No franchise mode in All-Pro Football 2K8

Shut up!

2K Sports wants you to “play the game and shut up”. Apparently that means play in something other than franchise mode because the game won’t have it. This comes as more news breaks from the Game Informer preview.

“Although the developer won’t go into detail about the game’s league structure, we know there won’t be a franchise mode. No guiding your team through multiple years or drafting for the future.”

Another thing that many were taking for granted to be included in All-Pro Football 2K8, another thing scratched off the list. This one is baffling. Pretty much every sports game has some form of a franchise mode, and certainly the more hardcore fans which were disappointed by the lack of customization tend to favor the franchise experience.

The game seems to be shaping up to be online centric. The interview does mention how the online options will go beyond the standard ones people expect.

No franchise mode is just another slap in the face to the hardcore fans who have supported and championed the 2K football franchise over the past couple years. Hey…but everyone should just shut up and play right? Unfortunately the game has not been released yet which makes it difficult to play. So all anyone can do is talk about it, and so far reaction has been less than favorable.
