THQ’s just announced it’s extended its deal to develop and publish all UFC games until 2018.

The publisher took over responsibility for developing and publishing games on the sport back in 2007, with UFC Undisputed 2009 and UFC Undisputed 2010 the games coming from the deal since.

Both titles sold 2.9 million and 2.7 million units respectively.

We’re very excited to extend our relationship with Zuffa and the Ultimate Fighting Championship,” said EVP of core games Danny Bilson.

We are impressed by the passion that THQ brings to making great games and we look forward to working together to create even greater gaming experiences for our fans in the future,” added UFC president Dana White.
