Report: EA could bring back NCAA, which could mean jobs in Orlando

Industry analysts have speculated that Electronic Arts could revive its popular NCAA football video game, the Orlando Sentinel reported.

The move could mean more jobs for Orlando, as the company’s Maitland studio did the majority of the work on the title until it was canceled in 2013.

Electronic Arts will move its East Coast headquarters from Maitland during the next couple of years, the Sentinel reported.

The company employs 700 people in Central Florida, with the workforce building its iconic Madden football series here.

The company’s CEO mentioned the NCAA title during its most-recent earnings call.

The Sentinel story quoted an analyst saying the likelihood of the title’s return will rely heavily on if the NCAA exerts more control of player likenesses than the individual conferences have.
