Out Of The Park Baseball Newsbeat

How the Out of the Park Baseball team plans to expand with live services

“[We want you to be] able to compete in a league with other people in ladders, moving up the ladder and being able to differentiate yourself that way,” he said.

...

So OOTP is experimenting and thinking up ways for people to engage with its two sports sims without requiring a download. It isn’t announcing any specifics about how that might work for now, but the company is looking around at what other games are doing. At the same time, the studio doesn’t want to screw up something good for its regular fans. The player reviews for Out of the Park Baseball 18 on the Steam PC gaming service are 92 percent positive. That’s worth a lot to OOTP, so it doesn’t want to lose those people because it is chasing after another crowd.

“The No. 1 thing we have to do is make sure our core fans, who have been with us for close to 20 years, remain with us,” said Grisham. “That’s absolutely the most important thing.”
