    The second of three planned updates to enhance the long-neglected Franchise Mode through Madden NFL 21 is scheduled to go out tomorrow. The first, which released in November, was significant in that it was the start of what was promised to materialize over the coming months but was far from being satisfying to those eager for improvements. This update though offers much more substance in the form of commissioner controls and draft logic improvements. The final patch is planned for Februar...

    Madden NFL 21 has gone live nearly a full day early with the next-gen version on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. Those who own the PS4/Xbox One Madden NFL 21 receive the upgrade for free.

    The campaign to #FixMaddenFranchise made a tremendous impact but effects would not be realized immediately. It was always going to take time to upgrade Franchise Mode in Madden NFL 21, and those gains would be somewhat limited, with the more transformational improvements and additions hopefully coming in Madden 22. The first of three planned updates largely centered on improving Franchise in Madden NFL 21 released today. It includes regression in Dev Traits, career stats for players, and ...

    Madden NFL 21 and FIFA 21 will miss the launch of the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. Release of both games will instead come on Friday, December 4. Speculation had started to build of a possible delay or even cancellation as launch of the new consoles neared and yet EA Sports would not comment on why they were not promoting the games or even selling pre-orders. This is surprising news given that Madden and FIFA (unlike NBA 2K21) are not expected to be dramatically different than what...

    Thanks to the dual-entitlement offered by EA Sports those making the move from current-to-next gen with Madden or FIFA can get the game on the new systems for free. Those who own the game on the PlayStation 4 or Xbox One can upgrade without charge, though it can be a little confusing as to how that works. PlayStation 4 copies only upgrade to PlayStation 5. Xbox One copies only upgrade to Xbox Series X or Series S. Digital will upgrade to digital. Physical copies will need to be inserted i...
