EA Sports College Football video game release date announced

EA Sports Collegiate Football

EA Sports announced last February that it was bringing back its beloved college football video game, to the delight of college football fans around the world.

Since the announcement, the name, likeness, and likeness may have made things even easier for EA since the NCAA can no longer regulate financial compensation for athletes.

After all, the reason why the game was shut down NCAA 14th was because players whose likeness was used in the video game could not be compensated for it and a lawsuit arose that forced EA to shut it down.

With that problem out of the way, this is what we’re going to get college football title in 2023, and a recent Open Record Request from Extra Points With Matt Brown may have revealed the release date.

Among the documents found was EA Sports’ proposal for the new game, which reads:

“EA’s goal is to release a standalone college football game in July 2023, enabling the two-year game development window required for game resource gathering and gameplay development to meet current market demands for a unique college football game.” football game while following NCAA guidelines.”

In a separate document, EA said that “game development is in full swing” and that the “launch goal is still summer 2023”.

The last major hurdle standing in the way of this game becoming what EA envisions is the ability to pay athletes for their in-game likeness. In order to do that, EA needs to secure a group license, which could prove difficult considering there isn’t an overarching entity like a players’ union or tariff group to handle this type of transaction.

However, Brown has some promising news in his report on the matter.

“I’ve been told that there is optimism that the framework for a video game group license for college football players could be announced as early as this summer‘ writes Brown. “There was some hope that it could have happened even sooner, but some upheaval in the college group licensing industry has made things a little bit more complicated. I’m told that when the framework of an agreement is announced, the licensing agent won’t have nearly every college football player, but will hope to sign the rest after securing the rights for a critical mass of athletes .

If for some reason EA can’t strike some kind of collective bargaining agreement with the players, there’s still a plan to launch the game.

“In the very unlikely event that EA is unable to secure gamelikes, the video game is still scheduled to be released.‘ says Brown. “But it won’t include every single FBS program. Also, according to the 2021 memo, such a game would not include the ability to edit rosters.”

Either way, the return of the EA Sports College Football title seems imminent, and that alone is cause for celebration.
