Probably never, as they'll just renew it continually.

The 15 year contract to use ESPN in games ends in January 2020, and the NFL contract runs through the end of 2013.

They'll probably renew it. The NFL prefers exclusive licenses, especially after what Take-Two did with NFL 2K5.

The APF2K8 game engine is still better than Madden and 2K could compete with a custom game using that but since they are soo inept and cannot even produce good licensed sports games other than the NBA why bother.
Even though sports gamer's are dying for a great football game everyone just runs like cowards from EA's monopoly and will not even try , just the pathetic state of the entire sports gaming industry really

You must be from an alternate universe. Over here on Earth Prime NFL 2K5 wasn't so hot and most of us were happy to get the real players back on the Madden turf.
