EA announces mixed martial arts title

Company has also sold over 600,000 units of EA Sports Active in two weeks

Peter Moore, president of EA Sports, has revealed that the company is developing a mixed marital arts title - EA MMA - for launch next year

Speaking at the company's E3 press conference, Moore said the game will deliver a "authentic and broad mixed martial arts experience" and include a "vast array of top fighters from around the world."

The game is being built by EA Tiburon and is "well in development" according to Moore, although nothing beyond a logo was shown of the game.

Moore also revealed that EA Sports Active, the publisher's direct attempt to capture a portion of the exercise gaming market, has sold over 600,000 units and a new expansion pack is due for the title this Christmas.
