The game was discontinued in 2013 amid disputes about NIL, player likeness being in the game, and athlete compensation. With the modern age of NIL, and players being able to be paid for their name, image, and likeness, it opened the door for the return of the college football video game that was loved by so many fans for years.

On Friday, EA Sports released more news about the game, with the gaming company releasing official covers on Thursday.

Additionally, EA put out official gameplay from College Football 25 in a cinematic trailer.

During the gameplay trailer, Alabama made a handful of appearances. Alabama's defense and the turnover belt were highlighted, as well as the upcoming Alabama and Georgia game. Jalen Milroe was sacked in the video by Georgia linebacker Mykel Williams. On the next play, EA Sports paid tribute to the historic 4th and 31 play from Alabama's Iron Bowl win over Auburn with Milroe finding a player in the back left corner of the endzone.

The official release date for the game will be Friday, July 19.
