MLB Manager 2015 Features Official License and More

Game to be Released on Android and iOS in March 2015

Out of the Park Developments today announced that MLB Manager 2015 will feature an official license when it's released for Android and iOS at the Google Play Store and Apple App Store, respectively, in March 2015. Like Out of the Park Baseball 16, which was unveiled on January 23, 2015, MLB Manager 2015 will feature the official Major League Baseball logo, as well as official logos for all 30 MLB teams and historical MLB logos. (OOTP 16 will also include over 150 Minor League Baseball team logos as well as MLB and MiLB player jerseys with team logos.)

MLB Manager 2015 will also feature Opening Day rosters, a Shop a Player function, and other new additions detailed below. The game will offer the most immersive experience for armchair baseball GMs who want to guide their favorite teams to glory on mobile devices. It will sell for $4.99, with historical seasons available as in-app purchases.

"We're thrilled that MLB Manager 2015 will follow in OOTP 16's footsteps with a feature that will help it stand out among other mobile baseball games," said MLB Manager lead developer Sebastian Palkowski. "Between the license and all the other great new features, MLB Manager remains the perfect way to get in a little baseball managing while on the go."

In addition to the license and iOS and Android support, MLB Manager 2015 will also include these features:

• 2015 Opening Day rosters: Each team will have its projected 40-man Opening Day roster, as well as 20-25 top prospects, for a total of 60-65 players. A subsequent free update will include the official Opening Day rosters.

• Shop a Player: This option was brought over from OOTP to allow GMs to suggest a player for a possible trade and field offers from other teams.

• Simulate to Date X: GMs can now simulate to a specific date, and a new Don't Disturb feature allows uninterrupted long-term sims.

• Player Shortlist: GMs can now add players to their shortlists so they can quickly return to their profiles any time. It's a useful feature for tracking players' careers after they leave a team.

• Career Stats Leader Boards: Retired players with 10 or more years of experience automatically join the career leader boards for home runs, strikeouts, and other stats.

• Improved In-Game Subs: When a GM makes a substitution during a game, they can easily see the current game situation.

• Better Trading AI: AI-controlled GMs make better trade offers.

MLB Manager's predecessor, iOOTP Baseball 2014, is now available for free at the Apple App Store.
