    EA released a teaser trailer acknowledging the anticipation of fans who have been waiting over 10 years for a new simulation college football game. While no proper gameplay was revealed, EA did say the upcoming sports game will be called College Football 25, with confirmation that a full reveal will arrive in May ahead of its summer 2024 release window.

    The road to the next College Football game was bumpy for EA. After it announced its plans to feature NCAA players, a lawsuit was filed last June by the BrandR Group, an agency specializing in licensing deals for student-athletes. On3 reported last year that if a player opted-in to have their likeness used in College Football 25, the payout would have been $500 per player, which the agency argued in the lawsuit was far below market value. In December, EA announced it had settled the lawsuit and planned to release the next college football video game this summer.

    College Football 25 will be the first college football video game released since 2013, when EA canceled the series after it failed to resecure the NCAA license. A class-action lawsuit brought forth by former college athletes sued EA for the unauthorized use of their likeness. The lawsuit was settled in 2016 for $60 million.

    Feel free to say Gator football is irrelevant, but I saw three UF references - jersey, Gator head and helmet/jersey combo - in that short ad.

    I wonder if it will include the Transfer Portal, NIL, and Bowl Game Opt Outs. After all, "If it's in the game, it's in the game."

    It's not irrelevant, far from it, which is precisely why all the "we are an average program" or "you need to lower your expectations" stuff is BS.

    Whatever. It will suck like all their offerings and be all about "Ultimate Team" or some equivalent of that. Probably better off buying a PS3 and sticking with NCAA14.

    You know it will, all behind a nice paywall of micro transactions.

    I have been waiting for this game for 10 years. I can’t believe it’s been that long.

    The college football games have always had a different feel than Madden. Madden25 and NCAA 14 were two vastly different games. I am hopeful that will continue. I really hope they don’t bring the crappy music that Madden has. I tend to go into the jukebox setting and deselect all of them

    Do they have shady guys paying nil to get your roster?

    I started to tag you in the other thread on the Gator Bytes board. I'm really hoping it will be cross-platform. I'm pretty sure it will be.

    Hopefully there is a Tampering setting you can turn off in the menu, lol.

    NCAA 14 was a magnificent game. Here's hoping this one isn't a Madden port ... they've said it isn't and that some of the original dev guys are back on this one. It all rides on Dynasty and the editor. Excited to see something, even if it's a lame trailer.

    They kind of should because that is the game now, but I hate it hope that we will at least have the option to turn all that junk off.

    Only haters from other schools say that about the Gators. We're down a bit, sure, but we're NOT out...

    If this game was out last year, I would have taken out my frustrations from the Arkansas game on it.

    Excited to carry on my lifelong tradition, since Bill Walsh college football, of never punting. I still play 14 weekly.

    The real benefit of this game is a new generation of kids will learn - school traditions, fight songs, players, coaches etc.. There seems to be a new phenomena with kid ls under 24 that “knowing anything older than 6 months” is unheard of. Music, politics, pop culture and sports are all about right now and there’s almost a disdain for any reference points. Hopefully this game starts building a knowledge base
