports and the NFL have a partnership for a number of more years," adding, "we have a number of games in development with the NFL."
I'm very disappointed by this news..EA aren't doing nothing with the NFL/Madden license but releasing half ass updates every year.
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!! Blame Microsoft Also. For Giving EA money and Partnering up with the NFL.
I think the context is interesting. Ea could have said the exclusive license is.still in play. What else is interesting is take2 is hosting a investors meeting the day after the superbowl. As gamers, pray feb3 brings some good news.
damn! now this is sad news scared of the competition so you block them out. L.A.M.E
Couldnt have said it better myself
Gamers just need to stop supporting the game man! I will not buy another NBA 2k game until they fix the online issues, I haven't purchased a Madden since the second one on the 360. They aren't really improving the game as much as we would like them to.
Football gamers that I know just have hopes that the new one will be the game they always wanted and they just really want the latest rosters while coming out the start of the season just adds to the anticipation. Madden will always sell and that is because they know how to entice fans
people buy because theres no other option. football lover want to play a football game. it one of the most played games when playing against your friends. people look at me sideways when they come to my house and i say i dont have madden.
I don't care if it's NFL players or not.. I just want an online football game where you make a team and then play others.
Well looks like i won't be playing any Madden games anytime soon!! EA really needs to go away!!
Not sure if this is being taken out of context, but EA isn't going to drop the NFL license completely once exclusivity ends, they just aren't going to extend the exclusivity part which ends this year I believe.
Hopefully it ends so that they can have a competitor.
In reality. Why pay for exclusivity if it will take ATLEAST other studios 2 years to launch an official NFL game. Even without the exclusive license - Madden is the only game in town. Smart Decision EA. (I still hate them don't get me wrong.)
Good. We can get more cool NFL spin off games now. NFL Blitz from Netherealm!
F*** You EA.
I don't think companies should hold exclusive licences for sports or even cars (see EA and Porsche).
Yea I wish it violated Antitrust laws!
I really wish we could get a NFL license current gen Tecmo Bowl. Those were my favorite football games ever made. No Jackson couldn't be stopped.
This sucks big time. I was really anticipating EA losing exclusivity on the NFL license. Looks like I'll never purchase an NFL game ever again.
*sigh* Someday, I'd really like to upgrade from Madden '12...It's looking like that may never happen.
bring ESPN NFL 2k back
