Madden 18 Plagued By Performance Lag

Madden 18 Performance Lag

Since its release yesterday, Madden 18 has a problem that appears to be growing: frame rate lag.

Forums from MUTHEAD to have seen multiple people complaining about Madden 18 frame rate lag. The Madden subreddit has several (1, 2, 3, and counting) posts about it as well.

Some people say the frame rate lag can for several seconds in both online and offline mode. The majority of the user complaints come from the Sony community covering PS4 and Pro Madden 18 players. While there has a few Xbox user complaints, the majority say the game runs silky smooth.

EA has yet to make a statement about the issue. Exactly how many players are having this issue is still unclear.

Yes I am having serious lag issues with Madden 18 but the crazy thing is it’s only occurring more consistent in Franchise mode. Now the online head to head mode is better but it lags at times as well. EA of you’re listening to any of us at please fix this! We pay good money for these games every year they come out and we all deserve better from you guys!!
