With the 2022 MLB season over, it's time to look to the future and the upcoming release of MLB The Show 23.

The baseball season will be back in action soon, so find out when the next title will come out so you can get on MLB The Show 23 as soon as possible!

When does MLB The Show 23 come out?

There is still no official announcement for when MLB The Show 23 will be released, but we can make a very educated guess on when it will likely come out.

For years (14 in a row), the franchise has launched the annual new title in March or April, just as the baseball season nears.

MLB The Show has mainly dropped in March, however, in the past couple of years it has been April, and we don't see that changing with 23.

Our prediction is that MLB The Show 23 will have a release date of Tuesday, April 4, 2023.

This would mirror the release of MLB The Show 22, which came on Tuesday, April 5, 2022.

Obviously, this could change as we await official confirmation, but for now, it's the most likely MLB The Show 23 release date we can offer.

Pre-Order, Early Access & Tech Test

Although the worldwide release of MLB The Show 23 is still months away, there should be opportunities for gamers to get on the title earlier if wanted.

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 four days of Early Access.


There may also be a limited access Technical Test, which we've seen employed by Sony San Diego for 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.
