I hope it is a big departure from the previous entries in the series. I am a HUGE MMA fan and I cannot stand them. There is no "weight" to the strikes and they are all slow and lazy. The grappling is not intuitive at all. EAC needs to go to the THQ UFC games if they want to see what good looks like. The strikes in that game were fantastic. Plus the last one had a Pride FC mode!!!!!!
Oh and for the love of god give us open weight matches!
A multiplat sports game not being cross gen when it's a launch title would be very surprising to me. I'd say either the leak just isn't precising it or it's blatantly bogus. Both NBA 2K14 & Madden NFL 25 were current gen launch games but still were cross gen, and it's EA we're talking about here.
