Next Gen Gameplay

While there's still plenty of content to enjoy in Madden 21, fans are already buidling the hype towards Madden 22 later this year.

If you're looking to snag it on Xbox Series X|S, we've got all the info about the reveal trailer, price, release date, and more.

Latest - Madden 21 joins The Play List for EA Play

If your excitement is up for Madden 22 and you haven't tried out Madden 21 yet, there's a new way to hit the field and get in on the action.

New members can get their first month for a mere 99 cents, and it's a reasonable $4.99 per month after that to enjoy Madden 21 on PlayStation, Xbox, Origin, or Steam.

You would also get the chance to enjoy ten hour gameplay trails of titles like FIFA 21 and NHL 21, along with full access to Madden 21 for subscribers starting March 2, 2021.

Madden 22 Reveal Trailer

Sadly, there hasn't yet been a reveal trailer for Madden 22, but last year's can provide a great indication of when we can expect on this summer.

The trailer for Madden 21 landed on June 16, 2020, and that's likely when we can expect another this year.

Last year we also had to wait a little longer for Next Gen details, but that should come with the reveal trailer for Madden 22.

Release Date on Xbox Series X|S

Just as we don't yet have an official trailer, we don't yet have an official release date. However, looking at previous years can give us a pretty solid prediction as to when Madden 22 will hit Xbox Series X|S.

The past three Madden games were made available in August, and each on a Friday. With that, we expect the Madden 22 release date to land on August 20 or August 27, 2021.

While last year's Madden 21 originally came out for PS4 and Xbox One, the next gen versions for PS5 and Xbox Series X|S hit in December of 2020. We likely won't see that delay this year, as EA Sports will want everything to land in August at once.

Xbox Series X|S Price

While we may see past-gen versions released on PS4 and Xbox One stick to the traditional $60 price tag, that's unlikely to be the case for Xbox Series X|S as next-gen consoles have set the new standard price at $70.

While many outlets, such as CNBC, looked at the potential backlash from this price increase, there doesn't seem to be any lasting damage on gaming so far.

Right now, it looks like $70 will be the price to pay for next-gen games, but they'll need to prove themselves worthy of that by delivering next gen gameplay.

Next Gen Gameplay

The hype began last year about Madden 21, which promised releases on next gen consoles that would upgrade the game and take it into the future.

However, that wasn't how things worked out. Madden 21's next gen releases had some change in the play-calling style and tweaks to stats during replays, but things didn't deliver much past that.

With no gap between their usual release date and the release of the next gen consoles themselves, EA Sports will have to live up to their Next Gen Madden promises with Madden 22.

They've spoken about a commitment to improvements in franchise mode including coaching and staff management, a new team chemistry system, and more, but only time will tell if they deliver on those plans.
