"Tennis World Tour" - New video game from the creators of Topspin 4 announced

Imo this is probably as close to Topspin 5 as we are ever going to get.
A lot of the developers behind Topspin 4 are involved in this new project - including the Producer.

They are promising more than 30 playable tennis stars, including Kerber, Muguruza and Federer. For comparision Topspin 4 ony had 25 in total.

I am very excited because "Tennis World Tour" seems like a pure passion project!
Also I can't wait for to see how good the graphics are going to be The last big tennis game was all the way back in 2011... Graphics have come so far since then.

The release date is set for 2018.

IGBEN AND BREAKPOINT STUDIO ANNOUNCE TENNIS WORLD TOUR


Lesquin, May 18th, 2017. Bigben and Breakpoint are pleased to announce Tennis World Tour, the new standard for tennis games, due for release in 2018 on consoles and PC.

In order to make the best possible game and match players' expectations, the studio has brought in an experienced team which has worked on the "Top Spin" license.

Pierre André, Game Designer on Tennis World Tour and former Producer on "Top Spin 4": "For years we've wanted to create a new tennis game, a spiritual successor to "Top Spin 4". Technical evolutions now mean we can create the ultra-realistic simulation that we've been dreaming of."


Benoît Clerc, Director of Video Games at Bigben: "We are proud to give to all tennis fans a game worthy of their enthusiasm. The level of quality, wealth of content and game mechanics will ensure Tennis World Tour is one of the best sport simulations on the market."

This desire to provide a faithful tennis simulation translates into demanding gameplay during rally, a wide range of playing styles and a strategic preparation that influences the course of each match.

In addition to that, Tennis World Tour lets you experience the career of a professional: more than 30 playable tennis stars including Roger Federer, Gaël Monfils, Angelique Kerber, Garbiñe Muguruza and many more.

More information about the game will be provided during Gamescom 2017.

The probably don't have the licenses for all the Grand Slams and other tournaments, but will recreate the venues using a fake name

It's been so freaking long since a decent tennis game was released. Virtua Tennis and Topspin was all the way back in 2011. I'll take whatever I can get

I've been saving to buy any of the newer consoles just for this moment. But if they have it for the PS3, even better. Nonetheless I'm ecstatic! I would literally check each month, typing in 'new tennis video game', 'tennis video game 2017', 'Topspin 5'. It was getting desperate.

Hope they can get Serena and some of the other bigger names on both tours. I know it can be tough to get all the licensing agreements due to how expensive it is but hopefully they can find a way to get the Slams in as well instead of just using the generic "Australia, France, England and USA" titles.

Yeah, that's my concern but if the gameplay is good and the world tour functions like in real life, a 52 week calendar of tournaments, then I'll be happy. It's not fair that fifa and nba fans get their simulation of an actual career and tennis has never had a game that simulates the real tour, it's just a couple of tournaments and a ranking ladder of 100 players only.

I just hope they have a realistic Tour that is at least half as good as Tennis Elbow's. All the high industry tennis games seem to make a focus on Arcade playing rather than career modes.
