• 247 Sports: Everything We Know About EA SPORTS College Football

    Utilizing open records requests and sources close to EA SPORTS, 247sports.com's Brandon Marcello has been able to uncover the latest news surrounding EA SPORTS College Football. Some highlights:

    In line with previous reports, game development has ramped up in the final calendar year of a three-year development process which is still aiming for a July 2023 release. As of July 2022, developers were entering the final push in gathering art assets for all 130 FBS programs. Currently, on-air talent from ESPN (no names given or hinted) are recording commentary for the title.

    Industry leaders expect EA SPORTS to finalize a partnership with an NIL group deal this summer. As mentioned in the article, this could include OneTeam's partnership with OpenDorse.

    To no one's surprise, the game is being built on the Madden NFL engine but with tweaks and changes to fit the college game, similar to the formula for the NCAA Football franchise. The focus for year one is game design, atmosphere, and unique traditions for each program while playbooks will be more robust and team-specific.

    Finally, in terms of game features, Dynasty Mode and Road to Glory will appear in the title, while other modes (including Ultimate Team) could be added in later updates.

      I'm really interested in hearing everyone's stories in the last ten years. I'm guessing many are just like yours - and congrats on getting married! It seems each week a few more people return here, in the YouTube comments, etc. It's been really great to see.
