With a bit of googling a saw there was a new big ant rugby game being made apparently (if the interweb can be trusted).

Not holding out any faith though, every game since rugby 08 has had less features and a lot of non licensed teams but I’m sure there will be a money spinner World Cup 23 game that’s rubbish.

yeah wouldn't be surprised if there is at least one game next year to tie in with the rugby world cup. Maybe we will two a rugby 23 and then big ant or wicked witch making a game as well

Ross, the CEO of Big Ant has mentioned a few times on Twitter that they are working on a game. Big Ant were bought by Nacon, who published Rugby 22 so looks like Big Ant have taken over development from EKO Software. Never played it but Rugby League Live 4 looked like a decent game and they have done a great job with their cricket games. My hope is that Wicked Witch won’t be producing another game so the licenses they have will be freed up however if we get Big Ants customisation tools I won’t be too bothered

The problem they will face is that with the amount of rubbish games people have had and the top quality of other sports games people play, I think a lot of people will stay away from the game if it’s not all singing and dancing.

They really need a good amount of licences and/or a customisation hub so people can easily share teams across all platforms.
They also need a proper career mode which the recent games seem to focus so little on but is such an important part of the game.

But I’m guessing we will get a half baked game just in time for the wc which won’t sell well because it’s just not good enough in todays gaming market.
