Something rugby-related is in the works at Eko Software!

While rugby fans are eagerly awaiting a new oval-ball title, it appears that Eko Software are hard at work on a follow-up to Rugby 18.

The revelation comes from a photo which was spotted on Twitter and posted by Jean-Georges Levieux, producer at Eko Software, which shows a rugby ball and motion capture studio, with the caption “Here we go!”.

Now, there’s no specific details other than the initial photo, but it’s likely that Eko Software is working on Rugby 19 or perhaps a World Cup game, given that the 2019 Rugby World Cup is not that far away and tournament-themed games released around the same time have been common-place for a while now.

Rugby 18 released in October last year to some mixed reviews, with a lot of issues letting down a promising core gameplay system. After a large patch, the gameplay improved dramatically, but certain shortcomings still kept the game from reaching its potential. Hopefully the next instalment will rectify those problems, and we’ll have a great rugby game on our hands.

Here’s a larger version of the photo:
