On this weeks episode of Game Trailers TV, Peter Moore was asked this very question and he said there will be a Madden 12 no matter what happens in the NFL.

I would have to believe Madden will still do pretty decent, factoring in the improvements we hope to see in franchise mode and maybe the lack of the NFL season this will be one of the few ways the NFL can still market itself through out the year if there is indeed a lockout.

Or they could just delay the release until the lockout is over and use the extra time to make a good game. I'd rather wait for a good game than get an average game in August.

Sorry to burst that bubble, but it will still be the same game engine that's already maxed out.
Outside of visual tweaks and odd injections, nothing major can be done.

There is a reason Offline Dynasty and Audio Package have not advanced.
The engine is limiting what can be done.

Sure they can flesh out the Dynasty more, but then because the core (gamepaly engine) can't be upgraded also, you'll find Madden becoming more Text Based style as gamers simulating the Old Gameplay just to get to the Fleshed out Dynasty.

Same thing with new Audio Package. New announcers can be used or how they say their lines, but we've seen every engine replication of gameplay since being on Next Gen consoles.

That's why the audio changes have become stale so quick.
-Different Audio, same Tackling animations.
-Different Audio, same Running animations.
-Different Audio, same Sliding Movement animations.
-Different Audio, same 2-Step Dance Blocking animation.
-Different Audio, same Catching animations.
and so on the list goes.

It's not that the Audio is repetitive in itself, but that the maxed out game engine forces repetitive lines as the animations across the board are simply the same as we've seen since making Next Gen.

We're finally starting to see it hinder the Visual Upgrades also.
When there's no movement, the game looks awesome, but when movement starts, we see those Clicky-Sliding-Robotic Movements that just pull your vision to those animations.

Until their is a new game engine to develope off of, Madden will never be able to "WOW" the community with something major.

What happens if there is a lockout? Nothing!!!

Gamers will spend $60 for the same Game Engine with some tweaks and adjustments.

It's not Ian and Co. fault. If the Administrative side would give him the keys, I really believe this guy would change the Football Gaming Experiece to a level that would blow our minds.

But, business is business, and unless your the owner, you just got to do what your told (esp if you want to keep your job).

This was suppose to be a short 3 line reply.
Oh well!!!
