Introducing our MLB The Show 21 cover athlete Fernando Tatis Jr.

The MLB 2020 season had a different look to it but, one thing remained consistent; the play was as epic as ever. It was a year in which new talent announced itself to the world, flipping bats, dancing and bringing plenty of electric moments to the game. Arguably, no one did this better than the MLB The Show cover athlete Fernando “El Nino” Tatis Jr.

MLB® The Show™ 21 launches on April 20, 2021. The Standard Edition on current gen consoles is $59.99 USD/$79.99 CAD/£59.99 GBP/€69.99 EUR MSRP, and on next gen consoles is $69.99 USD/$89.99 CAD/£69.99 GBP/€79.99 EUR MSRP. 

We’re excited to share that, with our announced extension with the MLB® and MLB Players, MLB The Show 21 will be available for players on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S. This is a very exciting moment for all of us as the storied franchise will be accessible to more gamers than before. We would like to thank everyone at PlayStation, Xbox, Major League Baseball, Major League Baseball Players Association and the San Diego Studio for working diligently to bring MLB The Show to more users.

MLB The Show 21 Feature Premieres 

To keep everyone safe as we continue to adapt to the current global pandemic, we have had to make some changes to how we reveal and share all the new features and updates to the game. This year we will be rolling out Feature Premiere, which will be broadcasting simultaneously across Twitch, YouTube and Facebook Live. The Feature Premieres will be a great opportunity for us to show our fans what we have been working on that makes this year’s game better than its predecessor. For MLB The Show 21, we plan on posting around six Feature Premieres with the first one being released in March. 

Pre-order now and be ready for action.
