More details. Not expected to come out this year. it’s in early development. And of course no actual player likeness will be used.

Great news, however it sucks that players still won't see any payment. Actual names/likenesses or not, they should be compensated.

Ditto. I miss the NCAA Basketball series. Those were really fun. I know 2K tried it, but it ended up bombing.

So what is a likeness? They never did use the names or faces of the players. Do all of the players have to have the same character model now?

They probably SHOULD do this so they don't lose another gigantic class action lawsuit lol. But to answer your question if they made the QB for Clemson a tall white guy with long hair, that's gonna get them sued. You can't make a character look exactly like Trevor Lawrence and just name them something else to get around paying royalties. The character models can't have any similarity to the players or else they'll lose another lawsuit.

OR.... they could, ya know, pay the athletes their fair share to use the real likenesses?

Yeah; I'd imagine they also won't put a real player on the cover this time unless it's a player that recently went pro like Burrow.

Isn't that always what they did? Usually the cover athlete was somebody who had graduated the previous year.

I believe the way around "likeness" is the fantastic online community, right? No less than 20 people are going to have the entire 2022-2025 class of players ready for download on day 1.

But why get excited about it? It's EA - they destroy everything. They absolutely murdered UFC 4.

Notre Dame says they are out until the rules about player compensation are finalized.

And that's what's going to get them shut down again, even if they didn't produce it themselves. I imagine they will at least early on really restrict roster customization (or sharing) which is going to drive people away.
