NEW YORK (AP) – EA Sports says it will not publish a college football video game next year.

The company had initially vowed to maintain the franchise after the NCAA decided in July to ends its contract to lend its logo to the game. But since then, several college conferences have followed the NCAA’s lead, and a federal appeals court ruled that Electronic Arts must face legal claims by players that it unfairly used their images without compensation.

Cam Weber, the company’s vice president for football, said in a statement on the EA Sports website Thursday that “the ongoing legal issues combined with increased questions surrounding schools and conferences have left us in a difficult position.”

Weber adds the company is “evaluating our plan for the future of the franchise.”

EA Sports began making an NCAA Football game in 1998.
