NCAA has no plans to renew EA contract

Written by David Stellmack

EA still to develop college football games

Electronic Arts is still planning to develop college football games in the wake of the news that the NCAA has no plans to renew its contract for use of NCAA’s name and logo. NCAA Football 14 will be the last EA college football game from EA to carry the NCAA logo and licensing, unless something changes.

It is possible that the NCAA and EA could enter in to some sort of a non-exclusive arrangement for licensing, but right now that isn’t in the cards. Part of the reason for this turn of events has to do with the $27 million dollar settlement for a class action lawsuit over the game. Part of the settlement was that EA could not enter into an exclusive agreement with the NCAA.

According to EA they will continue to develop college football titles and that the Collegiate Licensing Company has a good relationship with the publisher. The Collegiate Licensing Company controls the licensing for the college teams, leagues, and so forth.

It isn’t clear yet if in the end there will be much actual difference in the game other than the NCAA logos missing. We will have to wait and see next year and compare the two.
