EA confirms new UFC game will unveil on May 21

Date coincides with next-gen Xbox event

Electronic Arts has confirmed that a new Ultimate Fighting Championship game will reveal tomorrow - the same day as the next-gen Xbox event.


The publisher posted teaser images to Twitter and Facebook, which were both accompanied by the text "First news: May 21".

EA confirmed overnight that FIFA 14 will exhibit at Microsoft's next Xbox reveal event tomorrow. The publisher hasn't specified that UFC will show at the same event, but the timing suggests it may.

UFC president Dana White announced at E3 last year that EA will publish future UFC titles, following THQ's ownership of the license. EA's UFC title is in development at EA Canada, the studio responsible for the Fight Night series.

Tomorrow's next-gen Xbox event will take place in Washington. Hosted by Don Mattrick, the showcase is expected to bring new next-gen footage of Call of Duty: Ghosts and FIFA 14.

Microsoft's IllumiRoom functionality will also reportedly feature.
