EA Sports has announced that Madden NFL 14 won't be called Madden NFL 14 at all. Instead, it'll be titled Madden NFL 25 to celebrate the series' 25th anniversary. It's in development at EA Tiburon and will be coming in August.

“There’s no better way to celebrate and mark the culmination of 25 years of innovation than by naming this year’s game Madden NFL 25,” said Cam Weber, EA Sports' GM of American Football . “This year’s game will push the boundaries with gameplay and feature innovations that will lay a very strong foundation for the next 25 years of this storied franchise.”

As usual, there'll be a cover vote, with 32 all-time NFL greats and 32 present-day NFL stars in the frame to take the Madden NFL 25 cover. In other Madden news, the series has managed to reach 99 million units in lifetime sales, accumulating revenue of $3.7 billion.

Madden NFL 25 will be launching on August 27th, 2013.

I thought this was a joke from the first line on the front page. When i saw Madden 25, first thing that came to my head was "what the fuck? EA is planning to take the Franchise that far?" So what are they gonna do if they make a Madden in the year 2024?

Will John Madden be back? Will they include versions of previous games (like they did with 2009)? It's not an anniversary edition without these things. You want to make it special and memorable, then make it special and memorable. Don't cop out and deliver shit like you've done every year since 2006.

@3 thought out?? forcing gamers to play for countless hrs?? i dont mind a challange but the last list was insane. Playing over 8 seasons for the jerry rice one alone. Seems forcing gamers to keep playing is the way of the future.

This is absolutely stupid. They should've just put that it's the 25th anniversary of Madden somewhere on the cover like every other normal game company.. Put aside the fact that Madden 2024 will also be Madden 25, but unless they start changing up the way they name these games next year, Madden 15 being the sequel to Madden 25 is just asinine

yeah, ive never played a madden game on my profile, for one im English, but i watch the game regualry and always look at the achievements for them. Im more into FIFA than the Madden games, i find it hard to play the game when ive played the demos. But NFL is a great sport nevertheless and i was gonna buy NFL 13 from Blockbusters today, but its fucking £45 so i'll leave it

@14 just because it doesn't show on the dudes profile, doesn't mean he has never played it. Maybe he played it on a different account, or on a different system. It's kinda creepy you went back thru his game history to check too! At least he has his gamertag linked to his x360a account ;)

@17 correct pete_2 played with my mate as well on his PS3 but he hammered me 56-0 on 12. I dont know how to play the game so I'm not gonna play it am I?

Plus, at least NFL achievements are better than FIFA achievements.

If it's not an upgrade on last year's, I'll pass. I've been a huge Madden gamer since I was a kid but the past few years have been awful. Basically ever since it came to the Xbox360 and PS3.

Here's to hoping they can actually get it right.

Upgrade or not, I would love to play using the top players from the past. At least the ones I grew up watching.

This has much more appeal than the last few madden releases.

@26 They won't have the retired players because they are not part of the NFLPA. Unless EA makes a new deal with the retired players, they will just be a position and jersey number with stats. @20 I agree, it should be John Madden on the cover.

They really must be stupid.

Why not name it Madden NFL 14: 25 years.

Or something similar.

Madden 25 game development is going to get awkward in 2024.

Or maybe they are catching on that these yearly games are catching so much flakk and don't plan on being around in 10-15 years.. Easier to just do a roster update..

Feel free to bap me for being close minded, but I've always seen sports games as an oxymoron... if you want sports, you could always try playing them. This always feels like something for hardcore sports fans, to me. Or people gunning for achievements. That too.

Should be Madden 14 for the original title at regular price. Madden 14: 25th Anniversary for collectors edition price including additional content, like madden cards, legendary players, older uniforms, stadiums etc. Poor marketing plan.

I agree with anyone knocking Madden in this day and age. It's not just Madden, either. I've been thoroughly disappointed with every single EA Sports game I've played the last 4-5 years, aside from Fight Night. Madded+Fifa=updated roster and graphics, no real innovation. Thank God the NBA games are made by 2K. Those games actually change year-to-year and are of great quality. I was so happy when NBA2K13 won Sports Game of the Year.

Why are all you people saying it'll be confusing in 2024/25? This game will be long gone and the servers would have been switched off.

Jesus, some people just love to complain.
