The NFL is releasing its first VR game, promising to immerse fans in gridiron action like never before.

For 34 years, EA's Madden NFL franchise has featured the NFL.

The NFL is now working on an NFL-licensed virtual-reality simulation video game with StatusPro, a sports tech and gaming startup that specialises in extended reality experiences using athlete data.

The game will be playable on Meta Quest and Sony's PlayStation VR headsets, but no other details are available.

The league and StatusPro claim the game lets users “experience the life of a professional football player in first-person 3D.” Release dates and prices will be announced later.

“Our partnership with StatusPro allows us to explore a new immersive version of NFL gaming with support of the two largest VR platforms within this emerging space,” said Joe Ruggiero

Andrew “Hawk” Hawkins and Troy Jones, co-founders of StatusPro, both played football in college and in the NFL.
