While the latest Madden game revealed last week–the update to one of the best sports games around–PC fans upset to discover that the Madden NFL 22 PC version will be last-gen and missing next-gen features EA is touting for the PS5 and Xbox Series X versions.
When Madden NFL 22 announced on Thursday, EA listed several next-gen features coming to the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S versions of the game that wouldn’t include in the last-gen PS4 and Xbox One releases. These features include next-gen stats, more refined AI, stadium atmosphere, and improved movement–with most of these part of the ‘dynamic gameday’ feature the publisher is adding to Buy Madden 22 Coins.
Unfortunately, the PC version will be PS4/Xbox One version and not the next-gen version. Sports Gamers Online reached out to EA for an explanation and received a response, although it’s not one that’ll satisfy disappointed PC fans–who only just started getting the Madden games again in 2019.
EA Sports representative explains they are still early in the transition to next-gen and right now they focused the team on making the best, quality experience on new consoles before looking to upgrade other platforms. While the explanation offers hope that a patch may arrive for Madden 22 on PC after the game’s release on August 20th, in this case “the future” could equally well refer to next year’s Madden 23. It’s certainly disappointing, especially as EA was making great strides towards making Madden on PC equal to the consoles–last year’s Madden 21, for example, came out on Steam and Origin of the same day as the console versions. Hopefully PC Madden fans won’t have to wait a whole year to enjoy Madden 22 Coins.
Therefore, if players sincerely want to achieve a brilliant victory in Madden 22, it is not enough to study practical game guides. They also need to buy more Madden 22 Coins to promote the rapid upgrade of their Ultimate Team. I wish them to have fun in Madden 22. Come on!
