EA Sports boss Andrew Wilson has revealed that the Fight Night franchise has been put on hold while the team works on EA’s upcoming UFC title.

“Right now, a great portion of the core of the Fight Night team are actually the team that are building UFC,” he told IGN. ”Do I see a future for Fight Night? You know, sure. But right now, UFC is where our fighting focus is.”

The last game released in the series was Fight Night Champion back in 2011. EA has revealed that its upcoming next generation sports titles, including UFC, will be powered by a new Ignite engine. You can check out a trailer for it here.
