The XFL was on track to finish its season and was actively building a devoted fan base nationally before the Coronavirus pandemic swept through the United States and shut down the league. Now, there’s new information that the virus outbreak kept XFL fans from something else…a video game.
Back in June we reported on the XFL Had Talks With Doug Flutie Maximum Football About XFL Video Game. But we never saw what the game actually looked like. That is until now.
Are the pictures as detailed as Madden 21? No.
Are the graphics cutting edge? Absolutely not.
But it’s 2020 and there are still people streaming to thousands of people on YouTube and Twitch playing NCAA Football 2014, a game that with all due respect, looks like it was finger painted.
XFL fans would have embraced the game, because it’s theirs.
When you dive into the background behind the screenshots you find out that the game design was being done inside Doug Flutie’s Maximum Football. A game that was created to work around the restrictions of why we no longer get NCAA video games. It’s different, not as smooth or visually appealing as Madden video games of past years, but it is fully customizable and that is how we’re able to get league logos and players names in-game.
At its base, these are not prototype screenshots of an XFL video game, and rather the XFL’s intellectual property and players worked into the game design of a completely separate and independent football game.
