The UFC Undisputed video game series took a break this year, allowing more time for game developer THQ to improve upon the game before launching the next version in 2012.
So far the latest version, currently known as both UFC 2012 and UFC 3, has been under wraps, but that’s all about to change with the title set to be showcased at the E3 Electronic Game Expo on June 7-9th in L.A.
According to THQ boss Danny Bilson it’s going to be worth waiting for.
“Saw a killer demo of UFC 3 this week,” Bilson stated on Twitter. “Will blow people away at E3.”
The original UFC Undisputed 2009 game was a huge success for the company, though the following year’s 2010 edition failed to meet it’s projected sales figures. Since then EA Sports first foray into the market with EA MMA which also underperformed. That’s not deterred others though, with 505 games set to launch Supremacy MMA next month which features an ‘unlicensed’, arcade-influenced take on the sport.
UFC 2012 is expected to be released in March, 2012 for Xbox 360 and PS3.
