UPDATED - Is the Scouting Update coming soon?

We've had to do some digging, but we found that EA stated the Scouting update to Franchise Mode in Madden 22 would be coming in September.

Last year saw a delayed release on next gen, with Madden 21 not landing on PS5 or Xbox Series X|S until several months after the main game launched. That wasn't the case this year, as all editions and platforms were released on the same day.

Those who pre ordered special editions of Madden 22 got early access which began on August 17. With an EA Play subscription, players can also get 10 additional hours of early access starting on August 12 via the trial.
