Sony Interactive Entertainment and San Diego Studios will soon reveal the baseball simulation MLB The Show 21. The new part will actually appear for the Xbox One, as confirmed by the leaked cover art.
Already in December 2019, there were indications that the baseball simulation MLB The Show 21 will one day also appear for the Xbox and Nintendo platforms. At that time, Sony Interactive Entertainment, San Diego Studio, Major League Baseball (MLB) and the Major League Baseball Players Association (MLBPA) signed a new license agreement to develop further titles of the series.
However, Sony Interactive Entertainment had to agree to publish the PlayStation-exclusive brand for other platforms in the future in order to reach more players. Even if an official unveiling of MLB The Show 21 is still pending, the official cover arts have already leaked.
This tells us that MLB The Show 21 will be released for PlayStation 5 and Xbox One. Accordingly, it could be that the next-gen version will be released exclusively for the PlayStation console. An official confirmation is still pending.
You can also see this year’s cover athlete. This is Fernando Tatis Jr. of the San Diego Padres. The shortstop was able to excel with outstanding performances last season and is one of the best young players and rising stars in baseball. The official unveiling of the cover athlete is due to take place later in the day.
It is also not yet known whether a Nintendo Switch version of the new part will actually appear. As soon as the official announcement of MLB The Show 21 is made, we will update you.
