Unlike other sports games from EA, which are released yearly, UFC games are a bit more spaced out and it can be tough to work out a release schedule at a glance – so, if you’re wondering when the UFC 5 release date is, you’re not alone. Players around the world have been enjoying going toe-to-toe in UFC 4’s octagon since August 2020 and interest around the next game in the series is growing.
So, that’s why we’re going to take a look at what we know about the UFC 5 release date, and the next UFC game in general, below. 2K has made a triumphant return to form with WWE 2K22, but there’s nothing out there at the moment quite like EA Sports’ UFC games.
With intense grapples and holds, hard-hitting kicks and devastating punches, UFC 4 is the ultimate fighting game for the Ultimate Fighting Championship. Keep reading for the latest information on when we’re going to get back into the octagon with Glover Teixeira, Charles Oliveira, Rose Namajuanas, and everyone else on the roster.
UFC 5 release date rumours
At the moment, we expect the UFC 5 release date to be sometime in 2023. News is light at the moment, but judging by the previous pattern of releases, sometime between June and August seems likely.
Two of the series’ titles have launched in the spring and two in the summer, with the most recent hitting shelves on August 2020. While there has been a two-year release pattern previously, there was no UFC 5 in 2022. RealSport101 has reported that UFC 5 is already in development, but didn’t credit a source.
So, it’s worth taking all of this with a pinch of salt until we know more from official sources.
UFC 5 gameplay trailers
There are currently no UFC 5 gameplay trailers – or any footage relating to the game at all. We will update this article when things change.
UFC 5 game pass
EA Play may be linked with Xbox Game Pass and PC Game Pass, but we don’t think UFC 5 is going to be available on Game Pass at launch. We could see a ten-hour trial released for EA Play and Xbox Game Pass members though, a system used for previous games from EA.
We’ll update this article when we know more from an official source.
Well, that’s everything we know about the UFC 5 release date right now. Keep checking back for more information – we’ll make sure this is as up to date as it can be.
