Default Boxing game?

Any plans for making a boxing game? I mean, I totally get that you guys aren't into the sport as much as you are with pro wrestling and MMA but I think you could probably put together a pretty great boxing sim using the engine for the latter. I'd say I could get involved but I have no idea what languages y'all use and I'm not sure you could afford me besides.

We should all contribute some way, get a Kickstarter going. jk I am just so supportive of this idea. There are not many boxing sims out there and the games that do exist are not very good. World boxing manager on steam is brutal.

I have played it a lot. I even wrote a mod for it several years ago. 2013 is buggy as crap and 2 isn't supported. I guess they're in beta for 3 now so that's good.

I can't speak for whether GDS would ever do a boxing game in the future, but there definitely wouldn't be one from me / using a modified WMMA engine simply because I have no interest in the sport. I'm sure the company would be pleased to hear from quality developers who might want to explore that option though as it likely would be a popular addition.

I have been waiting for a proper boxing sim for years. Title Bout doesn't really appeal to me in its current form, so I'm hoping for either an evolution of that title or something new altogether.

I have occasionally considered taking the project on myself, but sadly I don't think I have enough free time at the moment to create something worthwhile.

I agree, Title Bout is missing a career and dynamic evolving world. It's a great foundation, but it's nowhere near what I want.

Make of this what you will - a play through on the new career mode in TBCB
http://www.pisd.co.uk/forums/viewtop...p=48578#p48578

Slightly underwhelmed as it looks very basic, although tbf the kid didn’t really allow you to see any of the mechanics.

But looks like something will be coming out soon

Finally something. Didn't think any real update was ever going to happen because it has been so long. Still not convinced until we can play it.

The game we have played for years is pretty solid but like everybody else says, it is the career mode that has been missing. Never really feels like there is a real direction in the game unless you have the imagination and the time to put into it. All becomes a bit too much.

Even if it's close to being complete, competiton brings the best out of developers. I would still like to see an option #2. There are numberous American Football simulators and they all still remain sub-par.

Frankly, basic is OK with me if it's not buggy as crap the way TBCB2013 is.

I would love a boxing sim in the same vein as WMMA. There's nothing in sight for a big publisher like EA or 2K, so I feel like it's a void desperate to be filled.

Boxing is really on the upswing, so I expect there to be a large market for boxing simulators in the near future. I think we're in a true Renaissance period for the sport, with as much talent as the sport has ever seen and a genuine interest by promoters to grow boxing rather than bleed it dry. It's exciting.
