Joe Montana Football 16 Teased

Well, we didn’t see this one coming. EA has had a lock on football games with their Madden series the past ten years since they purchased exclusivity rights from the NFL. As such, there’s hardly been any challengers in the realm — including former rival 2K. So leave it up to Joe Montana to lay down the gauntlet. Montana today teased the existence of a sequel to his 1991 Joe Montana Football in a tweet with the hashtags “#youvewaitedlongenough” and “#joemontanafootball16” along with the below image:

Unfortunately, that’s where the tweets about it stopped and Montana seemingly carried on like he didn’t just drop a giant bomb on the gaming world. Once released, it will mark the first game in the series in twenty years.

Now let’s just hope it’s not a mobile game.
