EA’s Return to College Football Arrives This July, Cover Revealed

EA Sports has officially revealed the cover athletes for College Football 25 along with a Summer release date for fans to mark down!

The long awaited return of College Football gaming is nearly here. Today, EA Sports revealed the cover for College Football 25 (which may have leaked out a smidge earlier this week) along with a July 19th release date. Tomorrow will bring about a more complete reveal of the game complete with details on gameplay and a trailer to boot.

Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: EA), in advance of the game’s full reveal tomorrow, today unveiled the historic covers of EA SPORTS™ College Football 25, which feature a trio of current college football stars – Michigan running back Donovan Edwards, Texas quarterback Quinn Ewers, and Colorado wide receiver/defensive back Travis Hunter. Fans can soon experience explosive gameplay variety across 134 FBS schools and immerse themselves in the iconic atmospheres of college football when EA SPORTS College Football 25 launches worldwide on July 19 on PlayStation®5 and Xbox Series X|S.


“Donovan, Quinn and Travis are extraordinary talents who impressed and entertained millions of college football fans on the field last season and are poised to do so again this year,” said Daryl Holt, SVP and Group GM, EA SPORTS. “We’re proud to be able to incorporate thousands of current athletes in College Football 25, and featuring this trio of playmakers and their iconic college programs on the cover is a perfect fit as we usher in a new era for EA SPORTS and college football. I can’t wait for the world to learn more about the game tomorrow.”


All the cover stars built enviable resumes last season. Edwards excelled in the Wolverines’ national championship run last season, where he became the first player in College Football Playoff (CFP) history with two rushing touchdowns of 40-plus yards in the title game. Ewers, one of the top quarterbacks in the nation, led the Longhorns to a 12-2 record and a Big 12 Championship last year, while Hunter is one of the most exciting two-way players in college football history and stands as the only FBS player in at least the last 20 seasons to record 100 yards receiving and an interception in the same game.


“EA SPORTS games are legendary and to see myself on the cover of College Football 25 is truly surreal,” said Edwards. “It’s a huge honor to join past Michigan greats as a cover athlete on an EA SPORTS college football game and keep the tradition going.”


“To represent the burnt orange on the real and virtual gridirons is such an honor. EA SPORTS games were the first place I lived out my childhood dream of playing for the Longhorns, so it’s a full-circle moment to now be on the cover of College Football 25,” said Ewers.


“I couldn’t be more pumped to be part of College Football 25 and represent my Buffaloes on the cover of a game with so much excitement behind it,” said Hunter. “I can’t wait to play and see myself, my teammates and my school in the game.”

College Football 25 hits PlayStation and Xbox Series S|X on July 19, 2024. Pre-orders for the standard and deluxe versions of the game are live now, where you can snag the EA Sports MVP Bundle.
