Adam Schefter Contributing to Madden NFL 25

Posted May 9th, 2013 at 10:45 am


A tweet from Madden NFL creative director Michael Young to Adam Schefter has made it evident that the ESPN reporter has an as-yet-to-be-explained role in Madden NFL 25. Though he was a part of the in-game Twitter feed heading in to do work for the game suggests he’ll factor in more significantly than that.

The hinting at involvement of a media personality comes exactly one year to the day after the same was done on Twitter with Trey Wingo. That occurred just weeks before the reveal of Connected Careers and his place providing commentary on players during the NFL Draft. The first news on the renamed Connected Franchise is slated for May 20. Schefter has a history working with EA on what could end up being a similar project as he was involved with NFL Head Coach 09 providing insight on prospects during the season and reaction to picks during the draft.

      Oh please. if 2K was doing this people would praise it cause it adds to the presentation and excitement and real feel of a season. just look how 2k stole the twitter feed idea. if its a good thing for the game it shouldnt matter just be happy theyre doing it.

        no one would complain about 2k doing it because their gameplay is fantastic and keeps improving every year. madden has a lot of work to do on that end

    Another good football person, sacrificing his credibility, and yet he’s probably ignorant of it all, not realizing Madden is another word for crap football…
