So the biggest announcement is for NEXT year's game?

"Massive changes to franchise mode in 2012."

Is this really the truth?

They also said they are re-tooling Superstar mode as well. I wonder with the Superstar changes maybe Road to Glory in NCAA Football will also be improved.

It better be. We've been waiting long enough, I was expecting Madden 11 to be Head Coach and Franchise combined with improved gameplay.

Here is the article talking about Madden 12:

In the meantime, we’d like to address some areas of the game that we know are hot on many of your radars, specifically the Franchise and SuperStar modes. Last year we delivered Online Franchise and while it was received very well by community and press, the usage was among the lowest for any of our gameplay modes. What this said to us was that Franchise mode as whole needed more than just a new access point, it needed a complete refresh. As most of you know, Franchise mode debuted in Madden NFL 99 on PlayStation, and since then, we’ve been adding on layers and layers of code each year to make it the most authentic experience possible. As console technology has evolved, it’s become increasingly more difficult to evolve the mode in-kind, since we are handcuffed by the limitations of the code from so many years in the past. To re-write Franchise mode to take full advantage of the PS3 and Xbox 360 would take well over a year to do, which is why we’ve taken the approach we have up until now. With that in mind, we made the decision to focus this year’s development on making the core areas of Madden NFL better, namely the AI, animations, playcall, and online play. While that meant not making any major overhauls to Franchise or SuperStar, we were still able to make some notable improvements while we prepare for the future. Specifically, we improved franchise stats (especially season rushing yards and season sacks), in-game injuries, Super Bowl presentation, NCAA Draft Class tuning, and we even completely re-created over 8000 players in 32 draft classes. We also added the new Meadowlands Stadium as the 2014 Super Bowl site. However, the biggest addition to Franchise mode this year is Game Planning. This year you have the ability to create a new Game Plan for every game in Franchise if you choose to do so. If you’re playing the Colts or Saints, you can focus your defensive Game Plan around Manning or Brees. If you’re playing a team with a great secondary like the Eagles, you can focus your Game Plan more around running the ball. You can save off a separate Game Plan for every opponent you face and if they add new players after year one, you can go back and edit that Game Plan to account for those changes. This new feature allows you to be the coach that you always wanted to be.

Re: So the biggest announcement is for NEXT year's game?

I have a feeling a lot of people are in for a major disappointment next year already. Nowhere has EA ever said they will have a brand new franchise mode next year. They said "in the future." No one knows what that means in EA's mind. But I wouldn't put my money on next year, that's for sure.

When I first read that, I read it as a statement that Madden 12 would be about franchise, but after re-reading it just now, there's nothing in that article that even implies that. I should have made that my Madden question.
