Most of that video is just EA graphics. They don’t even have an NCAA license so its literally just a college game not an NCAA game but websites like operationsports.com would work to customize and add rosters to make it accurate so maybe it doesn’t need to have the license. What I do want to see is larger rosters than the 65 that NCAA stuck us with so recruiting can be more accurate.

Think we've heard this one already, haven't we?

Maybe it'll come out and maybe it'll even be ok. Not ready to wave a flag for this, though.

The demise of the EA NCAA Football is one of the great examples of unintended consequences in the modern age. People say "let it burn" but then stuff they like gets burned down too. The O'Bannon decision was cheered by most people as a shot across the NCAA's bow, but most never thought about what would happen if that went through. 

Oh well, at least the last one has a Michigan Man on the cover.

This gets posted every few weeks. The project is likely a scam. The game will either never come out or it will be a buggy piece of shit. The developers have no coding experience.

That's quite a ways out still. The way video games are made now that is both a lot of time for them to work on it and a lot of time for them to give up on it. I'd love a new ncaa football game, but I'm not gonna hold my breath on this one.

The idea of this actually makes sense tho because you can create a basic college football game without licencing and then let the internet do what it does.

You'll have a file to upload with a realistic NCAA landscape in like a day.

I’ve been following these guys from the beginning. I have faith that they’ll bring it back. Then after a year or two of sales they’ll go try for licensing and usual yearly updates.

Most people have no clue the effort and $$$ it takes to produce a good console video game these days. They are basically like movies.

I highly doubt this will work out.

PSA: this game is probably not actually going to make it to release. And if it does, it's going to suck. Hate to be a Debby Downer, but that's just the reality. It's hard to make good video games. EA had it's issues, but they have the resources and talent to make a halfway decent football sim. These guys don't. End of story.

As with all of these endeavors, I don't really care how they look in demo videos.  Getting all of the mechanics down for an enjoyable playing experience are way more important, and that always seems to be the issue.  

I don't know this company at all, but looking at their pretty bare-bones site and knowing similar outfits, what they'll do is offshore this project to a super-cheap sweat shop in Eastern Europe or India, pump out a mediocre game, and then hope they can cash in enough from pre-sales to make it worth their while.

I'm not optimistic.
