One can only imagine why and what direction EA has for this game now.

Rex Dickson Leaves EA Tiburon and the Madden Team

Crazy. I hope this means more of a Madden 10 direction? Seemed like a cool dude. Iím sure he will rock out whatever he does moving forward.

Re: Rex Dickson Leaves EA Tiburon and the Madden Team

I am unsure how to feel about this.

Was Rex part of the problem at Madden?

Was Rex pushing for the Madden team to address issues (*cough* Franchise *cough*) that EA was unwilling to address?

Whatever the case, best of luck to him. He was always solid with the community and at least listened.

With Rex leaving mid cycle, how will this effect Madden 19 . Will this be another madden 06 all over again ?

Best of luck to him.

Although I didn't always agree on his reliance of metrics and things like that, I do give him credit for giving the game a big jump into something resembling a NFL sim (even though it has a ways to go).

Always loved that he stayed pretty classy as well. The community can burn you out and he's handled it as well as you could have.

It's unlikely, at this point, that it will effect a whole lot. With only a few months left before release, the game is most likely feature complete. This is probably why he's leaving at this point, because there isn't much left for him to do.
