"MMAjunkie recently participated in a Q&A session with the EA Sports UFC developers, Creative Director Brian Hayes and Lead Producer Nate McDonald, on the upcoming game. Below are some highlights.

"The game is due out on the Xbox One and PS4 later this year.

"Will the game be released on current gen platforms: "The day that we signed the deal there may have been discussions of where we're going to make the game.

It would have split our focus and we wanted to make sure we focused on this and having the team not having to split.'"
