    After some hand-wringing by fans wondering if their school would be in the game, EA SPORTS has confirmed that EA SPORTS College Football 25 will include all 134 FBS programs via clips posted on their social media accounts. Individual programs have been sharing their team graphic on their respective social media channels following EA's announcement.

    In addition, numerous ESPN personalities confirmed their involvement with the title via social media. These personalities include: Kevin Connors, Rece Davis, Chris Fowler, Kirk Herbstreit, Desmond Howard, Jesse Palmer, and David Pollack. It is currently unknown if or how the ESPN brand will be incorporated into the title.

    Other partners confirming involvement today include the CFB Playoff, the Big Ten Conference, the MAC, and - likely revealing a new feature - the Reese's Senior Bowl. The Senior Bowl's tweet mentioned both EA SPORTS College Football and Madden NFL, so, for example, a tie-in for created players from Road to Glory to Madden's Superstar Mode seems like a very real possibility. ...

    During Tuesday's Third Quarter Fiscal Year 2024 Earnings Conference Call, Electronic Arts reiterated that EA SPORTS College Football will be released in 'Summer 2024' via comments from both CEO Andrew Wilson and CFO Stuart Canfield.

    The last release of game information came in November 2022 via an ESPN.com article that contained an interview and several work-in-progress screenshots of Michigan Stadium and Brutus Buckeye. The long gap in official communication from EA SPORTS has led to growing concern within the community that the game may be delayed. These statements should help to alleviate such concerns.

    Wilson acknowledged that there is "an incredible amount of pent-up demand" for the title and that he believes EA CFB will be "both complementary in gameplay but overall additive to the [Madden NFL] ecosystem" as EA works to expand the football community in the US and internationally.

    Other noteworthy statements directly from EA included:
    - "In calendar 2023, Madden NFL was the best-selling sports game in North America" and "In Q3, net bookings grew and engagement with Ultimate Team increased 19%."
    - "Live services net bookings grew to a record $1.71 billion in Q3, up 3% year-over-year."
    - "On a trailing 12-month basis, total net bookings was up 8% year-over-year, with live services contributing $5.6 billion, or 73%."

    According to an anonymous image sent to YouTube creator Tubbylight, EA SPORTS filmed a commercial for EA SPORTS College Football at the Rose Bowl on January 23, 2024.

    In a YT video posted on January 24, the creator stated that he had received an anonymous e-mail with a picture showing a crew filming said commercial. In the image, a director's clapboard lists 'EA x CFB,' the director Trent Ubben, and cinematographer Seth MacMillan on camera. Ubben is co-founder of the production /creative agency The Rec League and has worked with EA SPORTS in the past, including such recent projects as the Madden NFL 23 Super Bowl prediction video, the Madden NFL 23 launch video, and the Madden NFL 21 and 20 cover athlete reveal videos. MacMillan is an award-winning cinematographer, specifically for the short film My Life Stopped at 15.

    On Instagram, Tubbylight was able to find a publicly shared video from a co-worker of the anonymous source showing a brief video of the production crew on the field preparing to film. A publicly shared image showed the crew in the stands of the Rose Bowl with a camera recording the San Gabriel Mountains outside the stadium. It appears the crew is also interviewing or preparing to interview someone as an unknown subject has a boom mic above them and is being lit for a camera.

    Given Ubben's history, it seems to be a strong possibility that this shoot may be for the cover athlete reveal or for a feature reveal video as he has created several of them previously for the company.
