Rugby 08 confirmation ?

Discussion in 'Rugby Video Games & Apps' started by knowsleyroader, Apr 18, 2007.

  1. Just heard a little whisper that certain parties outside of EA should be getting a look at Ruby 08 around the June mark. Its also likely that release would be September.

    Regardless of these dates there is some definate confirmation now that this title exists and more importantly is definately set for a release.

    P.S Put the question mark in the title as no one needs to take this as gospel, its just your standard forum user info.

    Also heard that so far there is only confirmation of a PS2 title in, respect of Sony consoles at least. I would take it as given that there will also be at the least an xbox and pc version.

    P.P.S Lox will back up the above info FWIW.

    I hope they dont change the Game Engine? that means i will have to wait for an importer or hex things into the game! But it is good news there is another EA Rugby. . . . . . :bravo:

    That is awesome news....but September seems so far away. Do you reckon they've utilised the extra development time, or just started development on the game later?

    i doubt hb-studios/ea would have used the extra time for development. they just want to release the game near rwc time.

    Give me Rugby 06 with Late Tackles, a more realistic/deeper World League mode (even if you just split up the World League into a North and South Conference and have players age/retire/new young guns prop up) and online play i'll be happy.

    The Gamesman has the same date as Gameplanet. No Xbox 360 version listed at the moment though.

    If its coming out in July in NZ we should be hearing about the game now surely? Looks like us Brits are going to have to wait a bit longer!

    My feeling is that the game won't be a big 'revolutionary' step up from rugby 06, which is no bad thing. Like all EA sports games a new 'big feature' will be introduced, similar to impact players, and off-loads on 06. This year it might be the big D, like Madden or a new career mode. My fear is that the basic gameplay won't improve as much as it should because the formula has already been set. They'll tweak it but basically its all about adding more features. Anyway lets see what happens in the coming weeks!! :)
