As of yet, there is no confirmed release date for Maximum Football, but the promise is that the game will arrive in 2023.


As showcased in the trailer, the gameplay looks well-developed and in a positive place, with the game likely set to arrive later this year.

Early Access has been confirmed for the game, with the website confirming that further details will be revealed in the coming months.


The announcement trailer for Maximum Football dropped in February 2023, confirming the game will launch later this year.

Confirmed to be using Unreal Engine 5, Maximum football showcased crisp gameplay and impressive cinematics in the trailer.

Customisation tools were also showcased, with the game promising you full autonomy over your team:

'Fully customize your team, recruit your dream roster, and take it to the gridiron locally or online as you build your legacy. Tight, rewarding moves allow players to feel the true sensation of being on the field and smooth, responsive controls mean every play is performed as planned. Live service content ensures fresh chances to up your game as you rise through the ranks to take your place beside the legends.'


Maximum Football will be completely free-to-play and will not include any loot boxes, as confirmed in the FAQS section of the website.

As confirmed on the site:

'Our goal for Maximum Football and moving to a free-to-play model is to ensure the game is available, playable, and most importantly enjoyable for the widest possible audience - free or otherwise.'

What is Maximum Football?

Maximum Football is following in the footsteps of games like eFootball, hoping to prove a free-to-play experience for players at any level.


The game will rival Madden in one sense but is far more focussed on creating a tailored and specialised experience for the player.

The promotional wording on their website gives us an indication of intentions:

'Lead your team to victory in the ultimate football simulation! Start your college career or play with the pros across varied and dynamic stadiums around the country. As head coach, make all the decisions, from drafting your roster to calling the plays. The Maximum Football universe has been completely overhauled to deliver players an ultrarealistic experience that is entirely free to play.'

The game will release in 2023 and promises to bring a new flavour to the football gaming sphere.
