As we enter the new year, a new release from our favorite sports titles looms along the horizon. However, the latest release in the Madden franchise has heavy stipulations. According to sources close to Mike Straw at Insider Gaming, Madden NFL 24 is a “make or break” release for the franchise.
It’s Now or Never
The blunders of Madden NFL 23 have caught the eye of EA management, and it is laying down the law. You may recall an earlier report by SGO stating that players affected by the cloud save issues of Madden 23 will receive an invite to the closed beta of Madden NFL 24. The invite is good for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S users. In addition, and lastly, all impacted players who lost progress due to this issue will receive a 50% discount on Madden 24.
Currently, the features of Madden 24 have been kept under wraps by EA. Rest assured that as soon as we know, we will report it.
“The discount for players who lost their franchise is only the beginning,” one close to the game’s development said. “EA has big plans for Madden 24 and the management of the game knows how big of a year it is. Not just for the game, but for their future in their positions.”
Sales will not be an indicator of success in the upcoming madden cycle. If Madden 24 suffers from the same issues that plagued Madden 23, some leadership’s future will hang in the balance.
Madden has been the subject of the ire of fans over the past few years. To them, Madden has seemingly regressed over the years. Multiple campaigns have been started to fix Madden, which seems to fall on deaf ears.
Since 2005, EA has monopolized NFL titles with no legitimate competitor. It may change in the coming years, depending on the success of Madden 24. If Madden 24 fails, the window to make a true competitor is wide open for developers.

Seriously the Joe Burrow image looks a like a young Dan Aykroyd. and that is what EA have hung their hat on. Graphics! which they even suck at that.
I mean the image of Joe Burrow doesn’t even look like him. Fans deserve better and EA have just been resting on the Exclusivity agreement for years now. The NFL have to at least end the agreement and let others make a better product. thats all that is really needed. Let the people decide what is a better product.
I’m really appreciative of Google for approving these guidelines, and I now have a responsibility to pay and distribute the money to everyone on Sunday. Given that I was laid off a year ago in a terrible economy, it’s amazing that Google pays a wonderful wage from home of $6,850 per week.

I have little to no hope for this game. The gameplay issues for me start and end with their decision to use Frostbite, an engine developed for FPS. How many versions have they built with Frostbite since 2016, and it still stinks? And what did moving to Frostbite buy Madden – The Longshot mode which died after two versions….
No matter how much EA tries to make it look pretty, it is still stuck in glitchy animation driven gameplay, missing elements (like the Refs) that makes you feel like you’re watching – not controlling the result.
Plus let’s not even talk about how there are features – that used to sell this game almost 15 years ago – that are still missing.
A quick aside on the upcoming College Football game. IMHO the delay is all about out how College Football Ultimate Team (CFUL?) will work between the NIL deals for current players and legacy players whose rights are already controlled by their schools…. figure UT is 28% of their revenue. If Madden under Frostbite struggles with 32 NFL teams – how is EA going to build a game that was always the #2 title in their football lineup but must handle 124 teams and a fan base that just wants NCAA 2014 in 4K
