Last week, the sports video game world received a little bit of news:
This committee formed by the NCAA may result in what every college football fan has prayed for since 2013: the return of NCAA Football.
Now, this committee is only half of the comeback story. EA Sports still has to be on board on bringing back the game that was stopped in 2013. Thankfully, unlike the NCAA, EA has a brain and have stated they are very interested in bringing the game back if allowed:
SOURCE-EA would be open to making the game again, according to former NCAA Football Executive Producer Ben Haumiller. 247Sports reached out to EA Sports prior to the working group announcement and Haumiller, currently a producer for the Madden franchise, responded two days afterward through a PR representative.
“We loved making college football games,” Haumiller told 247Sports via email. “If the opportunity ever presented itself we’d be very interested in potentially getting back into that space.”
Uhhhhhhh, ya think? Of course, EA Sports wants to run it back. Are you interested in hooking up with Rihanna? Of course you are.
Now, I don’t want to get ahead of myself in fantasy booking what the game should look like, but there is one thing I do want to see in NCAA Football 2020: legacy mode. Give us a chance to play with all the great players we missed:
I’m missing a few guys, but you get what I’m saying. Imagine running around with Lamar Jackson as your QB? You wouldn’t even care about the extra 10 pounds of fat you put on because of the 5 hours a day you play the game.
Now comes the hard part: we wait. There’s no way the NCAA fucks this one up? Right? RIGHT?!?!?
