“We understand your frustration”: ‘Madden NFL 21’ producer on Franchise mode criticism

“Our team is actively working on bolstering plans to support Franchise”

Madden NFL 21 executive producer Seann Graddy has responded to fans’ criticisms of the updated Franchise mode featured in the upcoming game.

Fans’ disappointment towards the Madden NFL 21 Franchise mode stems from the lacklustre features that are being included in the upcoming game, with many players comparing it to a minor patch rather than a full-fledged update as compared to NFL 20. Fans have long been clamouring for a new, exciting career mode option in the NFL games, after years of the same formula.

In a video statement on Twitter, Graddy said that “We see your ‘fix Madden Franchise’ tweets and we understand your frustration. The Franchise community is critically important to us, and we appreciate your passion for Madden NFL. We’re reading your feedback and we clearly understand that you want more.”
