UFC 5 Release Date Speculation
Update: UFC 5 has an official release date of 26 October 2023!
If there is one thing that EA is, consistent is usually it. They are constantly releasing new games on a pretty regular schedule, like the latest FIFA games.
UFC games have been released every two years since 2014. That means in 2022, people naturally expected a new UFC 5 game to be released. However, 2023 has arrived no news of it in sight.
But that does not mean that UFC 5 is not under development. In 2020, EA and UFC signed a multi-year partnership to continue to make games together.
"We’re thrilled that we will continue our partnership with EA for the next 10 years,” said Tracey Bleczinski, Senior Vice President, UFC Global Consumer Products. “EA SPORTS has become a natural extension of UFC’s brand and an important way to engage with our fans."

Does that mean that UFC 5 is under development? Possibly, but nothing is guaranteed. After all, the UFC 4 game is still getting updates at the moment.
In a tweet, EA Sports recently announced that two fighters named Bo Nickal and Raul Rosas Jr. are joining UFC 4. This tweet was made on September 29, 2022.
But fans have found job postings created by EA for jobs to help develop UFC games. So it is possible that UFC 5 is under development. Once we know more, we will update you as soon as we can.
