EA Sports originally planned to officially announce and detail Madden NFL 21 on June 1, but the developer delayed its reveal as part of EA’s wider decision to push out its big announcements out of respect and solidarity for Black Lives Matter.
EA Sports has seemingly now set a new date for its reveal, telling fans on Twitter to look out for news on June 16. There will be some kind of announcement trailer on that day, but no further details about the event have been announced yet.
Whatever the case, the reveal of Madden NFL 21 on June 16 will likely only be just the beginning. EA’s annual E3 show, EA Play 2020, is scheduled for June 18. With Madden 21 being one of EA’s biggest games of 2020, you can expect it to be featured during the show. You can watch EA Play 2020 live on GameSpot.
Madden 21 features Baltimore Ravens standout QB Lamar Jackson on its cover. The game is expected to release around August, ahead of the start of the NFL season (which is scheduled to go forward despite ongoing COVID-19 concerns). Madden 21 has so far been confirmed for release on Xbox One and Xbox Series X, while it’s also expected to come to PS4 and PS5, as well as PC.
Everyone who buys Madden 21 on Xbox One can get the Xbox Series X edition for free as part of a limited-time upgrade program. In other Madden news, the NFL has voted to give EA the exclusive rights simulation NFL games for years to come.
