Scouting is coming to Franchise Mode in Madden 22

Madden 22 is set to launch next month on all platforms, and one of the biggest points of focus this year was Franchise Mode.

Thanks to the fan movement #FixMaddenFranchise, there was significant pressure on EA Sports to give the once-beloved and now oft-criticized game mode some much-needed TLC.

So far, we've already gotten several pieces of information and learned about new features coming to Franchise Mode like Staff Management and Weekly Strategy.

LEVEL UP: You can improve each piece of your staff with talents

Staff Management is among the most anticipated that's been announced, with EA Sports taking the time to add in a new RPG-style skill tree allowing you to upgrade and level up your staff.

On top of that, Weekly Strategy will allow players more control than ever to adjust the gameplan heading into each week and make sure you're prepped for each opponent.

Player Health will tie into that as well, and we know players will get to adjust the intensity and frequency of practice drills in order to improve players while making sure not to overwork them and risk an injury.

WAIT AND SEE: Scouting could be a huge addition this September

As for scouting, it was major news when EA Sports revealed that it's coming to Madden 22 Franchise Mode, but many have been frustrated that it won't be in the game at launch.

Instead, players will have to wait for a live service update scheduled to land in September that will bring scouting in, and many are understandably annoyed that Franchise Mode saves created prior to the update will not retroactively get scouting.

This means players will be required to make a new save after the update goes live, but hopefully the potential of what they reveal on Monday will be enough to make it worth the wait.
