MLB The Show 21 has been confirmed to exist, but San Diego Studio notably hasn’t stated whether next year’s installment will still be confined solely to PlayStation hardware.
Around this time every year, the team over at San Diego Studio tends to reveal next year’s iteration of MLB The Show, namely in the form of a cover unveiling of some sort. Well, rather than doing this same strategy in 2020, San Diego Studio is mixing things up.
In a brief message that was posted to Twitter today, MLB The Show 21 was confirmed to be coming next year with the unveiling of a basic logo. No additional details of the project were given. San Diego Studio said that, instead, it will be looking to share more info “in 2021.” In the interim, the studio encouraged existing MLB The Show players to keep an eye out for more content headed to the current entry in the series.

The details of the announcement made it sound as though the ongoing pandemic could be one reason for the delay in showing off more of MLB The Show 21 right now, but there could be another factor in play as well. For those who don’t remember, Major League Baseball signed a new contract with Sony last year that would allow San Diego Studio to continue working on MLB The Show. However, the biggest change in the contract is that the series would no longer be confined to PlayStation hardware alone. The deal also made clear that future MLB The Show entries could start appearing on new platforms in as early as 2021.
With this in mind, perhaps the reason why San Diego Studio didn’t announce any specific details on MLB The Show 21 today is because it has more boisterous plans in the works. It’s important to note that even though the existence of next year’s title was confirmed today, specific platforms for release still weren’t given, meaning that this coming season could be the first in which we see the annualized baseball sim arriving on locations such as Xbox, Switch, and PC.
If you’re looking to pick MLB The Show 21 up on platforms outside of PlayStation next year, I wouldn’t get too excited just yet, but there does seem to be a decent chance that the game could be heading to new hardware. We’ll keep you updated on this story as it continues to develop over the coming months.
