Back in 2009, Cyanide released a web based version of Front Page Sports Football, but don't be mistaken, this wasn't a remake of the Sierra Online versions many of us played in the 90's. In fact, in 2009, when we interviewed the Producer, Régis Robin, he had this to say:
With that said, Cyanide is set to bring Front Page Sports Football back again this year for PC users, before the season officially kicks off. We are trying to line up an interview, so if you have have any questions, feel free to post them here.
