How do you save a franchise mode on PS5?

It seems like it is only cloud-based for PS5 version of the game, so you can only let the game auto-save. Anyone know a way around this? I don't know why I can't find the option to save my franchise progress and it is bugging me especially because I like to rig the games sometimes

Huh? There's an offline franchise mode on PS5, just as there is on last-gen. And in that mode you can create savepoints with the touchpad button on the franchise home screen.

Am I missing something in this post?

There is actually no way to manually save on the PS5 which is what I am trying to figure out, the Touchpad does not work correctly on the controller. Don't know if that is a bug or not

Weird. It works for me. Pressing it while on the home screen (the one with the HC in his office) takes me to the Save screen where I can either create a new save or overwrite an old one. Check the controls at the bottom of the screen - the button works fine once I press it.



Sure you're pressing the actual touch pad button down? It's not something you just tap like a laptop's touchpad (well, it is, but it doesn't have that functionality in Madden). Maybe your controller's defective.

Also, I'll repeat myself - you cannot create savepoints in online franchise - this is an offline franchise feature only. If you don't see the "Create savepoint" button at the bottom of the screen like my screenshot above, you are in online franchise.

Nope I am unable to touch or hold down the touchpad button. It doesn't do anything. I tried all of my PS5 controllers

If you're sure you're in offline franchise and not online (meaning the "create savepoint" line won't appear at the bottom of the screen if you're online), I got nothin' at this point.

It's definitely an offline franchise, however it appears as a Cloud Save

Re: How do you save a franchise mode on PS5?

Offline Franchises have a cloud with a line through it as a logo. As if to say "not a cloud save". Kind of a stupid way to do it since it honestly looks like a cloud save at first.

Just to reiterate you can only actually save from outside of an active on field game.....so obviously pressing the touchpad button at any other time than at the coaches screen isn't gonna work.

Try to create a new franchise offline. Then see if it saves that one properly. Then either your other one was corrupt or was accidentally an online save. Good Luck.
