EA Sports announced early this week that Formation Subs will be included in Madden NFL 17’s Franchise Mode. While initially left out of the feature set it’ll now make it in with the patch that arrives alongside the game as it’s released. Operation Sports has a developer blog detailing the Formation Subs which allow for the designation of players to be on the field in particular formations regardless of how the depth chart is sorted.

The ability to set formation substitutions was one of the community’s most requested features so its return with the assurance that it’ll be in the game day one is welcome despite the functionality lacking in some respects. The launch update in question will likely be out by next Wednesday in order to align with the beginning of the EA Access trial period.
