Madden 21 Xbox One release date

EA has finally confirmed the release date of 28 August.

As expected, it comes with several Editions that you can purchase to get some extras.

That isn’t all though, as there will be a Deluxe Edition that sits between the Standard and the MVP.

Thanks to the Inside Xbox stream we know that Madden 21 is optimized for the Xbox Series X and will have Smart Delivery, meaning if you buy a copy at launch you can upgrade to a Series X copy for free.



The trailer has arrived and is a touch underwhelming.

There’s no news about a fresh Ultimate Team or changes to Franchise Mode. Just a few tweaks to gameplay.

Given the downvotes on the video it is safe to say the community is disappointing.

EA Play was quiet about Madden 21, which was a surprise. Maybe we’ll get a secondary trailer soon to show off some real changes to last year’s title.
