Speaking to IGN, EA Sports boss Peter Moore’s given a clear indication that a mixed martial arts game’s in the firm’s future. Boxing, however, despite the impending release of Fight Night 4, is a thing of “the past”.

“We keep a very close eye on where things like Mixed Martial Arts are going,” said Moore.

“Obviously we’ve got Fight Night — we’re incredibly excited about Fight Night — but boxing, for me, sadly feels like it’s the past of fighting and Mixed Martial Arts feels like it’s the future of fighting.

“So when we look at where people’s attention is going, that’s something we keep a very close eye on.”

No other detail was given. THQ’s releasing the next “big” mixed martial arts game in UFC 2009 Undisputed this spring.
