XFL Had Talks With Doug Flutie Maximum Football About XFL Video Game

According to Sam Schwartzstein, the former Directory of Football Operations for the XFL. The XFL had talks with Doug Flutie Maximum Football. These talks were for the XFL to build a video game down the stretch. It is unclear how far these talks went but this proves even more how the XFL was thriving before the pandemic forced a season cancellation. 

According to Schwartzstein, the XFL also had minimal talks with 2K but a deal was much further down the line. Behind EA, 2K is arguably the second biggest sports gaming company, its most notable game being NBA2K. 

According to their website, Doug Flutie Maximum Football is a game where players;

“Select your league format (130 US teams or 27 Canadian teams) and create your own College Football universe by customizing every team, player, uniform and logo. Recruit the next College superstar, dominate the rankings and earn your way into a Bowl or Playoff game.”

It looks like the XFL would have just inserted their player data, teams and logos into the platform for a custom XFL game.

Unfortunately, the XFL was canceled before a video game deal could be reached, but hopefully, if the league is bought we could see a video game on the way.

    You know what “fantasy football” is?

    It’s the idea put forth by this site that the XFL was “thriving” when its economic indicators were trending in the wrong direction.

    I know your continued ability to play in this sandbox depends on keeping that fantasy alive, along with the one that someone will buy the league and try again to lose millions of dollars.

    But it’s silly.

      According to which economic ‘indicators’? In the actual numbers published in the bankruptcy filing, they were meeting expectations prior to COVID. I’m curious what your agenda is with even presence on this website. It seems you hate the league, like there’s something personal there. I understand trolls exist but this far into the shuttering of the league? It’s weird.
