GOALS is an upcoming football title made by a Swedish triple-A development team. So far, the game has been under wraps, but the devs have given fans little snippets here and there. While GOALS doesn’t have an official release date yet, a new investment into the game’s development is set to fast-track it to release.
GOALS Gains Huge Investment
Reddit Founder Alexis Ohanian is leading a massive investment of $20M to help the development of GOALS. The acquisition is set to increase the staff and ramp up the game’s development.
“What drew us to GOALS was the team’s vigorous ambition and the intention behind its plan to reach it,” said Alexis Ohanian.
“The studio is on a mission to bring a fun football game to the masses and to eliminate any barriers or inequities that may exist for players, no matter where they live or what hardware they’re running. It’s been amazing to not only see the progress GOALS has made so far, but to also play it for ourselves. There’s a ton of potential in the team’s approach to design and technology that can extend well beyond this first game and football entirely.”
With the deal now officially closed, GOALS has now secured up to $39M in total investment. For a team that was working on a free-to-play football title with limited funds only a few short weeks ago, this is a massive change to the development of the game. This is very promising for the overall creation and ensures that the game will be coming sometime soon.
What is GOALS?
GOALS is a free-to-play football game that will give players various ways to enjoy the world’s game. The game will feature 11v11 matches with versus and co-op. In addition, the team is adding a 5v5 mode where players are user-controlled, similar to FIFA‘s Volta Football. The upcoming football title will be available for PC, consoles and support cross-play at launch.
