    Given that anticipation for a new football game has been especially high in recent months, with Joe Montana Football 16 expected later this year and Mutant Football League coming at some point down the line, it's interesting to evaluate the market for such games. There have been so few unlicensed sports games to emerge over the last decade as companies have avoided the risk with development costs rising and consumers demanding all products meet a quality threshold which necessitates those...

    It's been nearly five years since a console football game last released that didn't carry with it NFL and NFLPA licensing.

The game has been so under-the-radar since that when pre-alpha footage (check it out here) was posted two weeks passed until any media site took notice. Creator and lead designer of the original Mutant League Football (released in 1993 on Sega Genesis) Michael Mendheim has been driving the development of the PS4/XB1/PC/iOS/Android reboot. During the Kickstarter campaign a t...
