Everything You Need To Know About The New Boxing Video Game 2022 Might Not Get

To the applause of fight fans worldwide, Steel City Interactive embarked on a quest years ago. They laid out their goal clearly and plainly; to bring back and revolutionise the boxing game experience with a focus on simulation. Somehow, it’s still seemingly a bad time for video game boxing.

The Scheffield group has set forth ambitious objectives to bring about their promises, successfully procuring the likenesses of an impressive number of professional fighters. Playing as a famous fighter who has already carved out a legendary path is exciting once in a while, but really only a fraction of the possible avenues of enjoyment in a game marketed to true boxing fans. The ESBC boxing game roster might be taking the lion’s share of funding, while actual gameplay and graphics appear to suffer from the looks of Steel City Interactive’s coordinated social media releases.

The tried and bruised strategy of releasing snippets of gameplay has faltered multiple times, but it still seems a viable route for the time being. Twitter users are venting their frustration at a seeming lack of innovation past previous boxing video games:

This user isn’t wrong; the high resolution still images Steel City Interactive has been releasing to maintain interest in their project look great, but also look nothing like the fighters in the clips of gameplay that the audience has been shown. The first few times this was witnessed, it was barely noticed, and even eventually tolerated.

Undisputed boxing game footage is lackluster and disappointing

But with seemingly no improvement to actual gameplay, or even gameplay footage shown in the past years of developer promises, the patience of fans of boxing video games is starting to wear thin.

The one thing consistently echoed among fight fans is the ESBC Undisputed release date. 
Every time there’s a full round boxing gameplay release from Steel City Interactive, it’s been met with mixed reviews. Some people are so starved for new boxing video game content they’re seemingly willing to try just about anything to scratch the eleven year itch:

But most are so disappointed that they have to keep playing Fight Night Champion while waiting for ESBC Undisputed that their suspicions of failure are starting to finally boiling over.
