During a press conference following UFC on ESPN 11 last Saturday, Dana White fielded questions from the media and seemed to indicate that the promotion is planning on unveiling the latest instalment in the EA UFC franchise at UFC 251 held on 'Fight Island' in the UAE.
Though it isn't currently clear just how much is going to be revealed in the upcoming event, the release schedule based on prior entries seems to indicate the game will be out no later than this time next year.
Fans have been waiting patiently for a new game in the series ever since the release of 2018's EA UFC 3, that while popular, drew criticisms for being overly repetitive.
With the UFC being one of the few organisations to continue holding events amidst the current global situation there is no better time than to unveil an upcoming game as fans are baying for more MMA-related content.
EA has largely done a great job with the UFC series so far, but some improvements could go a long way in making UFC 4 the magnum opus of the franchsie.
