Re: Rex Dickson Leaves EA Tiburon and the Madden Team

I wonder if this is due to Madden spiraling to the 3rd best selling sports franchise during his tenure, not sure.

Very disappointing to hear but also very telling. Reminds me of Ian's departure. Two very passionate guys about the game.

I wish him nothing but the best of luck.

He still worked on Madden 19 so I expect them to talk about things that he added to this year's game, and what he wanted to be sure made the game so he could leave a lasting impression, etc. As far as Madden 20, that will be a different story when we get to it.

Not surprising. Same song and dance over there at EA/Tiburon. Best of luck to Rex, wasn't his biggest fan, but did appreciate some of the things he bought to the Madden dev team.

I'm excited for the future of Madden and is going to be interesting how it all plays out. I welcome change with open arms. Best of luck to him.

Re: Rex Dickson Leaves EA Tiburon and the Madden Team

I'm a little torn on this, it's difficult to know when things went downhill with madden and who was truly to blame. Rex always came off like someone that cared about the game and wanted to see real improvements. However, I only play cfm and cfm has pretty much been garbage for the entire current gen.

Maybe with someone new we can get a better CFM but I always felt Rex was for a CFM revamp. So who knows.

Re: Rex Dickson Leaves EA Tiburon and the Madden Team

I know for a while we have heard the term "3 Year Plan", and I know with Rex he wanted to finally do away with that term and build upon things from previous years. What's not good for Madden is the constant revolving door of people coming in and out. Essentially one guy works on something, then he leaves and then another guy comes in and says we are doing something completely different instead of building on what was worked on in previous years.

It's much like the Cleveland Browns, you can't hire and fire coaches every 1-2 years without letting someone build a foundation to see what he has to offer. Instead of being the Patriots and when one guy leaves, Madden just chugs along and gets better. They are more like the Browns and start over every time someone new comes in.

As a gameplay guy 1st and foremost, this is very disappointing to hear.* *Whether you like him or not, Rex was the most transparent Creative Director Madden has had in my opinion.* While the game definitely has core issues, Rex had gameplay moving in the right direction while he was there.* He fought for us simheads behind the scenes.* I'm really concerned about what this means for the direction of Madden gameplay wise moving forward.* Rex if you're reading this, it's been real.* Thanks for being a stand up guy & good luck on your future endeavours.
