Fight Night Round 5 For PS4 Might Have Been Accidentally Leaked

Boxing fans are hoping that they can soon play the likes of Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather in a video game. Based on recent reports, there might be light at the end of the tunnel with the possible return of the Fight Night franchise on next-generation consoles.

The Fight Night franchise was well received when it hit the market in previous generations of consoles. The last game in the franchise was released way back in 2011, when the PS3 was still getting a lot of attention.

Fast forward to 2017, there are still no confirmed report about a new Fight Night game. Boxing fans are eager to know if developers are still planning to create a boxing video game featuring the biggest boxing stars -- past and present like in previous iterations.

Rumors about a new Fight Night game surfaced after a mysterious page on Electronic Arts website was discovered, PlayStation Universe reported. The page shows "Fight-Night, Games For PS4," which could be a hint that EA is already preparing to develop the next iteration for the PlayStation 4.

The report also added that there is already a meta description, "fight-night, games for PlayStation 4 by Electronic Art the leader in interactive entertainment." However, PSU quickly added that the news should be taken with a grain of salt until EA gives a clear statement on the page that was discovered.

However, the report added that fans should not lose hope. One of the main reasons why EA discontinued the franchise is their decision to focus on making an Ultimate Fighting Championship video game. UFC was a big draw when they made the decision but it did not translate to good sales and reviews.

UFC and UFC 2 were both criticized unlike the last Fight Night game. IGN praised Fight Night Champion because of the high graphics quality combined with wide content and excellent punch control. If EA will based their decision on ratings alone, it will not be a surprised if they shift their focus to a Fight Night instead of another UFC game.
