EA will "stick around the genre" and the next MMA entry will be "bigger and better," he said. With a sequel it "will be undeniable" who's the MMA champ.
EA Sports' boxing and MMA development team have apparently joined into one super ring fighting development entity, or whatever. "I hope so, I really think that the sport is still blossoming, it's extremely popular but I don't think its hit the peak yet," said Mike Mahar, asked if he hopes they get to make another MMA title.
"The guys that made the game did a fantastic job and I think it's a far better game than it got rated," he commented. EA Sports MMA has struggled to wrestle THQ's Ultimate Fighter franchise for the top spot in the MMA sport.
"I think we'll stick around the genre and next time that we make a game, if they make another MMA game soon, it'll be bigger and better. It will be undeniable what the best fighting game is for sure," boasted the Fight Night Champion producer.
EA has already hinted it's a case of 'when not if' EA Sports MMA 2 is green lit.
