MLB The Show 21 Trailer

MLB The Show 21 should be an incredible step up for baseball gaming, hitting next gen consoles and hopefully taking advantage of its capabilities.

So what do we know about the game so far?

Latest News - Reveal Coming in February

San Diego Studio have announced that the next major piece of MLB The Show 21 news will be revealed in February.

This could mean something as simple as a roadmap giving fans a look into when the game will arrive, to as hype as an MLB The Show 21 Announcement Trailer!

Release Date

MLB The Show games typically arrive around March, just in time for baseball season to start kicking up.

We do have some concerns for MLB The Show 21's release date, however, as San Diego Studio has revealed that they will not be giving any news about the game until 2021.

ARE DELAYS COMING?: This message from San Diego Studio could mean a later release than usual for MLB The Show 21

If the studio won't reveal anything about MLB The Show 2021 until January, it's hard to expect a fully finished game by the usual March.

While it isn't out of the question, this gives a sense that a general delay is coming for the next major baseball sim game.

MLB The Show 21 Cover Athlete

MLB The Show 21 has plenty of options for its cover athlete with tons of standout talent still waiting for their first cover spot.

PERKS OF THE POSITION: The MLB The Show 21 Cover Athlete will be a monster in-game

MLB The Show 20 featured Cubs star Javier Baez, which made for the shortstop's first video game cover of his career.

But who will earn the MLB The Show 21 cover athlete slot?

The two obvious choices would be the 2020 MLB AL and NL MVPs, Jose Abreu and Freddie Freeman.

While neither of these superstars competed for the World Series this year, we expect one of the two will be on the cover of this year's game.

MLB The Show 21 Trailer

MLB The Show hype usually kicks off with a massive reveal trailer, and we expect more of the same in 2021.

While it would be amazing to be surprised right when 2021 arrives, we expect the first MLB The Show 21 trailer may instead arrive in late January.
