RBI Baseball 16 coming this spring

Posted January 23rd, 2016 at 11:15 am


The reboot of RBI Baseball will be returning for its third season. MLBAM announced today that RBI Baseball 16 will release this spring on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC and mobile. It remains the only licensed MLB game on XB1, but has recently been joined by the terrific unlicensed Super Mega Baseball to give fans at least a choice of games on the console.

It has been a rough return for the series, with the game having been met coldly due to lack of features, poor post-release support, high price, and lackluster gameplay. The version made for consoles has felt very much like a port of a mobile game. RBI 14 and RBI 15 both landed in the mid-40s on Metacritic.

New features for RBI Baseball 16 include the ability to dive and make wall catches in the field, improved defensive AI, an improved batting system, plus the usual enhanced lighting and graphics. Mookie Betts of the Boston Red Sox is the frontman for this year’s game.
