Peterborough-based video game development startup Canuck Play has officially released its third title Doug Flutie’s Maximum Football 2019. The game celebrates Canadian football, and is available on PS4 and Xbox One.
“The response for Maximum Football 2018 was phenomenal, and this title brings even more elements of Canadian Football to life, including having Doug Flutie as a character in the game,” says the President of the company David Winter. “Many players have expressed their enthusiasm to try it out and our team has been very excited for this moment to come.”

This is another important step for the Peterborough-based company as both Xbox One and PS4 have significant market shares in North America, with PS4 holding a 57 percent market share and Xbox One at 27 percent in January 2019.
Maximum Football 2019 features multiple game options between Canadian, College, and US Pro football. Gamers will also have the ability to play full seasons, hone skills in practice mode, customize team and players, full post-play replay with free camera control, multiple player body styles and game weather that impacts game play.
As a client of the Innovation Cluster, David A. Winter has worked in its downtown incubator in Peterborough to make Canuck Play a reality, officially launching their first game installment Canadian Football 2017, followed by Maximum Football 2018.
"It is an incredible milestone for Canuck Play to have achieved their third certification for Xbox One and second for Playstation 4 with the release of Maximum Football 2019," says John Gillis, President and CEO of the Innovation Cluster. "David has worked tirelessly to bring this third installment to life, that has disrupted the sports genre of the gaming industry."
The public can purchase Doug Flutie’s Maximum Football 2019 directly from the Xbox One and PS4 platforms.
