With the likely MLB The Show 23 release date fast approaching, it's time to take a look ahead and what's in store for fans.

Taking a closer look at the reveal schedule of the last few years, our MLB The Show 23 release date and early access predictions will let you know when to be on the lookout for news.


MLB The Show 23 Release Date Prediction

While they've branched out on the consoles department over the last few years, Sony San Diego will probably stay as consistent as ever when it comes to the launch of MLB The Show 23.

For years, the longstanding MLB The Show franchise has aimed for an annual new title launched in March or April as baseball season nears.

These release dates leaned more towards March for some time, but April has become the standard in the last few years to great success.

Based on recent years, our prediction has the MLB The Show 23 release date as Tuesday, April 4, 2023.

This would matchup perfectly with the Tuesday, April 5, 2022 release date used for MLB The Show 22 and allow for a nearly identical hype period.

This could change, but as of now it's the most likely MLB The Show 23 release date until we can get official confirmation from the developer.


Pre Order Early Access & Tech Test

The primary MLB The Show 23 release date will mark when it becomes available worldwide, but there are likely to be a few other ways to get in on the action.

While it won't be confirmed until the game and its various editions are announced, we expect those who pre order a deluxe edition of MLB The Show 23 will once again receive 4 days of Early Access.

This would make the potential MLB The Show 23 early access release date as early as Friday, April 1, 2023 if our predictions hold true.


There also may be a limited access Technical Test, which we've seen employed by Sony San Diego the last few years to test out server load ahead of launch.

These have been both open and closed with an invite required, but hopes are high that we'll get another open access beta and Tech Test for players to enjoy in the weeks heading towards a worldwide launch.

Should they go forward with even an open access Tech Test, it'll likely still be limited to only a few game modes with a multiplayer focus as they hold off the biggest reveals for launch.

However, the biggest advantage of that Tech Test is often the opportunity to try out the next year's gameplay first hand while it also helps Sony San Diego fine tune things.
