‘EA Sports College Football’ Plans 2024 Kickoff

  • The extremely popular franchise is returning a year later than the originally reported 2023.
  • EA is building the new game from scratch.

Fans will have to wait a little longer for one of the most highly anticipated sports video games in recent memory.

The release of “EA Sports College Football” will be delayed until 2024, as first reported by Extra Points.

The video game behemoth made waves in June when it announced that it was rebooting its extremely popular college football franchise for a July 2023 drop.

  • The last edition of the title was “NCAA Football 14,” released in July 2013.
  • According to ESPN, the EA team is officially announcing the release for 2024 due to “the totality of the undertaking of creating the game from scratch.”
  • EA Sports’ vice president and general manager Daryl Holt claims that previously reported release dates were conjecture.

Work in Progress

“That’s the best date for us to bring the game that we think is going to meet or exceed our player expectations,” said Holt, “and cover the breadth and scale of what we want in the game. We’re trying to build a very immersive college football experience.”

Once the game is released, it will have a new name and — due to new NIL regulations — will also likely allow players to appear under their real names for the first time.
