After a 6 year hiatus, the beloved NCAA Football video game series may be returning to EA Sport’s annual fall slate of releases.

This comes after a vote by the board of the NCAA that allows players to be paid for their likeness, and other endorsement deals.

Since college athletes can now profit from their likeness it’s time for a new installment of the NCAA Football video games. The NCAA Football game is a video game much like Madden but for college teams instead of the NFL.

Production of both games were stopped because players were upset that their likeness was being used, in extreme detail from their height, weight, and even what specific gear they used on game day, and they weren’t seeing a dime of it. There hasn’t been an installment of the NCAA Football games since NCAA Football 14, which released in 2013

Since then, there have been many attempts to revive the game, but they have all been shot down before production could start.

The demand for the NCAA Football games will be there when they finally do release, as the 2014 installment is $79.99 at Gamestop, and even more on sites like Ebay. Now that players can profit from their games it’s time to bring this beloved classic back.
