It’s been a succession of good news in the last week. First, the simulation-games giant, EA Sports, showed an augmented interest in bringing back the NCAA title after almost eight years since its last release.
Yesterday, the NCAA, which regulates all collegiate activities, released a policy change that now allows students to profit from endorsements, their image and likenesses.

If all this was not great enough, EA Sports released a statement today expressing their interest in including real players and names in their video game, which sounds like a comeback appears imminent.
This will also mean a negotiation between the developers and FBS, which seems to already be on the table as a leaked document would show the proposal made a couple of days ago.
This gives us hope that this won’t be an ephemeral experiment and we could enjoy the college experience for at least a couple of years.
It also offers four different tiers of guaranteed revenue based on each team’s relevance and it states that these tiers can change from year to year based on the teams’ performance.
Although the details may change in the light of this policy changes because of how the money may flow and get in the players´ hands as they do not have a player association like the NFL, but we’ll wait and see how the back and forth develops in the upcoming months.
