EA – It’s in the game! But will it be? The new Jets jerseys are still weeks away, yet the launch of arguably the most anticipated video game for Winnipegers everywhere, NHL 12, is scheduled for September 13, just shy of a month before the start of the NHL season.
While we suspect the jerseys will be unveiled before that time the question remains will they be in the game?
One line of thought is that EA will just do a mock up design to start with and offer the actual design as a download as soon as possible. The image above is one such example how it could look and is not an official NHL 12 screen shot.
The other train of thought is that EA could be given access to the jersey design before public release, after the look is finalized and being put into production. True North might be a little skeptical to do this after the leak of the Jets logo. The more people that have access to the jersey design, the more opportunity it has to be leaked.
One thing that is certain is just as many Winnipeg fans will be lining up to be the first ones to buy NHL 12 as they have been for the shirts and hats that are currently on sale. I know we’ll be buying a copy and playing it right up to the start of the season and the WhiteOut Road Trip.
Until then lets hope it truly is “In the Game”
