This morning, EA Sports NCAA Football posted something very odd and cryptic onto Facebook after not having posted for quite some time. It was an extremely short clip depicting the beep of a lifeline. Most took the post as a meaningful way to announce the return of the franchise, NCAA Football.

Our heart still beats for the big game... #NationalChampionship

The original post had only showcased the video and did not include any comment from EA. But after the Facebook page exploded, EA edited their post.

In 2013, EA was forced to shut down NCAA Football because players weren’t getting paid for their likeness to characters in the game. People erupted on Twitter after hearing news of the strange post.


While some people responded in anger, others rejoiced at the thought of NCAA Football returning.


In all honesty, how did EA think people would translate the video of a beeping pulse on a Facebook page that has been dormant—or dead—for some time now? According to Fanbuzz, EA did respond to Senior Editor, Owen Good, of Polygon.


Turns out it was just a huge misunderstanding and everyone’s dreams of an NCAA Football revival were crushed. Shame on EA’s social team for putting out that post without any sort of description. Now fans will just have to keep waiting and wishing.
