It’s been a little while since we’ve heard any news on the status of EA Sports College Football, but there is an update to bring fans on the game’s development. The company has hired two members of the College Football Revamped mod community to join the development team.
“Today we are excited to share with you that two of our contributors are joining the EA Sports College Football team,” the mod team announced on the mod’s Discord server.
Known by their online names “Slab” and “igloo”, the two members will be joining the game as an artist and producer, respectively.
In a post on Twitter, “Slab” — real name Sam LaBell — said it was a dream come true for a “die-hard fan” of the EA Sports NCAA Football series.
“My opportunity with EA wouldn’t have been possible without this mod,” he said on about being a part of College Football Revamped. “Great group of passionate people working wonders on a game so many of us cherish. Excited to see what they’re able to do moving forward!”
Ever since my brother gifted me NCAA 2004 when I was 7 years old, I’ve been a die-hard fan of the series.
I’m excited to share my dream will be coming true: tomorrow I will begin working with @EASPORTSCollege on the next College Football game as a UI Artist. pic.twitter.com/tFmDnHlIoh

If you don’t know, College Football Revamped is a community-driven mod for EA Sports NCAA Football 14. The mod, which is currently on version 11 in development, features update teams, logos, jerseys, stadiums, and even broadcast graphics. It’s available for free for anyone with a copy of the game for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, or PC via an emulator.
With two prominent members of the community working on the new EA Sports College football, it’d be safe to wonder about the status of College Football Revamped. The team behind the mod says that development will continue with the team in place.
“College Football Revamped will continue to release our regularly scheduled update,” the release said. “We have lots of great content in the pipeline, so, as always, stay tuned for that.”
With the game still a couple years away, updates are expected to remain slow for the time being. But SGO will bring you any new information on EA Sports College Football development as it becomes available.
