Madden NFL used to be a normal face on Nintendo platforms, but we have not seen it for almost a decade after Madden NFL 13 on Wii U. EA is still bringing us yearly updates for FIFA (even though they are"legacy editions"), EA previously said they didn't intend to launch it on Switch in 2018, however a current job listing indicated Madden might eventually be arriving.
This discovery comes from YouTuber Doctre81, that discovered a listing titled"Online Software Engineer - (C++) - Madden", dating back to November 2020. Under the job demands, one section asks for two decades of expertise working on"Microsoft, Sony or Nintendo game consoles". Which may not sound like much, but previous EA job listings have not included Nintendo in their standards.
At the very least, EA might be investigating a possible release. It's worth keeping in mind that back in June 2020, EA verified it would launch seven Shift matches in that 12-month period. June 2021 is just a couple of months off, and we have had six matches confirmed since then, for example Apex Legends before this week.
That leaves you more to go, but awarded Madden's annual release schedule, EA could be waiting before the inevitable Madden NFL 22 -- instead of some Madden NFL 21 port -- believing they traditionally launch in August. Either way, let's just hope it is not another legacy edition, eh?
This year's rival teams have been determined. The Kansas City Chiefs will go up from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in a conflict of the NFL's top quarterbacks, Patrick Mahomes and Tom Brady. As is currently an annual tradition, Digital Arts is celebrating the Super Bowl with a Madden NFL simulation. This year's Madden NFL 21 simulation game seems to predict a fantastic game.
