EA Sports College Football could be released in July of 2023 if internal documentation from the CLC obtained by Extra Points’ Matt Brown is accurate.
When EA announced the return of College Football last month, they mentioned more information would be released, as development progressed in the next couple of years. So really, this isn’t too surprising and EA hasn’t confirmed anything as of yet.
Here are some of the details that were previously revealed.
- Deliver authentic college football experiences and the high quality gameplay that fans have long loved in college football games from EA Sports
- Through the CLC partnership, the franchise will include the rights to more than 100 institutions featuring the logos, stadiums, uniforms, gameday traditions and more that fans have come to know and love
- While this college game will not include student-athlete names, images and likenesses, EA Sports is continuing to watch those developments closely
Notre Dame previously announced they will not be part of EA Sports College Football until name, image and likeness (NIL) rules have been finalized. Here’s the official quote from University Vice President, Jack Swarbrick and Director of Athletics, James E. Rohr.
Northwestern, Tulane and Fresno State have made similar announcements. NIL rules will be in place well before EA Sports College Football is released, so any team that makes a similar announcement will have plenty of time to make a decision to be part of the game.

Matt posted an article on Extra Points this morning, providing more information, from the proposal the CLC sent to FBS institutions, in regards to EA Sports College Football. It’s a paid article, so please refrain from just copying and pasting the entire article here.
He points out potential DLC and other game features that could be included.
