THQ’s days are over as Electronic Arts just announced that they have obtained the rights to the UFC video game. THQ had owned the rights to UFC video games since the first showing of UFC Undisputed 2009.
“We’ve relished our relationship with UFC over the last several years and believe that the UFC gaming brand is in great shape. THQ’s more focused strategy moving forward meant that transferring the license to EA made sense to all parties,” said THQ CEO Brian Farrell. “We’d like to thank the UFC for their great support and partnership and wish EA all the best moving forward.”
