We researched the release dates for the last 6 Madden video games.  You can check them out below.

  • Madden 18 Release Date – Friday, August 25th, 2017
  • Madden 17 Release Date – Tuesday, August 23rd, 2016
  • Madden 16 Release Date – Tuesday, August 25th, 2015

  • Madden 25 Release Date – Tuesday, August 27th, 2013

For the past few years, XBOX One gamers have also had the opportunity to play Madden games 5 days before release day through a program called EA Access.  It costs $4.99 per month or $29.99 per year and gets you 10 hours of access to the game up to 5 days before the official release date.

Look for that program to continue in Madden 19.  That puts the earlier possible date that you can play Madden 19 at August 16th.
