It’s been seven years since Fight Night Champion, the last full-fledged boxing game to be launched on major consoles, was released to the masses.
Since then, questions have continued to pop up regarding the future of the Fight Night series and boxing games in general. Well, if Floyd Mayweather is to be believed, fans may not have to wait too much longer for a new boxing title.
In a video posted by TMZ, Mayweather claims to be working on his own boxing game.
“I’m working on my video game as we speak,” Mayweather said. “You know I couldn’t go on [Fight Night] because, remember, before I do anything, I have to have some ownership.”
This is, obviously, the first anyone has heard of a Mayweather-backed boxing video game so it’s unclear if this would be a major release or a simple mobile game. In fact, there’s no way to really prove a game is even in development at all.
Still, the fact that he openly mentioned a new boxing game being developed is sure to pique the interest of fans hoping for a current generation game.
