2021 NHL structure/schedule update

New season starts tomorrow and EA still hasnít updated the game to use the new divisions and new schedule?

What gives?

Re: 2021 NHL structure/schedule update

I really don't see them getting either of them in since it it is special for this season due to the pandemic. It would probably take a rather large update to the actual code in franchise mode to get in a shortened schedule and these new divisions. MLB the Show didn't get in the shortened season and I don't believe that NBA 2K got in the shortened 72 game season either but I can't confirm because I don't have the game yet.

You're right. No game has updated their schedule to account for covid specific seasons.

I'm guessing that it would take a rather large update to the coding of the modes that's why companies aren't doing it.

Re: 2021 NHL structure/schedule update

I still maintain that no sports game should make any adjustments for the pandemic. They should use old schedules like they have here and make the game its own universe. So much better than the adjusted ones.

Not to mention the coding that would likely be required. Have this many games for this season then adjust back to normal would require more work than it is worth.

Also I don't see a large number of people wanting their game to match their real world situation right now.

Games should be an escape from reality not further cementing it.

Too bad would have been nice to play the Canadian division in season mode.

Not a chance they update anything..

But, cant we adjust the divisions ourselves prior to starting a franchise? Move teams around etc.

You can, in Franchise divisions can be re-aligned and I'm sure you can swap teams around in season mode...
