Update: Madden NFL 16 is now available. We have the best Madden 16 tips and strategies on both offense and defense.
EA Sports used to release the first information on their new Madden NFL game during halftime of the Super Bowl. They stopped doing that a few years ago but the Super Bowl still marks the first time anyone starts thinking about the new game.
Madden 16 will slowly start to creep into the mind of sports gamers over the next few months. One question that is always asked is when is the release date for Madden NFL 16?
That information usually isn’t released until E3 in June but we’ve been doing this a really long time so we pretty much know exactly when Madden 16 will be released to the public.
Here is some of our research on previous EA Sports’ Madden NFL release dates:
Madden 15 was released on Tuesday, August 26th, 2014.
Madden 25 was released on Tuesday, August 27th, 2013.
Madden 13 was released on Tuesday, August 28th, 2012.
Madden 12 was released on Tuesday, August 30th, 2011.
So we are looking at a Madden 16 release date of Tuesday, August 25th, 2015. It is the last Tuesday of August and it has been that way for 5 years. I’d be absolutely shocked if Madden 16 came out on a different date.
Again, this isn’t official in any way. EA Sports will release that information in June along with some features, a trailer, and game news. It will probably be preceded by a Madden 16 cover vote simply because that is what happens each and every year. If you are interested, we outline our top 3 choices for the Madden 16 cover here.
There will also likely be some Madden 16 hype around the NFL Draft which runs from late April into early May.
EA Sports has been working on Madden NFL 16 for a long time now and we can look forward to more information in the next few months. We have a Madden 16 wishlist if you want to submit your ideas.
What platforms will Madden NFL 16 be released on? Will it be on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 or only next-gen consoles?
That announcement hasn’t been made but if we look at how the transition from PS2 to PS3 and XBOX to XBOX 360 went, there is a very good chance Madden 16 will be released on the XBOX 360 and PS3.
