Online Team Play Will Not Be In Madden NFL 17

It is now officially confirmed that Madden 17 will not feature online team play.  The popular game mode is commonly referred to as OTP throughout the Madden community.

Madden NFL 17’s creative director, Rex Dickson, took to Twitter to confirm the news.

Although he hinted that it may make it’s way into Madden 18, he also noted that it is way too early to make any promises.

Online team play was not in either Madden 15 or Madden 16 but it was such a hit in previous versions of the game that many fans have been asking for it back for the last 2 years.

For those of you unfamiliar with OTP, it is a game mode where you and 2 friends can play a 3v3 game against another set of 3 friends online.

Madden 17 is scheduled for release on August 23rd, 2016 on the PS4, XBOX One, PS3, and XBOX 360. For more Madden 17 information, check out our Madden 17 news center.

  1. Give the people what they want. Not like it matters, but I will not purchase another Madden until they bring this back. Team play should be an option in the ultimate team sport…

  2. No one cares anymore to even post lol nbk 2k and fifa i guess again right for another year

  3. Want purchase another madden until team play is brought back

    1. I never missed out on madden but I’m bout to until team play come back

  4. I have been a loyal fan of madden and I must say I will not be purchasing another copy until OTP is available. Madden should be adding features and game modes not taking away. I also think there should be a spectating mode in franchise for those who do not make it to playoffs or the Super Bowl.

  5. Some bullshit fuck franchise mode give us what we want silly air heads

  6. That is the same thing I havent played a madden since team play but yet the post says for 3 years that OTP is the #1 request but yet still wont make OTP?? Why make madden n worse u have Gronk on the cover?? Ill just get ready for another fifa game

  7. In reality, football is played with teammates who play against other players across the country..Its what we call a team sport..Madden NFL for game consoles shouldn’t be any different..Its no fun and gets old real quick playing a game by yourself against another lonely guy..Save that for H2H..Bring team play back!!

  8. Will not buy another madden game in till team play is in

  9. Will not purchase it until team play is back. And haven’t since, Give the people what they want.
