Fight Night Champion franchise isn’t going to be closed. Nevertheless, developers report that they will return to this series a bit later. When to expect new Fight Night and can we expect? Let’s try to find it out.
When to Expect Fight Night Champion 2
Since the first part of the game was released many fans expect it to come back with a new set of fighters. Its release date still stays unknown. At first, there were promises saying that the new part would be released in the end of 2016. As you see these promises haven’t lived up to the expectations. The release has been postponed because EA have focused on UFC. They do promise that Fight Night 2 will come but a bit later. No particular dates have been promised yet.
Fight Night 2 Better Than Before?
When Fight Night 1 was released it became a breakthrough for the fightings because the game had great graphics and physics as well. Now that time has passed on the game is still the legend. Even though there’s not much information about the second part it’s said it will be even better that the first Fight Night. The game is said to be incredibly beautiful. How far is it true? We’ll see.
Fight Night Champion 2 On Consoles
Good news is that this fighting will still stay a cross-platformer and you can expect for different consoles. Fight Night Champion 2 for PS4 is on the list too so there’s no need to worry that developers will ignore this console. The bad news is that the game won’t be supported by previous generation platforms. So if you’re PS3 owner you will be disappointed. Unfortunately Fight Night Champion 2 PS4 release date is still a mystery.
The same goes to Xbox One. It has been confirmed officially and a lot of sources have already shared this news. The fighting will come to Xbox One and you will be able to enjoy as much as PS4 owners. The problem with Xbox 360 is also here. This console won’t be able to support this game. When to expect this release? Someday only.
There’s still a trailer which give us a glimpse of hope that the game will be released sooner or later.
Next Gen Only
Even though the first part of the game was initially released for PS3 and Xbox 360 (not to mention PC), there’s no chance to see it on the consoles of previous generations. EA is going to focus on PS4 and Xbox One mainly. They still haven’t confirmed that new Fight Night won’t support backwards compatibility but they don’t promise it either. So it extremely unlikely that EA will release it for PS3. Fight Night Champion 2 for Xbox 360 isn’t expected either.
It’s still early enough to think about who will appear in the game. There’s too little information. However, the fans of the game believe that the following fighters will stay:
- Muhammad Ali
- Mike Tyson
- Vitali Klitschko
- Rocky Marciano
- Roy Jones
- Pernell Whitaker
- Roberto Duran
- Billy Dib
