It’s a question that gets asked every year. Hockey enthusiasts have inquired for quite some time now about a PC version of EA’s NHL franchise, despite that fact that one has not launched since the release of NHL 09 in 2008. So, will EA Sports release a PC edition of NHL 21? Unfortunately, that does not appear to be the case.
There was speculation that there would be a PC version of NHL 21, thanks to some placeholder listings that popped up on websites for video game stores. However, an EA community manager quickly squelched that rumor, stating that NHL 21 will not be coming to PC.
The PC platform is not the only one that will not receive an edition of NHL 21. The NHL development team stated back in July that an official next-generation release of NHL 21 will not be happening, thanks to the “resource-heavy task of porting the game to new console technology.”
