Madden 22 PC Version Won’t Be Next-Gen

When Madden 22 was announced, PC players of the game were hoping to finally experience the next-gen version of the game for themselves. Unfortunately, however, that doesn’t appear to be the case.

When EA Sports revealed the Madden 22 features and improvements, one thing quickly noticed was that most of the gameplay updates require either the Xbox Series X|S or PlayStation 5. That means that, once again, PC players will be given the last-gen version of the game that PlayStation 4 and Xbox One owners receive.

Madden 22 gameplay will include Next Gen Stats Star Driven AI, an overhauled gameday atmosphere, and Next Gen Movement 2.0. All of those new features are only offered to next-gen console players.

We’ve reached out to EA Sports for an official comment on the decision, and will update the story should one be received.

What do you think about the apparent decision to keep the Madden 22 PC version on par with last-gen as opposed to the newer systems? Let us know in the comment section below, and stick with Sports Gamers Online for more.

This really sucks. We have machines that are 3x more powerful and have to go back to 1080p and screen tearing if we want to play sports games.
This is not something they need to figure out. This is something they are doing on purpose. Lazy idiots act like the games aren’t created on a PC in the first place. A graphics card from 4+ years ago can do everything the ps5 can do and more, yet we just get b/s excuses.
I don’t know which version in going to get. I really don’t want to mess with that stutterbox they call ps5 anymore. No vrr, no 3d audio, weak agpu

EA: “No one cares about sports games on PC!”
PC: “You keep giving us inferior products.”
EA: “We strive to deliver the best experience for all players”
*EA releases legacy version of sports title on PC.*
*sales are dismal*
EA: “The PC playerbase is clearly not interested in sports titles.”
