Overhauled franchise and not just tweaked. Hopefully SDS added a lot of options to customize. That would go further than anything else to make the mode deeper, IMO

Overhauled franchise mode has me excited. It's been in desperate need of an overhaul. More stat tracking would be so nice.

Very excited to hear more about the revamped franchise mode. Maybe custom draft classes? I am a bit worried that retractable roof stadiums will still only be open being that I imagined it probably would of been announced already.

Commentary and Franchise. All I need. AHHH! So excited. Hopefully everything from offline franchise makes it to Online. That would be great. Me and my buddy got 8 seasons deep last year.

Not necessarily. Not all features have been announced. I would wait until the fact sheet comes out or if Ramone confirms anything before then.

This is all fine and good, but are they finally going to expand career stat tracking this year?
 
# 11 mlblover15 @ 12/27/14 03:54 PM
and does improved franchise mode affect cross over year to year save files for this mode or do they just affect new franchises started actually in 15?

Cross over saves will get whatever features that are in future versions. Otherwise there would be absolutely no point to it.

Load times were absolutely agonizing in 2014. Anything here will be greatly appreciated.

I'm glad for revamped commentary, especially if it's paying more attention to season progress and good transitions between player names and canned phrases (in particular with custom player names). MLB 2K was actually good at making commentary sound somewhat fluid.

the only information that is known is what has been released and discussed in the forums.

Overhauled Franchise mode and revamped commentary jumped out at me and I am glad they worked on Franchise mode this year. I want to know more about the new human IK engine.

Well, they are not even sure how much they are supposed to sell the game for. So that is to be determined how much they really know!
