As we forecast all the way back in February, Madden NFL 16 is set to be released on August 25th, 2015.  That announcement shouldn’t have shocked anyone who follows EA Sports or the Madden games.  The first Madden 16 news was supposed to come out in May but some retailers have released a little nugget of information early on their websites.

According to both Amazon and GameStop, Madden 16 will feature new controls.  Here is the exact quote:

EA Sports focused pretty heavily on making defense more realistic in Madden 15.  It looks like in Madden 16, they are setting their sights on improving the passing game.
