We've definitely been keeping a close eye on the progress of UFL since it was revealed last year, and although it was being advertised for a 2022 release all this time, it's not the biggest surprise to hear that it's now delayed until 2023.
This was revealed in a social media update by the team, explaining that the game is around 80% complete at the time of recording, but they need a little longer to refine areas such as the core mechanics and AI behaviour:
If you haven't been keeping track, UFL will be a free-to-play game that prides itself on being 'Fair to Play', with plans to integrate an Ultimate Team style mode at launch, complete with co-op play and the ability to play offline games as well.
The team says playtests will begin this December, so we may still get to play it this year after all...
