Madden 21 is approaching its launch in August, and we already know a lot about it. The American football simulation game is being developed by EA Tiburon, and Electronic Arts will publish it. Madden 21 is the upcoming installment in the famous Madden NFL series.
Madden 21 will be available for the usual platforms: PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Google Stadia. Furthermore, we can expect availability for PS5 and Xbox Series X when those next-generation consoles will arrive or a bit later.
New gameplay features
Madden 21 comes packed with new stuff, as the official gameplay trailer itself reveals:
The description is also conclusive enough:
Take a closer look at new gameplay updates in Madden NFL 21. Innovative changes designed to deliver authenticity on both sides of the ball include updated pass-rush mechanics, the new Skill Stick ball-carrier system, and more realistic open-field tackling. Go all out in Madden NFL 21 and feel advanced levels of control.
PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X will arrive in December, and they will represent tremendous upgrades for their predecessors: PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, respectively. The annoying loading times before starting a game or a new level of a specific title will be gone for good with the next-generation consoles.

Hopefully, the ongoing pandemic won’t delay the releases for either PS5 or Xbox Series X. As the situation in Japan (Sony’s home country) is looking good, we can’t say the same for the US (the home country for Microsoft, the company that creates the new Xbox console). Daily cases of infections with COVID-19 are even increasing in the US in the last days. However, the human need for progress is stronger than any pandemic.
