It was originally moved so that it wouldn't "compete" with the NCAA series.

According to EA at the time they made the decision to push back Madden was to align with the start of the NFL season. Also, don't forget that was also the year of the labor dispute.

Personally I didn't/don't buy EAs reason. I think it was to due the down sales in NCAA. And maybe even a little bit with the labor issue.

As much as it would suck, I think it does have to do with NFL restrictions and they CAN'T release it until the last week in August.

There development cycle had already started when the announcement of cancellation of the NCAA was made, so changing the release/target date would've been tough this year to begin with.

With them now having the later release date, moving the release date up to where it was (early August to coincide with Pre-season) would result in a short development cycle, which I think we will all agree is not the best course of action at this point in time, considering where the game is.

I read somewhere where ea also said with later release date it gives them 3 more weeks to work on bugs and glitches that way there's less patches they have to do.
