Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown has been officially named the cover athlete for Madden NFL 19.

A day after we reported about the Madden NFL 19 cover leak, Electronic Arts and EA Sports have officially named Antonio Brown the cover athlete for this year’s Madden game.

The cover is exactly what was pictured last night on Sports Gamers Online. It is a smiling Antonio Brown in front of a yellow to orange gradient background.

“I am beyond honored to be on the cover of both Madden games,” said Brown. “There’s a lot of milestones athletes dream of, and after being inducted into the Madden 99 Club earlier this year, and now appearing on the cover of this year’s games, it’s clear that business is not just booming, but I’m also among the all-time greatest with these honors.” – Antonio Brown said in an EA press release this morning.

Madden 19 is coming with a whole host of features that players should be excited about. A sequel to Madden 18’s “Longshot” mode called “Longshot: Homecoming” will put the fate of Devin Wade and Colt Cruise in players’ hands. There will be new storylines, quests, NFL gameplay and ways to impact their story than ever before. Once you’re done with Longshot: Homecoming, take Devin and/or Colt into Franchise and Ultimate Team to continue their journey to NFL greatness.

Like it’s ice hockey counterpart, Madden NFL 19 is also implementing Real Player Motion Technology. This RPM Technology will give fans and gamers more control over their favorite NFL players with more true-to-life animations and in-game moves. Now Antonio Brown will act like Antonio Brown and make those incredible catches along the sidelines. RPM will allow the virtual player to mimic their real-life counterpart in mannerisms, personality, and celebration.

Madden 19 is set to launch worldwide on Friday August 10, 2018. Those who pre-order the Hall of Fame Edition can get it three days earlier on August 7th while those with EA Access or Origin Access can play Madden 19 for 10 hours starting on August 2nd.

Madden 19 is available on the Playstation 4, Xbox One and PC through Origin.
