Video game publishers can pounce on that white hot Arena Football League licence, now that EA has opted not to renew its deal with the faster-paced, indoor-only take on American football. According to a report from the Sports Business Journal, EA has had just about enough arena football, coming to the end of its three-year agreement with the league and choosing not to invest in the AFL.
EA Sports published two games with the Arena Football League licence, Arena Football for the PlayStation 2 and Xbox in 2006 and Arena Football: Road to Glory for the PlayStation 2 in 2007.
Oh, hey, look. There goes a tumbleweed.
