After it leaked out over the weekend, that Fernando Tatis Jr. would be the cover athlete for MLB The Show 21, we figured today would be the day it became official. The PlayStation Blog made the announcement this morning, confirming the game would be coming to PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S on April 20.
The current gen Standard Edition (PlayStation 4, Xbox One) will cost $59.99, while the next gen Standard Edition (PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S) will cost $69.99. Noted in the blog, there will be no standard edition upgrade path from current gen to next gen.
More information on the Collector’s Edition is scheduled to arrive on February 3, including details on the Digital Deluxe Edition.
