In an interview with ESPN, EA Sports vice president and general manager, Daryl Holt, announced the return of the video game.
“As we look for the momentum that we’re building on in sports, it all starts with the passion of our fans and the opportunities of what they are interested in,” said Holt. “I don’t think there’s a visit where I go outside wearing a piece of EA Sports-branded apparel that someone doesn’t go, ‘Hey, when is college football coming back.”
ESPN staff writer, Michael Rothstein, reports the game will feature over 100 teams, however, the company will not include rosters due to NCAA name, image or likeness rules. Current NCAA rules prohibit college athletes from profiting off their name, image or likeness, but those rules could change within the year due to a review process by both the NCAA and Congress.
