Madden 21 Release Date and New Features May Have Been Leaked


On June 1, EA Sports will give gamers a first look at the new Madden 21 game. But just three days before the release of the reveal trailer, a now-deleted sentence in the video’s description may have leaked out the release date.

Madden 21 Leaked Release Date

Currently, the EA Sports team has a placeholder video on YouTube for the premiere of the release trailer. Even though the premiere for the video is set for June 1, some interesting info was reportedly found in the description of the trailer. The description, which has since been deleted, stated that gamers can pre-order the Madden 21 MVP Edition. The MVP Edition reportedly includes three days of early access to the game beginning on August 25.

Here’s a screenshot of the now-deleted description:

The supposed image began circulating when Madden YouTuber GutFoxx posted a video with the aforementioned image, which was first found on the Twitter account @themarksman13.

If this is accurate, it does look like the game is slated for an August 28 release, which is a bit interesting since last year’s game was released on August 2. Additionally, it looks like gamers who pre-order a special edition of the game will receive several days of early access.

You can also see that EA Sports is advertising a few new features you can find below:

“Go all out in Madden NFL 21 with innovative gameplay mechanics that offer advanced levels of control and inspire creativity on both sides of the ball.

Feel all-out control with the new Skill Stick ball-carrier system, dominate the edge with fresh pass rush moves, experience more open-field realism with tackle improvements, and have more fun with user-controlled celebrations.”


UPDATE (5/29): This article has been updated since its original publication.

Brandon Saucier if it comes out August 28 the game will probably be done working on by July so they can you know, print discs and ship the games. And I doubt they immediately started working On Madden 21 the day after Madden 20 released. They have to work on Madden 20 after launch for Patches and new Madden content. Don’t be a sucker for EA your whole life.

Angelo G. Canallo actually look at what you are saying ?. So you think last year they finished on August 1st and shipped August 2nd? And it was also a day 1 patch. And seeing as how they do updates all year long (last one was like a week or two ago) I would think they use different people for that. But hey….. you tried to sound smart…. but in reality you’re the real sucker?

Brandon Saucier you think EA works on Madden a full year? Have you played it? Also EA can’t afford to have two development teams working on separate Maddens.

Angelo G. Canallo ?‍♂️it doesn’t take a full team to do the patches. Its just a change of a few codes. They don’t rebuild the game to do every patch, just like they don’t make the game every year from scratch. Unless they make a new game engine, the base game is already to go every year. All they do is make improvements and add a few new features and details.

Brandon Saucier “the base game is already to go every year”. Thanks for reassuring my point. Have a good day.
