Cale Makar Makes The NHL Cover 2024
Cale Makar was recently announced as the cover athlete of NHL 24. EA Sports made the announcement via social media on August 14, 2023.
The full reveal will take place a couple of days later on Aug 16, Wednesday. Likewise, the video game is expected to release on 13 October 2023.
While the likes of Linus Ullmark, Connor McDavid, and Jack Hughes were seen as probable candidates, Makar has acquired a surprise accolade.
The extremely delighted Cale also shared the news via Twitter and thanked EA Sports for the honor. He is the first Avalanche player to make the cover of the game since Peter Forsberg in 1998.
Furthermore, Makar is only the 5th defenseman after Scott Stevens, Chris Pronger, Dion Phaneuf, and P.K. Subban to feature as the cover athlete.
Although the dates regarding the official release are yet to be announced, EA Sports is most likely to continue the trend of releasing the game on the second Friday of October.
The highly anticipated NHL 24 game developed by EA Vancouver will be available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
