San Diego Studio has provided an update for those of you asking about the implementation of the new 60-game season schedule.
The new 60-game schedule will be mirrored in Play Now Live mode only. Unfortunately, the team did not have adequate time to properly implement the schedule change in other modes, without the risk of damaging modes and save files.
The season length, rules, schedule, and roster sizes will remain as they would for a normal 162-game season. Extra innings and crowd sizes will also remain the same.
With that said, here are some details on upcoming content for MLB The Show 20:
- Roster updates are back! But to be more in line with the shorter more action packed season, roster attribute updates will now be weekly, compared to our usual bi-weekly updates.
- Topps Now moments return! Relive the best plays, comebacks and walk-offs of the week to unlock Topps Now player rewards to use on your Diamond Dynasty squad.
- Monthly Awards will crown the best performances from around the league each month in new Programs. Jump into missions and moments to earn the Lightning player of the month.
