It’s been a long, strange road for EA Sports College Football 25. The franchise’s last installment was 2013’s NCAA Football 14, and following that game’s release, EA, the CLC, and the NCAA were hit with lawsuits surrounding player likenesses.

Essentially, players weren’t being paid for their likenesses being in EA’s games due to a rule instated by the NCAA, and a player brought a lawsuit against the companies in 2014, demanding royalties for his appearance in a game.

However, the NCAA ruled in 2019 that players games-once-again”>could profit from their likenesses, thus paving the way for college sports video games to return. EA Sports College Football 25 is one such game, and it’ll feature more than 10,000 athletes, according to EA Sports.

Reports originally suggested that EA Sports College Football 25 was slated for a 2023 release and was delayed to 2024, but EA Sports’ Daryl Holt refuted those claims in an interview in which he confirmed the game would launch this year.

In any case, EA Sports FC 24 is set for a July 19th release on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S. A full reveal is coming tomorrow, so stay tuned for more.
