The game is reportedly a collaboration between The Rugby Forum and HB Studios, and it will be the successor to Rugby 2008. HB Studio has worked on the PSP versions of FIFA 10, NBA Live 10 and Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10 among many other titles.
Other than the fact that the game is indeed in development, details are scarce. "Details will be coming thick and fast in the coming weeks, and HB Studios want to keep you all in touch via a series of developmental blogs and podcasts, which will be commencing later in the development of the game," reads the home page at The Rugby Forum.
"For now, all you need to know is that the game IS happening and that TRF IS the best place to hear the latest news and talk about the latest views as we enter a ne era with our friends at HB Studios right alongside us."
