RBI Baseball Returning in 2014

RBI Baseball 14

[adsense250itp]RBI Baseball 14 is set to release in Spring 2014 for “current and next generation consoles and mobile devices,” Major League Baseball Advanced Media announced in a press release.

The game is being developed by MLB Advanced Media, which serves as MLB’s interactive division. MLB Advanced Media is a partnership between all 30 MLB teams and currently runs and

No further information has been announced but interested players are encouraged to check back on the game’s official website.

RBI Baseball 14 is expected to fill the baseball void left by the cancellation of the MLB 2K franchise. Take-Two Interactive and MLB extended a partnership last year that resulted in MLB 2K13 – a game that was essentially a carbon copy of MLB 2K12 – but failed to do the same in 2014, leaving Xbox consoles without an MLB game. The Sony-produced MLB: The Show franchise is a PlayStation exclusive.

It is not known if RBI Baseball 14 will be a full-on sim or an arcade experience.

MLB Advanced Media is reviving a franchise that has been dead for nearly two decades. Namco originally developed RBI Baseball, which debuted in Japan in 1986 and in the U.S. in 1988. The franchise spawned several sequels, culminating with the simultaneous release of RBI Baseball 95 for the 32X and Super RBI Baseball for SNES in 1995.

Our Take:

With no MLB game coming to Xbox One or Xbox 360, MLB decided to take matters into their own hands. It is not known how long RBI Baseball 14 has been in development but chances are, it has not been very long. Regardless, it will at least give Xbox owners an option for baseball gaming.

RBI Baseball was a solid franchise when it existed. While it will likely struggle to compete with MLB 14: The Show in its first year of existence, the name recognition and support from MLB will certainly help.
