They should really consider releasing these games in early February. It's around the time people get antsy for baseball. This would hold me over

It was definitely a February/early March release way back. The late March/early April releases have only been more recently. I definitely remember playing the new games at the start of spring training when I was really into this stuff years back.

I wonder if it was done to get the most accurate rosters?  But with updates these days, that wouldn't be a good reason anymore.

The Show 06 was released Feb 28th, the years after that came out Feb 27, March 4, March 3, March 2, March 8, March 6, March 5.

The Show 14 was April 1st, after that came March 31, March 29, March 28, etc etc.

The latest of all was The Show 21, April 20th.

So yeah, used to be a spring training release, now it's an opening day thing... I wonder if that's for marketing purposes, which would still be weird cuz you can release it for spring training for die hard fans and casual fans who are all about Opening Day hype will still have the opportunity to purchase it for opening day.

If you wanna laugh though, MLB 98, the first game of the series that evolved into The Show, was released July 1, 1997.

Honestly with all the events and promotions they do in the game centered around the high profile stuff anyways (All-Star Game, playoffs, HOF, etc), they should release it early March and then have a big Opening Day event a month later.

I think the main thing here is them trying to line up with as close to the Opening Day roster as possible at launch, but really that's just roster updates, so that shouldn't be a big deal, and people can switch and choose as they prefer.

Yeah, they should try to drum up interest in baseball in the 'dead" time before the season starts.

This seems off because when you buy the game it comes with a default roster but then you get an immediate online update so no matter when its released that opening day roster update is coming to anyone with an online connection. I'm saying it's not like a February release means you won't get an accurate Opening Day roster, that's coming regardless.

That's ... what I said.

Please read further and also no politics.
