During the past few months, Madden 23 has become embroiled in issue after controversy, and EA management has noticed. Sources informed Insider Gaming that the release of Madden 24 will “make or ruin” the series.
According to a source familiar with the game’s development, “the discount for players who lost their franchise is just the beginning.” “EA has enormous ambitions for Madden 24, and the game management is aware of the year’s magnitude, not just for the match, but also for their career in their current roles.
The discount being discussed is the 50% discount EA offered to Madden 23 gamers who lost their Connected Franchise save due to an upgrade that the team at EA Tiburon pushed, which led to corrupted save files. They will also get an invitation to the closed beta of the game.
According to a different source, Madden 24’s game sales will be less important. The game’s leadership will undergo significant change if the game is released and experiences problems similar to those in Madden 23.
Several employees at EA Tiburon have developed a “now or never” mentality regarding the franchise due to the unfavorable reaction to the game, which management believes is entirely justified given the series of corruption issues.
When gameplay improvements for Madden 23 were revealed, details about what fans may anticipate from Madden 24 were withheld. The single-player and offline experience is one area the team is paying particular attention to.
According to reports, the developers of Franchise mode believe the mode is nearly complete and that the only remaining changes required to keep players engaged are tiny ones in addition to the more significant repairs to the database problems. Better contract management is one of the mode’s top priorities, but it’s still being determined if it will be available in time for Madden 24.
