What is this?.
Seems to be an open source football gameplay made by Google for Research resources and not released officially.





Here's the Github repository: https://github.com/google-research/football
(There's no installation or executable. You'd have to compile it yourselves).


And here's a very interesting video about AI's decision making process applied to this football game.

The most important thing of it all for me is...
Is this just a one-off? Looks very basic and rough around the edges but... Could they take this project forward in the future?. I really wonder if this was just developed for this sole purpose or... could we dream of having that largely craved 3rd football game, finally?.

I think they bought it from this guy and have repurposed it for AI learning

Yes, you are right mate!
But I'm wondering if, now that Google has taken it (they didn't buy it because it was open-source to begin with) for this AI learning methods, it might push them to do something else with it in the future?.

Now that they even have their own "console"... who knows?.

Unfortunately Google doesn’t create videogames so this game won’t never released. But, maybe someone could use this AI for a football game (maybe an indie team game producer).

I wouldn't imagine they will expand their work into a playable game. The github page says there are architectural problems that mean it wouldn't be worth trying to continue development;

Would be cool if Google did get into developing games though - a great football game as a Stadia exclusive could stop it being a complete flop.

I don't really know if I want Google to do that. Microsoft tried it back in the day and Microsoft Soccer still haunts me during my nightmares from time to time.

I never played or knew about that football game, but Microsoft Studios used to make some great games. Age of Empires, Midtown Madness, Microsoft/Links golf series etc...
