NCAA Football Video Game: Is EA Sports College Football Coming Back to PS4?

The internet is abuzz over a newly released ad from PlayStation called “Greatness Awaits.” The only problem is fans may be jumping to conclusions over something that is not coming to fruition.

EA Sports stopped making the NCAA football series after NCAA 14. After legal complications over college players being compensated for the use of their likeness, EA decided to end the game rather than risk further lawsuits.

The new PlayStation ad features Urban Meyer, who happens to be wearing an Ohio State jacket, and Jim Harbaugh. The trailer also features former college football stars like Deshaun Watson, Derrick Henry and Joey Bosa.

All indications are the ad is nothing more than a promotion for the PS4 console itself. This is sure to anger fans who are desperate for a new NCAA game.

There was excitement from college football fans after the Madden 18 Longshot trailer showed college football teams. While the new mode is great, it does little to replace the old NCAA franchise. Aside from a few flashbacks with Devin Wade playing at Texas, there are no opportunities to choose to play for different college football programs.

Kameron and Alex Lewis have started Imackulate Vision Gaming (IVG) with the goal of creating a new NCAA franchise. The company is raising funding to make the game, but it will include generic teams at first. The founders told Fox Sports they have not ruled out using licensed college programs in the future.

Yes, it is definitely a possibility. We have spoken directly with the College Licensing Company, Learfield Licensing, and many universities. We feel it is imperative to first prove that our generic team/roster model will be profitable and protect the legal interest of our company and any university that becomes involved with Gridiron Champions before pursuing licensed schools. Plus, we really would like to focus on the gameplay and mechanics in our first game and build from there.
