Madden NFL 16 Release Set for August 25

Posted April 16th, 2015 at 11:45 am


Today EA Sports announced an official release date for Madden NFL 16 of August 25. That date doesn’t come as any sort of surprise given how the game has gone out on the last Tuesday of August now since Madden NFL 12.

The logo image that EA utilized for the announcementĀ appears to be Madden 15’s with a 6 drawn on top of the 5. There’s an easy joke to be made there.

The NFL season does begin a bit later this year than normal with the kick-off game on September 10 and opening Sunday falling on September 13. Madden NFL 16 then will land shortly after week two of the preseason. EA Access subscribers on Xbox One will also get to play it for six early hours beginning on August 20.

No further news was provided other than to look for information to come in May. That could mean no roll out of either a cover vote, teaser trailer, or first info on the game to coincide with the NFL Draft which would be somewhat unusual. That still can’t be ruled out however given that the Draft begins on the final day of the month and carries into May.
