Fed Up Football Fans Are Once Again Calling For The NFL To Drop EA Sports After Disastrous ‘Madden 21’ Release

Fed up Madden fans are once again calling for the NFL to end their exclusive relationship with EA Sports following the disastrous rollout of Madden 21.

Over the weekend, fans got #NFLDropEA hashtag to trend on Twitter after the game was released with a series of bugs and an underwhelming franchise mode which led to the game getting an extremely low user score on Metacritic.

EA responded by uploading a patch to fix in-game bugs and promised to update the game in the future with feedback from the community in mind.

As our Executive Producer Seann Graddy mentioned on Friday, Madden NFL is a live service and longtime players know that launch is just the start of the annual Madden journey. We deploy regular updates after launch to tune gameplay based on your feedback, all while continuing to evolve the broader game with new content and experiences.

EA’s promise to listen to fans doesn’t seem to be enough for those who shelled out money for a broken game and are now getting the hashtag #EndMaddenMonopoly trending on Twitter on Thursday.
