To develop a high-quality boxing video game for the ultimate consumer experience, Steel City Interactive is ready to wait as long as it takes to perfect the Undisputed game.
The first boxing video game since 2011, Undisputed is set for Early Access for PC users on Steam on January 31. Early Access will feature 50+ licensed fighters, a Career Mode option, and a women’s division, the latter a first for any boxing video game.
Following Early Access, over 200+ boxers will be available for fans to play as or against. Fighters already on the Undisputed roster include Muhammad Ali, Joe Louis, Katie Taylor, Canelo Alvarez, Terence Crawford, and Tyson Fury.

Here is all you need to know about the game, including when users will be able to play the game outside of Early Access.
When will the Undisputed boxing game be released?
Early Access for fans will only be available on PC through Steam. That will take place on January 31.
Regarding how long the Early Access period is, Undisputed’s Steam page didn’t give an exact timeline.
“We will release the full version of Undisputed when we feel it’s ready,” developers stated. “That means achieving certain milestones and reaching a level of quality we feel is up to our standards and incorporates feedback from players. With that in mind, it can be tough to predict exactly how long Early Access will last. We plan to add additional content and features along the way, and that will take time.”
Following Early Access, the game should be available on platforms such as PlayStation 5, PS4, Xbox One, and Xbox One Series S and X.
