On August 28th, 2017 IMV Gaming announced that they had found a developer in Big Ant Studios. Big Ant had not made an American football game, but they had made some games for similar sports such as lacrosse. There was one catch, however, as there always seems to be with IMV Gaming. Despite Big Ant only requiring half of the development fee upfront, IMV’s half was $2.5 million and they clearly didn’t and still don’t have the development funds. If they did, surely they would announce Big Ant Studios has started development of Gridiron Champions.
I wouldn’t sit my family down and tell them we have a new house then tell them we don’t really have a house, but someone said they would build the house if we pay them lots of money.
Any builder will build most anyone a house for lots of money, there’s really no significance to this announcement. It seems it was just more smoke and mirrors to make it appear there was tangible progress when there was none.
Anyhow, when this news broke, I reached out to Big Ant Studios.
