EA Sports have announced the release date for the latest installment of their Madden NFL video game series. Unlike years in the past, this year’s game will not be following the previous trend — Madden ’11, Madden ’12, Madden ’13. Instead, the game will be named Madden NFL 25 to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the franchise.
Madden NFL 25 will be released on August 27.
“There’s no better way to celebrate and mark the culmination of 25 years of innovation than by naming this year’s game Madden NFL 25,” said Cam Weber, General Manager of American Football for EA SPORTS, via a release on the EA website. “This year’s game will push the boundaries with gameplay and feature innovations that will lay a very strong foundation for the next 25 years of this storied franchise.”
Like last year, the Madden cover athlete will be determined by an interactive fan vote. Voting will start on Monday, March 11 on ESPN.com/MaddenVote and you can keep up with the brackets and voting on ESPN SportsNation once again.
Madden NFL 25 will be available for Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 for $59.99.
