Madden-NFL-20

A post-Super Bowl update is out for Madden 20, and it includes some modifications for franchise mode, as well as playbook updates.

Madden 20 February Update

We reported a little over a week ago that a new play would be added to the Chiefs playbook in the latest update. After Tyreek Hill sent out a tweet letting the Madden team know that they should add the “Jet Chip Wasp” play the Chiefs called on the 3rd and 15 that Kansas City converted late in Super Bowl 54, the play was added in today’s update.

In addition, the Madden team also fixed a problem with the “Route Runner” wide receiver archtype data, as it was preventing those players from reaching a high OVR via progression.

Here’s the full update:
