No doubt! Remind me of the anticipated release time? I'm trying to get my "fix" in the meantime with online play of Madden 19 CFM

Is this game cancelled??

Football season is already upon us. I've been looking forward to this release but no news at all since April?

We're more than a month away from the end of the summer. Be patient. There's absolutely no reason to believe this game isn't coming. Jim has had 8 successful releases of FOF over the last 20 years. FWIW, typically he finishes the development between late October and mid-December. Details of past release dates can be found here.

He actually said this at the end of the message. "We'll keep you posted!"


Unless I am missing a post he has not kept us posted

I read "we'll keep you posted" as a follow-on to the previous sentence--that there'd be another update in late summer/early fall. While that may not fit your definition of "keep you posted," it's pretty clearly the one defined in that post. I wouldn't expect to hear anything until then.

the lack of news or updates is very concerning. OOTP seems to really have dropped the ball on this football game.

Guys, all is good. Development is progressing, Jim and Chris are working on the game full time. And we have a solid plan how the V1 release will be rolled out. We will share more about the game and have the proper announcement once we are ready to accept pre-orders, but this is still a few months away.

Once the official announcement is made, we'll engage in active discussions and answer all your questions

In the meantime, the folks at Wolverine Studios have you covered. I've been playing their stuff lately. It's pretty good. The College basketball game seems almost as immersive as OOTP.

I've played FOF before, and I love the idea of that game with a more user-friendly interface. Can't wait!

Has anyone mentioned whether the game will have high school, college and pro leagues in the same 'universe', OOTP style? It'd be awesome to finally be able to follow guys through the whole journey in a sim. FOF was pro only though.

Is it reasonable to assume that the first version under OOTP will just be "FOF but pretty", and then maybe they'll develop more OOTP-like features in future?

I think it is definitely safe to say it will not have all the features and customization of OOTP 19. But I also think it's safe to say it won't just be identical to the last version of FOF with a new interface. There will surely be new features.

I just got a PS4 and hadn't played a Madden game in like 6 years so I bought Madden 19. I naively thought they might have removed a lot of the small stupid errors here and there, but instead there's MORE crap. The gameplay itself is much tougher and I was more interested in treating it like a game of OOTP (I loved NFL Head Coach 09 and stuff like that), which it's OK for that. But reading this gets me excited! Definitely not buying another EA football game.
