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.
