EA Sports UFC 3 release date: Latest MMA video game drops early 2018

EA Sports

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) and Electronic Arts (EA) will once again join forces to bring mixed martial arts (MMA) to video game consoles, as EA Sports UFC 3 is tentatively scheduled for release in early 2018.

Expect it to find a home on PlayStation 4 and Xbox ONE, according to Polygon.

As the number would suggest, EA Sports UFC 3 would mark the third entry into the franchise, which began under THQ, and the first for UFC after being acquired by WME | IMG last summer (more on that here).

It will be interesting to see who makes the cover of EA Sports UFC 3, especially since volume two was split between Ronda Rousey and Conor McGregor, who both went on to lose (and get finished) by the “EA Curse.”

In addition, the most recent offering was plagued with bugs and glitches, returning some hilarious YouTube videos of UFC fighters doing all sorts of Matrix-style moves inside the Octagon (sample).

So, now that you know it’s coming, will you be pre-ordering a copy of EA Sports UFC 3?
