THQ Will Maintain Exclusive UFC License Until 2018


It looks like THQ will be the sole source of UFC related games until the year 2018. Today, the publisher announced a deal with Zuffa Inc., the promotion company for the Ultimate Fighting Championship, that would secure exclusive rights to release games featuring the UFC brand, as well as a plan to bring the brand to numerous other platforms.

THQ has now put into effect a plan to bring UFC branded games to handhelds, including the iPad and iPhone, in addition to the UFC training/fitness game currently slated for a release sometime in 2011.

This follows an announcement from earlier this year that they are considering ditching the yearly release schedule for their UFC Undisputed series, instead opting for a 15-21 month spread between games instead.
