Fans shouldn’t expect too many big content drops for Madden 22. Speaking with IGN about Madden 22’s rocky launch, executive producer Seann Graddy discussed the roadmap for Madden 22 and beyond, saying new modes aren’t the priority right now.
“I would say [the roadmap is] probably slightly less ambitious than years past because we are really focused on a few core areas of Madden 22 and also getting started up on Madden 23 in a big way,” Graddy says. “So I will stand by what we’ve always said the last couple of years: we’re a live service and we’ll continue to update the game, but we’re definitely not going to be talking about a brand new mode.”
In the past, developers have dropped new modes and features in free updates to the game. They include features like Superstar KO, an arcade mode that proved popular with more casual players.

One big addition the team made sure to implement was adding scouting to franchise mode. The much-requested feature was delayed back in September, but was added as part of the big October title update that’s available today.
