EA Sports UFC 5: Everything We Know

EA Sports UFC was first released in 2014 as the official video game for the number one MMA league in the world, and to date it's spawned three further sequels.

With EA Sports UFC 4, or simply UFC 4 being released last August 2020 for the PS4 and Xbox One consoles, a much-anticipated UFC 5 is already being talked about by both the fans of the sport and the game series itself.

With that being said, here’s everything you need to know about EA Sports UFC 5.

Not At EA Play - July 26

As we'd expected, UFC wasn't part of EA Play, suggesting the next game in the franchise is some way out.

UFC 5 Release Date

EA Sports still has no announcement of when will they release UFC 5. Yet if it will be based on the timeline of EA Sports UFC releases, it is likely that UFC 5 will be available in 2022 as to date UFC games have been released every two years.

You only need to look at past releases to see the pattern:

  • EA Sports UFC: Released 17 June 2014
  • EA Sports UFC 2: Released 15 March 2016
  • EA Sports UFC 3: Released 2 February 2018
  • EA Sports UFC 4: Released 14 August 2020

UFC 5 Leaks and Trailer News

Unfortunately, with such a long development time between the time of writing and when we expect the game to launch, there are also no official trailers or leaks for UFC 5. But you can follow us, and we will definitely bring you the latest news about UFC 5 as it becomes available.

UFC 5 Confirmed Info

EA Sports are still supporting UFC 4 with new patches and updates following the launch back in August.

We've no doubt we will see UFC 5 in the future because of the contract extension between EA Sports and UFC which guarantee's new releases for the next 10 years.

One good detail to note is that EA previously stated that UFC 4 and NHL 21 will run as they do on the Xbox One X and PS4 Pro and not receive next-gen upgrades.

So at least we don't have to worry about EA Sports delaying UFC 5 in favour of a next-gen upgrade. Whenever UFC 5 does arrive, it should be a fully realised next-gen version of the popular MMA.
