EA and the development of the next Madden 21

How long after the release of Madden 20 do you think the EA team started working on the next Madden 21 game?

They start working on the next game before the current one releases, so probably July of 2019. Iím basing that on my time visiting the studio a couple times for community day events.

Re: EA and the development of the next Madden 21

Only thing I'm certain on for M21 is that SS KO will get expanded, which means SS and X Factors are here to stay. Personally, I think they should stay and the more they implement them the better player differentiation will get.

I have 0 expectations for Franchise. They have a lot of work ahead of them adding 2 new stadiums and getting all of the new uniforms in. I wouldn't be surprised if they found a way to spin those as the big "additions" to franchise.

if they don't add anything good to Franchise and improve little bit to Franchise Mode then i don't think it is worth buying

I agree with the sentiment, but they added absolutely nothing this year to franchise and it's been an incredible game. I've put 500 hours into solo franchises this year. If they continue to improve gameplay, I'll be hooked again next year.

Don't get me wrong, I would be first in line to pay a stupid amount of money for a Madden game with a DeuceDouglas-style complete overhaul of Franchise. I've also seen how little they care about Franchise though so I'm keeping expectations low and any additions will be a bonus. I can't keep getting my hopes up for them to re-prioritize their dev time year after year lol.

I can't prove this, but i think they are working off a previous version and just tweak it. So they're modifying Madden 20 and just slapping 21 on it. I think most sports games work off previous versions and just update it. I think it's a glorious/patch update with just a full price tag.
