In a news release, the NCAA announced it will not enter into a new agreement with EA Sports for the video game franchise. The contract is set to expire in June of next year, but the announcement has been made to, according to the NCAA, "provide EA notice for future planning."
It's a major move to part ways like this, but also an understandable one. The NCAA is looking to protect itself down the road and teaming with EA Sports isn't going to help those interests. ESPN's Brett McMurphy reports that EA Sports still plans to have a college football video game. As long as Collegiate Licensing Company, which deals in licensing for schools, conferences and bowls, has a part in the game, it should look about the same. But the name "NCAA Football" is gone.
The final and last video game NCAA Football 14 was released earlier this month.
