Any new games from different sports

Postby Zaphenomenalone » Mon Apr 08, 2019 1:40 am

What are the chances we are going to see the catalog of sport games expand? Would love to see the Wolverine take on MMA or Boxing.

I’ve always been interested in a boxing sim. What would you like to see in that type of game if WS were to make one? I’d love a career mode for sure.

With boxing it's hard. I prefer the overall management idea. You are a company that runs shows. But boxing is a sport where not only are their different organizations (Golden Boy, Top Rank) which are comparable to MMA organizations (UFC, Bellator), have to work together a lot of times to make fights happens. In an MMA sim you could have your own company and just compete with other companies for talent. But in boxing you'd have to have companies that interact with other companies while still competing. The only way I can see you doing a career sim where you played as a single boxer is if you ignored all of that. Maybe someone smarter than me could figure out the game mechanics to make that work but I see that being very difficult to accurately portray the current world of boxing in a deep career mode.

As you can see I could talk about these types of games all day. Hopefully there is someone equally as passionate about these sports at Wolverine.

I definitely think there is the ability to do a career sim as a great-a-boxer type of game as well as a management type game where you run one company, sign boxers and try to elevate them up the ranks. With the way the boxing world is right now, I think any sim would have to be a bit watered down and just create x number of boxers for each weight class and have them battle it out as they all try to climb the ranks with the possibility to change weight classes as well.
