This is definitely good news. Sports games are so much better when there is competition.
I miss having the "2k" series around to push EASports.
Question is if we´re gonna have 2 or zero games when the contract between EA and the NCAA expires.
NCAA smaller than Madden - but there is still much money to be earned, so I would expect at least 2 games.
A few companies still have engines around from failed unlicesned football games (All Pro Football, Backbreaker) so there is some potential here.
Think of college basketball.
College baseball could also be done.
What I am referring to is that both EA and 2k Sports discontinued their college basketball series in 2007 and there hasn´t been a game since. EA actually did make 2 college baseball games after 2k snapped up the exclusive rights for the 360, but discontinued it due to rapidly declining sales.
I wouldn´t bet on there being a game at all when the contract expires. EA has a game engine etc. ready and in place already whereas a new company would have to design a full game from scratch. That´s a huge risk.
Neither for those is football - and I already noted that other companies already have engines developed
