It’s been two years since the last Super Mega Baseball game was released, and it’ll be at least one more until fans get another.
In a reply to a user on Twitter, the game’s official account stated that “next chapter” of the Super Mega Baseball series will be coming next spring.
“We’re excited to bring the next chapter in the SMB series to our community next Spring and will be sharing more information on launch timing at a later date,” the post reads.
The next installment of the series will be the first under the EA Sports umbrella. EA acquired developer Metalhead Software in May 2021.
For those concerned about what that’ll mean for the series, it was confirmed to SGO shortly after the purchase that not much will change from a development standpoint.
According to a rep from the company, Metalhead will continue as it has been with the same studio leadership in Victoria, BC. The only thing that’s changing on that front is having EA behind the studio, which brings a larger reach and, ultimately, larger support financially.
The most recent release in the franchise, Super Mega Baseball 3, is available now for Steam, Xbox, PlayStation, and Nintendo Switch. Those with EA Play can download the game as part of their subscription.

What are you hoping for with the return of Super Mega Baseball? Let us know in the comment section below, and take the discussion further at the official SGO Discord server.
Not a lot to improve on. Hmmm..how about more interactive stuff ? Umps getting hit with line drives. Breakable stuff in the bleachers , It’s always hilarious when the pitcher or batter gets beaned 🙂 More of that with updated graphics just about covers it. Some new pitches perhaps ? Just don’t alter the basic mechanics or physics !!
Home run derby in super Mega baseball 4! Fingers crossed!
if EA is behind it, it will be garbage. EA will destroy the franchise.
I love SMB3 as well as the first 2 games. I would like to see more stadiums, maybe MLB Stadiums. Also, a Stadium creator platform, where the players can make up their own stadiums with their own ideas. Allow players to have more control over creating teams, leagues and logos. Put the game in the players hands and let us have some fun. I look forward to seeing the EA version of SMB and what they will bring. This is the company that makes Madden NFL Football with all sorts of ways the players have more control, such as the franchise free agency changes, it looks great. EA, please make SMB as great as Madden. I have always enjoyed EA Sports Games, I have all Madden NFL Games since 1988! Speaking of Madden, bring back the Super Bowl Teams for replay, like in the beginning. Thank you, Jim
you actually support EA??? Wow! They are horrendous
We all have our own opinion. I have always like EA and will continue. They continue to improve and try their best. I will continue to purchase Madden for as long as they continue to develop the game each year. Back in the day I played football with shaky little creatures that were not human. Now I see a figure that resembles a human. I do not play their racing games, basketball, soccer, etc. Not into them. But when you see where football came from and where EA has it today, yes I think EA does a good job!
you are an idiot, period!
