EA Announces Madden 22 Franchise Updates Still Being Held Despite Rumors of Cancellation. In spite of rumors that were circulated on the internet during the week Madden 22 coins, EA is planning to announce two more updates to Madden 22, which will feature a franchise-based mode. They will also reiterate the reasons for its support for Madden as a live-streamed game.
In a new statement, EA Sports told IGN: We don't like to make comments on rumors or speculation. However, we're committed to improve Franchise as a element of our Madden NFL 22 live service and beyond. This includes two coming Franchise updates that we'll deliver within Madden NFL 22. We'll be providing more information on these updates in the coming year.
This announcement comes in response to a report from Sports Gamers Online that EA had decided to cancel any additional Franchise mode update for Madden 22. It cites IGN's discussion with Madden 22 director of production Seann Graddy. Graddy said that this year's content program is "slightly less ambitious than those of the past" because the team is focused on a handful of key areas instead of trying to release games on the same scale as Superstar KO, a well-received arcade mode introduced in Madden 22.
"I think the roadmap may be a bit more modest than in the past because we're really focusing on a handful of core parts from Madden 22 and also getting into Madden 23 in a big way," Graddy said at the time. "So I will stand by our previous statements over the last couple of years"we're a live game and we'll continue updating cheap mut coins, however we're definitely not going to be talking about a brand new mode."
