Tennis World Tour has been given a launch date — May 22, 2018, and it’s coming to Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One.

Breakpoint Studio, which was formed with alumni from the PAM Development and 2K Czech studios that made the Top Spin series, made the announcement this morning. More than 30 real-life professionals are licensed to appear in the game. They will grace eight different regional covers, all of which feature Roger Federer — a 20-time winner of the four Grand Slam events — as the centerpiece.

Federer also graced the cover of 2006’s Top Spin 2, 2008’s Top Spin 3, and 2011’s Top Spin 4 by 2K Sports.

We previewed Tennis World Tour last weekend, focusing on a career mode that Breakpoint expects will be the centerpiece of the game. Tennis is making something of a video game comeback lately, with Full Ace Tennis Simulator available now for Windows PC, Tennis World Tour on the way in May and Mario Tennis Aces coming to Nintendo Switch in June.
