According to reports, the Madden 25 demo may be getting a August 13 release date for the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3.
Madden 25 Creative Director and former college football player Rex Dickson, was paraphrased saying “week of August 12 I believe…”, when asked when football fans could expect a preview of this year’s Madden instalment.
Though there hasn’t been an official announcement from EA, it would be a safe bet to expect the release to fall somewhere within the rumored August 13 date, considering the Madden 13 demo dropped on August 14.
Last year’s demo included a matchup between the New York Giants and the San Francisco 49ers in honour of the NFC Championship game two seasons ago. It also let users play a game between the Washington Redskins (to demonstrate rookie Robert Griffin III’s sorcery) and the Seattle Seahawks (to show off the new Nike uniforms).
Conveniently, the 49ers, Seahawks, and Redskins all ended up being three of the strongest and most used teams because of their intimidating Madden defense and mobile QBs.
If EA were to use a similar formula for this year’s demo, then expect a game between the Falcons and the 49ers (last year’s NFC Championship matchup). As well as a game between the Lions (featuring newly acquired Reggie Bush, the best Madden WR in Megatron, and to honor the cover athlete Barry Sanders), and the Vikings (if a RB is on the cover, why not showcase the best RB today?).
The full version of Madden 25 is expected to release on August 27 for Xbox 360 and PS3, and in November for Xbox One and PS4.
