Footy fans have been calling for it and now they’ve got it.
A brand new AFL video game is coming to Play Station 4, Xbox One and PC.
The game, called AFL Evolution, will feature the league’s top players and is due for release in the first half of 2017.

AFL Evolution will be produced by Wicked Witch Software in conjunction with licensee Tru Blu Entertainment, who produced AFL Live 2 in 2013, the most recent major AFL video game.
“For some time the AFL has identified a need to create a new video game as another entertainment property for footy fans,” AFL general manager of commercial operations Darren Birch said.
