    Since the creation of the Transfer Portal in 2018, it has become the most immediate, high impact way for a college football program to try and turn around their fortunes. Conversely, it can also see a program suffer a roster exodus, stymying any progress or depleting a position.

    In the NCAA Football franchise and in the pre-Portal world, Recruiting was the lifeblood of a program. Success or failure depended on the evaluation and development of talent with minimal transfers. Now, the floodgates are open and programs can get immediate help on their roster through the Transfer Portal to establish depth or even a starter. Some programs (Pitt in regards to Jordan Addison leaving for USC, for example) would argue that other schools are tampering with players in part with Name, Image, Likeness policies to pull players away.

    As important as Recruiting was in NCAA Football, the Transfer Portal may be even more so in EA SPORTS College Football. Its inclusion seems all but a given in year one and should add an entirely new dynamic to Dynasty Mode. The Transfer Portal will undoubtedly be the most anticipated new feature within Dynasty Mode, and for good reason. Based on community feedback and seeing the Transfer Portal in action for several seasons, here are some key aspects we would like to see reflected for the mode in the video game as well as some questions we have on how it might work.

    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.
