AFL Evolution will be a fully-licensed game from Tru Blu Entertainment and Wicked Witch Software, featuring the teams and players of the AFL.
“So for some time the AFL has identified a need to create a new video game as another entertainment property for footy fans,” AFL general manager of commercial operations, Darren Birch, said via the AFL’s official website. “AFL Evolution will deliver a unique experience for footy fans, taking them to the heart of the action in a virtual footy world. ”
In addition to the announcement of the game, the AFL also revealed that fans get to vote for the cover athlete. Voting can be done on the AFL’s website, and it closes on December 22.
