While some may be offended by the notion of a defensive player making his way onto the Madden NFL cover, it isn't at all unusual. Madden 22 coins was the last defense player to make the Madden NFL 15 cover athlete. Ray Lewis (Madden NFL 2005) and Troy Polamalu were also there. If you're looking to that particular side of the ball for a cover athlete, there's none more dominant than Donald, who has been in the 99 Club for four straight seasons. With this in mind the only place you can climb in the game is finally getting on the cover.
Following the release of the teaser earlier in the week, everyone thought that it was the result of a combination. Of course, Tom Brady is widely described as the greatest player of all time (G.O.A.T) and Patrick Mahomes is looked at as the next great quarterback to follow the footsteps of his predecessors. Therefore, it's only normal to think that there's a possibility -- or even a possibility -- that there are two athletes on the cover. But when EA Sports trots out an elder goat and a baby goat in its teaser,, it's hard not to think of Brady and Mahomes. Both quarterbacks have appeared on the Madden NFL Cover before, with Brady doing it for Madden NFL 18, and Mahomes taking the lead in Madden NFL 20.
It's admittedly an odd choice if this was the combo since it's as if the two of them were just on the cover a short time before. It's a good thing, as they went toe to toe in the Super Bowl last year.
EA Job Listing: Madden Could Be Coming To A Switch
Madden NFL was once a regular feature on Nintendo platforms. It's been more than a decade since the release of Madden NFL 13 on Wii U. EA previously stated that they would not be the game being released on the Switch in the year 2018. However recent job listings indicated that Madden might be coming to Switch.
Doctre81 on YouTube found the job listing "Online Software Engineer (C++ ) - Madden" earlier in November 2020. For the requirements of the job one section requires 2 years of working experience on "Microsoft, Sony or Nintendo game consoles". That may seem like a lot however, prior EA jobs listings didn't include Nintendo within their selection criteria.
EA might be considering the possibility of releasing. It's important to remember that in June 2020, EA confirmed it would launch seven Switch games within the 12-month time frame. We have six confirmed games as of June 2020. These include Apex Legends which was announced earlier this week.
There's still one to go, but given the Madden's release schedule each year, EA could potentially be waiting until the release of cheap Madden 22 coins release - as in contrast to a Madden NFL 21 port - given that they normally release in August. Or, let's hope it isn't another legacy edition, shall we?
