Following the end of EA Sports' NCAA Football series, fans have been eagerly anticipating the day when another college football video game would hit shelves. 

According to Dr. Saturday's Sam Cooper, that wait may end in 2020, with publisher iMackulate Vision Gaming (IMV) producing a college football-themed game titled Gridiron Champions.

The game won't feature any NCAA licenses but will instead feature 126 fictional schools with generic player names. The company announced users will have the opportunity to "customize the generic rosters, teams, stadiums, and conferences."

Gridiron Champions will also include deeper game modes such as "Legacy Mode," in which gamers can take control of an entire program and build a perennial national title contender. In "Gridiron Icon," users can instead live the life of a student-athlete and rise up through the ranks.

Gridiron Champions at least represents a step closer to another college football video game at long last.
