MLB The Show 21 has been rated for release on the PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 in Brazil, but there’s no mention of additional platforms just yet. Sony’s flagship baseball simulation had been expected to pitch to multiple platforms, but as Gematsu pointed out on Twitter, the original press release mentioned that the Sony San Diego developed title could arrive on non-PlayStation systems “as early as 2021”. With an ongoing global pandemic, the publisher may have opted to postpone until next year.
Whatever the case, the studio has promised news in February:
Ordinarily, the new MLB The Show game would be announced by now, but this has been a year like no other. Spring Training will return in late February, ahead of the new baseball season getting underway in April, so it’ll be interesting to see whether the game hits its traditional March release window. We’re just excited to see what the franchise looks like on next-gen hardware, because traditionally this has been one of the best looking series on console, and we’re expecting a gigantic jump.
