It's on the way for all next gen systems. I have no idea on a release date but I'm pumped for a GOOD ufc and now maybe UFC vs Pride FC game.

I agree i actually have Tapout 2 for Xbox and it is very generic and simple. I think it's going to be harder to make than Pro-Wrestling games becuase the sport overall requires more skill and thinking and boxing because your doing more than just punching.

The game is being made by THQ (the people that make WWE games) so hopefully they can make it great and they have the UFC licsense til' 2011 so they may be able to put out at least 1 or 2 games. But like i said the reason it's going to take a long time to make is becuase the sport overall is going to require a lot more than just slamming a guy to the mat and pinning him

I have Sudden Impact for PS2, and I dig it. I mean, it's definitely not perfect (Not even close), but it's fun stuff. Hell, any game that has Bas Rutten, Maurice Smith, Murilo Bustamante, & Frank Shamrock is a game I play.

Yea the next UFC game will be available on wireless systems such as the psp as well as the next gen systems (ps3/360) dunno about the Wii though...

the games currently untitled and will include current and former stars that will apparently become unlocked once achievements are done.

he higher ups at THQ have informed IGN that it will announce a brand new licensing deal tomorrow (January 16) that grants the Agoura Hills-based publisher the rights to release videogames based on Zuffa LLC's Ultimate Fighting Championship. This agreement will last through the end of 2011 and applies to PC, handheld and console platforms. The rights also incorporate online, multiplayer and downloadable capabilities.

"Ultimate Fighting Championship and THQ represent the perfect marriage of rich content and proven development capabilities," said Kelly Flock, executive vice president of worldwide publishing, THQ. "The UFC brand has seen tremendous growth in recent years with wild popularity among the core gaming demographic. This relationship serves as an extraordinary addition to THQ's world-class license portfolio as we continue to expand our competitive sports offering."

"Interactive is a critical opportunity for us to expand the Ultimate Fighting Championship brand," said Dana White, UFC president. "Our goal for the UFC games is to give our growing, global fan base the opportunity to experience the most exciting live sporting event in the world -- the UFC. THQ's unparalleled development and pedigree in the fighting/action-sports genre, in addition to their leading position as a global publisher, makes them our best partner to deliver on this objective."

Few details about the UFC games were given as we went to press, but we do know that the products will include current and former stars and champions from throughout the franchise's history. The developer, release date, and specific systems are still a mystery.

For more on what this agreement means for THQ and the UFC, IGN Xbox's Douglass C. Perry spoke with THQ EVP Kelly Flock; the transcript of which can be found hereIGN: Flock Talks UFC
