We haven’t had a new college football video game in several years. That will be changing very soon.
EA Sports hired new employees to work on its classic college football video game.
There have been numerous leaks pointing to a targeted 2023 release for EA Sports College Football. We now have confirmation as Extra Points with Matt Brown filed an Open Record Request regarding EA Sports’ proposal and it appears the company is targeting next July for its release month.
“EA’s aim is to release a stand-alone college football game in July of 2023, allowing for the two-year game development window necessary for collecting game assets and developing game play to meet the current market demands for a unique college football game while following NCAA guidelines,” the proposal read, via Extra Points with Matt Brown.
The proposal also states that EA Sports’ development for this NCAA Football game is in “full swing.”
In 2014, UCLA basketball coach Ed O’Bannon and 19 student-athletes filed a lawsuit against the NCAA, Collegiate Licensing Company, and EA Sports, claiming that the organizations violated United States antitrust laws by not allowing athletes to get a share of the revenues generated from the use of their images in broadcasts and video games.
EA Sports stopped producing NCAA Football games after 2013.
