MLB The Show seems set for release on Switch in 2021

Play ball!

NEW YORK/SAN DIEGO, December 9, 2019 – Major League Baseball (MLB), the Major League Baseball Players Association (MLBPA), Sony Interactive Entertainment (SIE) and San Diego Studio jointly announced today that they have entered into multi-year extensions to continue development and distribution of MLB The Show, the award-winning officially licensed video game.

In addition, the historic expansion of the long-standing partnerships will bring MLB The Show, for the first time ever, to additional console platforms beyond PlayStation platforms as early as 2021. Complete details will be announced at a later date.

San Diego Studio has been creating officially licensed baseball video games enjoyed by millions of fans for more than 20 years. With MLB The Show 20, which will feature Chicago Cubs star Javier Báez (El Mago) as its cover athlete, the studio will be commemorating the 15th Anniversary of MLB The Show's franchise next year through a variety of unique promotions and new gameplay features.

MLB The Show is officially licensed by MLB and the MLBPA. Follow MLB The Show on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram for the latest information and updates.

While the above press release doesn't mention Switch specifically, Nintendo has retweeted this announcement on their official account. I'd say that means the series is a lock for Switch!

Thanks to Kolma, Neverunplaying, Dondom95, and Andreslop24 for the heads up!

This is a really big deal

This is awesome news!

Batter Up!

I can't wait to play that game. It has been hailed for years as the best baseball game out there -- even when there was a 2K multi-platform release.

Mmmmm, nice, sportsball!

I guess that means pennant chase baseball is officially cancelled. Can't wait to see if mlb the show 22 sells best on switch

Well, that's a good omen.

Hopefully this is a sign of more things to come from Sony.

I don't think I'd buy it on Switch when I already have PS4, but for those without that option this is very good news. Nintendo systems haven't had decent sports games in way too long.
