Lamar Jackson to be on the Cover of Madden NFL 21.

OWINGS MILLS, Md. -- Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson revealed he'll receive another honor after his NFL Most Valuable Player season -- he'll grace the cover of "Madden NFL 21."

On a video conference call Tuesday with Baltimore reporters, Jackson said he has spoken to EA Sports and made the surprise announcement that he'll be the new face of the video game."It's always been a dream of mine since I was a little kid, since I first started playing Madden," Jackson said. "It's dope. I have every Madden. To me to be on the front of it, it's a dream come true."

Jackson also said he isn't worried about any curses associated with being on the cover of Madden.

"Patrick Mahomes is on the front and he won [Super Bowl] MVP," Jackson said. "I want that curse. I hope that's a curse."

You're basing your opinion of modern Madden games off your impressions of the first one on Genesis?

Re: Lamar Jackson to be on the Cover of Madden NFL 21.

EA maintains exclusive Madden NFL license in multiyear renewal.

Financial terms of the renewal were not disclosed. Asked for information about the extension’s length, an NFL representative confirmed to Polygon that the new contract runs for six years “starting today,” taking the agreement through May 2026. The rep also said the contract includes a provision for a one-year extension at the end. That additional year depends on EA hitting certain revenue targets.

Re: Lamar Jackson to be on the Cover of Madden NFL 21.

Nah, I have tried some since then. I think the last one I tried was 3 or 4 years ago. Sucked during their release and I think it still sucks this day. 2k series did it better.

Is this not also in dev for next gen? Why show a trailer for the current systems when this game comes out in late August?

Maybe they're not ready to show off next gen (which is troubling to be sure).

Not sure if this was already covered but if you buy '21 for Xbox One, you'll get a free upgrade to One X as long as you upgrade before '22 comes out (this is not going to be using Microsoft Smart Delivery). PS4 -> PS5 is probably coming but not officially announced.

Note, you cannot upgrade from a physical disk on Xbox One to a diskless One X.

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.

Madden 21’s Franchise Mode Reveal Was Even Worse Than Expected.

#FixMaddenFranchise has been trending on Twitter since last night. I think people have finally had enough of EA putting very little resources in the mode.

Doesn't matter much if people are still going to buy it, especially with the free upgrades to next gen. Like complain all you want but if you want things to change don't buy it.

Exactly! People can start hashtags, cry and scream all the want, but until EA starts losing sales because people are tired of buying a 60 dollar roster update, nothing will change. Madden 20 was the best selling Madden game in it's history. Gamers need to put their money where their mouth is and stopping supporting the game.

Madden 21 Will Drop Washington Redskins Name And Logo

Next month’s Madden NFL 21 is being altered at the last minute to remove mentions of the Washington Redskins team name and logo imagery, a rep for publisher Electronic Arts has told Kotaku.

This comes at the end of a week that began with the NFL team’s management finally listening to calls for the Redskins’ racist name to be changed.

“We are pleased to see Washington’s decision to change their team name and visual identity,” the rep said. “We are quickly working to update Madden NFL 21 to feature a generic Washington team, while we await final word on the updated team name and logo design.”

Because the game is nearly ready to ship for its August 25 release, the version that comes out on disc will still include the Redskins name and logo, but EA said that connecting to the internet will trigger an update that will remove those.

The Washington team hasn’t announced a new name yet, so EA will initially replace the Redskins with a generically-named Washington team.

Changes to the name and logo will come via title updates that will download automatically,” the EA rep explained. “The first changes will be available to our EA Access players and will include audio/commentary updates; motion graphics and presentation updates; stadium art, environments, crowd gear and signage updates; and uniform updates. Players may continue to see some outdated Washington references in other areas of the game at launch, but we are committed to removing all of those from the game in additional title updates coming shortly after launch.”

“Players who purchase a physical disc will need to connect online to receive the Washington team changes, as the game is now in the final stages of preparation before shipping,” they said.

Wonder if they are going to remove the sexual harassment mini games from Franchise Mode.

If you have EA Access or EA Play as it's called now, the ten hour trial of Madden 21 is now available to download and play.

Re: Lamar Jackson to be on the Cover of Madden NFL 21.

Reception has not been kind to this one. User reviews have bombed the score to an All-Time low of 0.4/10.
Seems like it might be a bit glitchy.
