New RBI Baseball Hitting All the Platforms This Spring
The defunct RBI Baseball franchise, notable for being the first baseball game with an MLBPA license, allowing it to use real player names, is making its return to the stage this year for the first time since 1995. RBI Baseball 14 is being developed by MLB Advanced Media — an actual arm of the Major Leagues that runs its online presence, which makes this whole “console game development” thing pretty outlandish — on “current and next generation consoles and smartphones and tablets.” So RBI Baseball is returning with a vengeance, it seams.
Being an official MLB production it will naturally carry all the baseball licenses that most people will want, but there’s not really any other info about it right now. Just this: it will be out this spring on all the platforms they can make it for.
This comes in the wake of 2K announcing last week they’re dropping MLB 2K without putting out an edition this year. I doubt these announcements were made in such close proximity by mere coincidence.
