    Member colleges and universities license their own trademarks and other intellectual property for the video game. They will have to independently decide whether to continue those business arrangements in the future.
    What this boils down to is the NCAA can see that they are treading on dangerous ground by profiting from the use of universities and players "likenesses". They are simply backing away and shifting liability to the universities if players were to sue for use of their "likenesses".

    The NCAA football video game franchise is extremely popular and profitable, I don't see a reason why EA would discontinue it. What will be interesting is to see if the NCAA enters into an agreement with another video game producer to produce similiar content.

    or why not open it up a bit and let there be more than one ncaa game so theres a little competition out there to force people like EA to produce a better product than the lame same game different year on the cover thing they have been doing for years

    It allows conferences to negotiate separate agreements. $EC strikes again.

    Well, now I have to buy this year's version... May be the last for a while... Which is fine. There will be groups that will make updated rosters if there is no game next year.

    This won't stop the game from being made...it has already been confirmed that next year it will be EA Sports College Football 15. No changes other than that.

    One of the best EA games ever was NCAA Baseball in 2006 and 2007 it was after EA lost their MLB license and Hockey went on strike.

    In that instance EA ended the baseball agreement. They could have used that as leverage this time around. Too bad.

    I agree I had one of those games, and it sure was a good game.
    Also I feel NFL 2k5 was one of the best football games made

    EA's greatest franchise (this means gamer rating and sales) has always been NHL

    EA has already cut a deal with Collegiate Licensing to continue using the University names and logos. Just no more "NCAA" in the title for the franchise, but it will continue.

    Those NCAA baseball games were and still are the ___t. I have both and still dust off the ps2 to play those bad boys. I really wish they'd come out with one for the newer generation consoles, that would be awesome!

    It would be great if these lawsuits eventually led to schools being allowed to pay the players off of the profit they make from this game which would mean the game could use the actual player's name. Also, if schools used real names and whatnot, that would make the game much more accountable for being accurate with our rosters. I'm pretty sure a few of the players on our team on the game do not exist in real life. And it's a way to put some extra cash in our athlete's pockets.
