Franchise relocation makes it’s debut in MLB The Show 20, while Online Leagues return to the series for the first time since MLB The Show 17.┬áThe news was revealed casually in Sony San Diego’s developer livestream schedule announcement.

Franchise relocation will feature fill team branding, allowing players to not only move the team to a new city, but new logos and team names can be chosen as well. There’s not much more known about it at this time, but fans will get full details during the February 13th stream. Keep the fingers crossed that the team creation suite featured in Diamond Dynasty makes its way to Franchise Mode.

As far as Online Leagues are concerned, that announcement was even vaguer. “Simple and flexible leagues with your friends” is the exact phrasing used in the posting. Revealed in full on February 27th, one can only hope that it’s more of an online franchise with multiple seasons, offseasons, etc. as opposed to a single-year league that needs to be restarted after a season is over.
