EA Sports would love to bring back its beloved NCAA Football game.
EA would be open to making the game again, according to former NCAA Football Executive Producer Ben Haumiller. 247Sports reached out to EA Sports prior to the working group announcement and Haumiller, currently a producer for the Madden franchise, responded two days afterward through a PR representative.
“We loved making college football games,” Haumiller told 247Sports via email. “If the opportunity ever presented itself we’d be very interested in potentially getting back into that space.”
You know there’s a market. I know there’s a market. EA knows there’s a market. I suspect the NCAA does, too.
There’s only one little problem.
“I mean, on black markets you can sell your body parts,” Zabransky said. “Who we are is owned by us and us only. If your likeness can generate a revenue for you then in a free capitalist society you should be able to use it.”
Too bad college athletics isn’t a free capitalist society.
