The long-in-development, oft-delayed reboot of EA Sports College Football, which has been fervently anticipated by gridiron fans for years, could finally be unveiled this coming week – according to a report by 247Sports. The site claims “sources” have told it that new information about the title will be unveiled during Michigan’s championship match against Washington in Houston on Monday, 8th January.
The game doesn’t have an official release date, but is allegedly due out this summer on PS5, so we can’t think of a better time for the publisher to fully peel back the curtain on the long-awaited project. Development of this game has been conducted separately to the annual Madden NFL series, so many fans are hoping it represents something of a reboot for the genre’s tried and trusted gameplay. It’s also expected to capture all of the unique pageantry of college football, which should help set it apart from its pro football peers.
