I don't think that's going to happen since they have a deal with the NFL for non simulation games.

They talked out of their backside. They lied. They backed up the brinks truck.

disappointing...

This shouldn't be a surprise to anyone. 2K never had a chance to get sim game rights.

Every time the license was ending, it was renewed with no other competition in mind. EA pays astronomical money and the NFL likes exclusive relationships.

So.... EA couldn't be innovative if they had competition?

We'll most likely see the start of the "plan of Innovation" at EA Play Live and maybe a tidbit on Monday's Trailer. It is frustrating seeing that they considered opening license but went with EA's plan of innovation. Seeing that along with new genres and expanding to more casual crowd, my initial thought is "Can you at least get the core game(gameplay and franchise) set first before you try to be all innovative". I see being innovative, but at least make sure the game is improved first. Its like installing a new stereo into a car instead of fixing the check engine light issue lol.
"the multi-year renewal of the partnership means more football simulation games from EA, as well as “additional, innovative ways to play through new genres, expanded esports programs, arcade-style and enhance mobile experiences, and more, across platforms.”
When I see that, I think innovative is primarily "casual friendly". Especially "new genres". I think more arcade style modes. With NBA Live(not best example lol) having street mode, then Fifa having a street mode and NHL having an outdoor mode, it is very likely Madden implements a arcade style Street mode

Disaster.


And yet, everyone will go out and buy it this fall. Just like they have every year since complaining about Madden started.

I understood what he said, but why would they dump any resources in a generic game when they can put the NFL brand on their games now & probably actually sell it. They had 12 yrs since allpro to do a generic game...why would they start now. I doubt 2k was even at the table for this, since they already had a deal in place for non sim games. Sometimes you have to prove yourself until you can dance with the almighty NFL.
