UFC 5 is set to be the next iteration of the successful MMA series that originally began on Playstation 4 and Xbox One.
EA Sports released UFC 4 back in August 2020, so it seems about time for the next game in the franchise to be nearing release.
The release schedule for the games is usually around two years apart, so fans are anticipating that it’ll be arriving sooner rather than later.
Here’s everything that we know right now about EA Sports UFC 5, including the potential release date of the game.
UPDATE 12th May 2022: A recent leak has indicated that the game will be coming out in 2023!
