More details on RTTS and Franchise for MLB The Show 20

Posted February 14th, 2020 at 9:00 am

The developer stream for MLB The Show 20 centered on Road to the Show and Franchise Mode was held yesterday putting on display the new additions and improvements. The RTTS enhancements look to be intriguing as relationships with teammates now play a role, immediate upgrades to ratings, and new in-game challenges that influence the outcome of games.

Unfortunately it’s shaping up to be another disappointing year for Franchise Mode. Limited rebranding rather than the “relocation” being advertised that utilizes the atrocious Diamond Dynasty creation tool is the only new feature of note beyond the named minor leaguers. The development focus that for many years has been heavily on Diamond Dynasty is probably seeing a further shift away from Franchise with March to October now competing for resources.
