The highly anticipated UFC video game that has a current working title of “UFC 2009” finally has a general release date. The gaming giant THQ has set an initial launch date of Spring 2009 for at least the XBox 360 and Playstation 3 game consoles.

“UFC 2009” was originally announced back in July 2007, but there hadn’t been very many details since then. It was also mentioned that sometime during the UFC 84 Pay-Per-View broadcast that there would be some sort of announcement regarding the game, and we think that this was that announcement.

If you haven’t already seen the trailer for this UFC game, please make sure you check it out because it looks absolutely beautiful and we hope that the game play matches the graphics.

Here’s what Gamespot had to say about the upcoming UFC game:

That isn’t the only fight [WWE Legends of WrestleMania] for which THQ is spoiling, the publisher also addressed today the Ultimate Fighting Championship game, which has kept an exceptionally low profile since the 2007 E3 Media and Business Summit. That project will now see release in spring of 2009, and like Legends of Wrestlemania, its release will be tied to one of the UFC’s major events.
