High Heat Major League Baseball was a series of baseball video games, released on PlayStation, Xbox, PlayStation 2 and Microsoft Windows. There were six annual versions of the game released, starting with High Heat Baseball 1999, and ending with High Heat Major League Baseball 2004.
The game, featuring the official licensed team and player names from all 30 Major League Baseball teams, was created by games company 3DO which subsequently filed for bankruptcy in 2003 soon after the release of the final version of the series, High Heat Major League Baseball 2004. In August 2003, Microsoft purchased the rights to the High Heat franchise from 3DO; however, Microsoft has yet to develop a new title in the series.
High Heat was traditionally known for possessing more simulation-style qualities than competitors World Series Baseball, All-Star Baseball, or Triple Play, but frequently lagged behind in graphical quality.
