Re: NFL Owners Agree to Extend EA's Exclusive Rights Through 2025 Season

Surprised so many people thought the NFL wouldn't take the most guaranteed money they could get over competition.

Inevitable, obvious move.

2k cannot compete with Madden at this juncture in terms of an NFL game. They have no proven football engine, no dev team set, nothing. They'd go broke trying to steal the license away and basically create a game from scratch in the next 15 months. The only way this changes the next time the license is up is if they prove they can create an 11v11 football game that looks and plays better than Madden, and do it multiple years in a row.

Whatever case EA made, they no doubt backed it with sales and MUT numbers. No other publisher has a proven and established record of $$$'s with the license in the last 15 years. This was a sales pitch. We can say what we want about the quality of Madden but it makes money and business-wise, EA is no joke. Not difficult to see how the NFL was easily convinced.

Hopefully, with 2k now making NFL Football titles (arcade, semi-sim or otherwise), they will have a compelling argument of their own next time around.

Anytime someone defends Madden to me with exclusive rights, I'm just going to say a Punter at QB won the Madden bowl. A PUNTER! Oh that is like as realistic as you can get. I hope my cards cut Kyler Murray and sign Marquette King to hand the ball off with no passes. Wait he is too good because he is quick. Better find a slower punter............ Exclusive rights brings out the best in companies........

This is going to pretty much end my football video gaming days. Sad times, as the yearly release used to get me so hyped.

Definitely disappointed with this news...Iím a massive Madden fan and I play almost exclusively on Franchise mode. I feel that franchise has been neglected for so long due to EA not having any competition in the market place...I hope that EA has some big plans for Franchise mode, but Iím very doubtful.

Just hoping 2k comes up with a generic game like Axis football or Doug Flutie maximum football.* I am sure it would sell well.
