Fight Night Round 4 is set to have its servers closed after over 10 years and people believe that means we're getting Fight Night Round 5 sometime soon.
It's been over 10 years since EA Sports brought out Fight Night Round 4 for the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 and it would be a surprise if many people were still playing the game, especially online.
However on Wednesday EA announced they were shutting servers down for the game at the beginning of 2020. In an email EA said, "Hello Fight Night Round 4 fans, After 11 years of an incredible online community, the daily active playerbase in Fight Night Round 4 has reached a very low number and we can no longer ensure a quality online experience.
"As of March 9, 2020, the Fight Night Round 4 servers will be retired. After this date, you'll still be able to play the offline modes on Playstation 3 and Xbox 360. Thanks for your continued support."
The news has left some believing that the servers have been shut down now, despite there likely being not many players in the last few years, with a Fight Night Round 5 around the corner.

1) I can't believe anyone is still playing Fight Night Round 4 eleven years after it launched.
2) This definitely means it's time for Fight Night Round 5. pic.twitter.com/6ULZ2MjVsG

Couldn't last forever I guess. Well overdue a new one in the series tho.
@EASPORTS, there's no better time than NOW to create a new Fight Night. Too many great fighters in various weight classes. As for the story mode, you can't get better than the come up of @anthonyfjoshua. You don't have to like him to know its true. MAKE IT HAPPEN!!! #Round5- ABGN (@_idowuo) December 9, 2019
Fight Night Round 4 was legit my favourite game growing up. There are too many talented boxers in the game for this to not happen https://t.co/8BDBSgGzQY- ABGN (@_idowuo) December 9, 2019
Since Fight Night 4's release for the old gen consoles we've have new generation Playstation 4 and Xbox One come out and Playstation 5 is looking likely for this time next year.
There's also been versions of FIFA, NHL and Madden every year whilst UFC has also been added to the roster of games EA brings out.
Fight Night has only had the one more edition since 2009 in 2011's Fight Night Champion which was a darker version of the rest of the franchise.
Do you want to see a new Fight Night?
