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.
