Snooker 19 is an upcoming official snooker game developed by Ripstone Games in partnership in the development team at Lab 42 and World Snooker. The game is expected to be released in 2019 and will come for Playstation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC.
The game will feature 128 of the world’s top players, which means you will be able to play as Mark Selby, Judd trump or Ding Junhui or even Ronnie O’Sullivan if you wish. The game’s publisher promises that Snooker 19 will deliver the most authentic, realistic and best looking snooker game ever made. Gameplay modes will feature multiplayer, single career mode linked to real life tournaments, and will have a TV-style presentation running throughout.
Lewis ward of World Snooker has said the following about Snooker 19:
As a sport, snooker has gone from strength to strength in the past decade and, at the same time, sports gaming has revolutionized. This is what makes working with Ripstone and Lab42 so exciting; seeing them create a state-of-the-art game that will deliver the most authentic snooker experience ever.
Even legends of the sport have added their opinion, as the former World Champion Shaun Murphy says,
To be able to pick up and controller and play in the tournaments that make or break careers against anyone in the world, will be an incredible experience. I can’t wait for the chance to try the game out, I’m sure it will make for a truly immersive experience.
