Joe Montana Football 16 Uses Unreal Engine 4 but Fake Teams, Apparently

By   /   Mar 17, 2015

Back in July 2014 we got wind that Madden NFL was going to get a rival in Joe Montana Football 16 when the veteran player teased an image of himself from the game saying that “you have waited long enough.”

Now, we have another bit of interesting news on that front: the game is being developed with Unreal Engine 4!

This was revealed by Joseph Montana himself through his official Twitter profile (again) where he teased “it just got Unreal,” combined with Unreal Engine 4 hashtag and an in-game image with the engine’s logo.

So yeah, you can rest your head in peace when it comes to the graphics department – hopefully.

However, the image also struck open another debate in relation to the teams that it shows. Among the fans, the prospect of getting a choice between this and Madden has brought forth mixed reactions.

For instance, some are excited to find out what this would turn out to be while on the other hand there are some who’re sceptical about it.

Primarily, the scepticism is due to the fact that people don’t expect Joe Montana Football 16 to bring in real teams and most of the fans say they would rather not play with fake clubs.

If the said image is to be taken for granted, it is surely gives away that the NFL and the NFL Players Association has not officially licensed the game. Otherwise, why would they use fake players in that image!

This takes out any possibility of getting to play with any of the current NFL players in Joe Montana Football 16.

We will keep you updated on the development on Joe Montana Football 16 just as soon as something else comes up.
