The first next generation Rugby title is in development at Canadian-based HB Studios, which previously created Rugby World Cup 2011.
Rugby 15 will exclusively feature the official licences for the TOP 14 and PRO D2 professional rugby leagues.
“With this new sport simulation we are pursuing our strategy of moving upmarket with strong licences and quality partnerships, as with HB Studios,” declared Alain Falc, CEO of Bigben Interactive. “Today it gives us great pleasure to announce the very first rugby game on new generation consoles with the TOP 14 and the PRO D2, thanks to the support of the Ligue Nationale de Rugby (French Rugby Association). We are certain that fans of the sport will enjoy it!”
The game will feature teams from the 2014/2015 season.
