EA Sports MMA 2 will "definitely" happen, despite disappointing sales of the first game, EA's game producer has confirmed.
Speaking in an interview with Figure Four Daily, producer Jeff Ecker said: "There is definitely going to be an EA Sports MMA 2," adding that it's not "if" but "when" there will be a sequel.
When quizzed on the original's lower than expected sales, Ecker was bullish and reffered the interviewer to the game's marketing department.
The news will come as a relief to fans, as industry analysts had speculated that EA would withdraw from the MMA market entirely.
EA COO John Schappert said upon MMA's release: "It's off to a slow start, but we are optimistic that this one will find an audience of fight fans over the holidays."
