As some of you will likely recall, some time ago we covered news of a player petition to bring UFC 2 to PC, upon reaching 4,000 signatures. However, this small petition has grown more than twice as large since then, and is growing more and more daily.

The petition's only demand is a playable PC port for UFC 2, and considering the large overlap between the PC gaming customer base and UFC fan base, this seems like a no-brainer. In fact, considering UFC 2's slow decline since its jump to second place in the UK charts, this could be an easy way to revitalize the game.

John Smith, the creator of this petition, makes some valid points with regards to this;

There is an under-served market here. We like MMA. We like video games. If [EA] makes it, we will buy EA UFC 2 for PC... Just look at Skyrim and how well it has done and continues to do years after it's release. This thing would sell like hotcakes if it had mod support.

The expectations of most people who signed the petition are quite simple; a 1080p port capable of running at 60 FPS.

One of the petitioners, Obinna Onochie, had this to say;

Because I'm not buying a console for this. If Witcher 3, MGS V and GTA V can come out for PC. I see no reason why, you guys are holding back. [EA] release FIFA for PC. Why would [EA] give us FIFA and not give us UFC [2]?

With just under 9,600 signatures at the time of writing, the petition is growing exponentially. However, there is yet to be an official announcement from EA with regards to a UFC 2 PC version.

If you'd be interested in getting a version of UFC 2 on PC, you can find the petition here. If you've been playing UFC 2 on console, or desperately want to have it on your PC, let us know what you think in the comments section below.

Player petition to bring UFC 2 to PC reaches 4,000 signatures https://www.gameskinny.com/ogpsj/player-petition-to-bring-ufc-2-to-pc-reaches-4000-signatures https://www.gameskinny.com/ogpsj/player-petition-to-bring-ufc-2-to-pc-reaches-4000-signatures Mon, 21 Mar 2016 05:16:30 -0400 Chrisator

EA Sports' UFC 2, which was released on March 15th of this year for PS4 and Xbox One, is yet to have a PC version. The previous installment of the game, which did not fare very well, also lacked a PC release, despite having both an iOS and Android version. 

UFC 2 seems to be a big step up from its predecessor, however. The game looks and feels much more realistic, houses a larger number of fighters, and provides for many different fighting styles. The combination of striking and ground game seen within the game, is also a step up from all previous martial art games on the market.

This is likely why PC gamers are hoping for a PC release, or at the very least a PC port. John Smith has created a petition on change.org for this very purpose, and has reached 4,100 signatures at the time of writing.  

"We would like EA UFC 2 to come to PC. There is an underserved market here. We like MMA. We like video games. If you make it, we will buy EA UFC 2 for PC."

He goes on to state that simply being able to play on 1080p resolutions with 60 FPS would be enough, so long as the players gain access to the actual game.

With EA developers often only looking at their own forums for fan feedback, it is uncertain how effective this petition can become. However, if you are also interested in a PC release for UFC 2, you should probably sign the petition here. Or for more information on the game, check out the official UFC 2 page.
