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.”
