A new survey has been sent out by EA Sports to select customers providing insight on what is being considered for NHL 19 and beyond. These surveys have been distributed for various games in the past and have been shown to reflect ideas that may already be in a stage of development, with the results helping EA determine what makes the final product and what is scrapped or held for future editions. The plan for the arcade mode NHL Threes for instance was first discovered through one of the surveys in 2015 before being introduced in NHL 18.

Areas of focus for NHL 19 could be in the game’s presentation, career mode, All-Time teams, Franchise Mode scouting, and player differentiation.

    I haven’t bought an NHL game since about 2012, but if they bring in 500 Legends I might pick 2019 up.

    i vote for the all-time teams (500 legends) as well…..also i really miss the winter classic mode too, in 13 you had 2 venues to choose from and could use any teams.

    NHL2K7 for PS3 has create player Legends option. We have to create the players and dig up information as to height weight etc and choose our own skill ratings, but the announcer will say the players names if listed. Have to edit players though. I create players for different games most recently for Madden some a bit silly. I’m going to add Frank Sinatra for New Jersey as RB to play with created Joe Namath.

    Haven’t played an NHL game for like 20 years but what a good idea to put out a survey to gauge consumer preferences
