NHL 21 is on the corner, in this article, we are going to talk about NHL 21's Release Date, PS5 & Xbox Series X, Cover Star and more.
NHL 21 release date
As yet, there is no firm release date for NHL 21. But we can take an educated guess. NHL 20 dropped on 13 September, and NHL 18 came out on 15 September. So that area of the calendar is certainly the frontrunner, however it could be earlier. NHL 19 arrived on 26 July. That super-early release date would certainly be a delight for NHL fans that are going without their fix of hockey action right now. Given the current work-from-home world we live in that early release date is surely just wishful thinking right now.
It may come as a surprise, but Sidney Crosby has never been on an NHL cover. Considering he has been regarded as one of the best players of all time since 2005 this rather odd. There have been multiple rumors and speculation by fans that Crosby has told EA no multiple times about being on the cover. Last year’s cover star was the electric forward from the Toronto Maple Leafs, Auston Matthew. Last year’s cover star was the electric forward from the Toronto Maple Leafs, Auston Matthews. That should continue this year, with notable players such as Germany’s Leon Draisaitl and the Czech Republic’s David Pastrnak looking to get the nod on covers away from the US.
Price and Platforms
Expect the usual price point of $59.99 USD when NHL 21 release, as well there will be some special editions so keep your eyes peeled. The NHL series has only ever released on console so expect it to be on the Xbox One and PS4. With the next generation consoles coming, maybe we will see copies available on the Xbox Series X and PS5 when they release! Unfortunately, don’t expect NHL 21 to arrive on either Nintendo Switch or PC.
Is an overhaul pending? Players have felt that EA has taken no competition as a sign to ease off. Their delivery for Pro mode degrading down the last two years. Fans want to be connected to the player and want a better story mode. If EA will be blind to the criticism and not listen to players, they might get some stick in return.
