Pre Order

Madden 21 isn't slowing down with new content like Sugar Rush in MUT 21, but that hasn't stopped players from looking ahead to the Madden 22 release date.

With major changes signaled in Franchise Mode and continued attention this year to Ultimate Team, players might get the best game in over a decade when we arrive at the Madden 22 release date.

While little is official just yet, here's what we know so far about the Madden 22 release date.

Latest - Drew Brees won't be in Madden 22

While details on Madden 22 are still a bit scarce, Drew Brees announcing his retirement all but confirms he won't be leading the New Orleans Saints in-game when Madden 22 is released.

It's a blow to Saints fans, but it'll also affect players who normally use the New Orleans Saints in Madden, as the team won't be nearly as formidable in Madden 22 without Brees.

It's not a shocking decision for the 42-year-old Dallas, Texas native to finally call it a career, but the effects of losing him are sure to be felt in the NFL and Madden 22 moving forward.

Madden 22 Release Date

There is no official Madden 22 Release Date just yet, but that doesn't me we have no idea when to expect the title.

LEAP FORWARD: The Madden 22 Release Date is already on the way

With the exception of 2018 and 2019 releasing earlier in the month, all of the most recent Madden games launched near the end of August, and the last three years came out on a Friday.

With that in mind, the expected Madden 22 Release Date is likely to be August 20, 2021 or August 27, 2021.

This of course assumes there are no delays with advancements being made or the full transition to launching on Next Gen consoles, but there is no indication so far that Madden 22 will face any delays just yet.

EA Play Trial and Demo

As for a Demo of Madden 22, players can likely expect EA to deliver their standard EA Play Trial in the weeks leading up to the Madden 22 Release Date.

EA PLAY: Madden 21 is already available in full for subscribers

While an exact date is hard to pinpoint, the EA Play Trial would likely become available one or two weeks prior to launch, and this will provide EA Play subscribers access to a 10-hour trial.

This would also serve as the Demo for the game, though it's possible EA may release a simpler or shorter Demo for those who aren't EA Play subscribers.

Early Access

Something that's becoming more and more common for sports titles is the opportunity to get Early Access.

This means you'd get to play the title even before the official Madden 22 Release Date, and Madden 21 did this last year.

Those who chose to Pre Order the MVP Edition of Madden 21 were offered 3-Day Early Access, a bonus that we'll likely see back for Madden 22.
