The team has also added over 100 new generic heads which will be available in create-a-player.


For rosters, some adjustments were made to make Franchise mode more dynamic and to better reflect aging superstars and promising young players. We started with removing the ‘Star+’ dev-trait on many older veterans who have met or surpassed their full potential through their careers.

You can expect some tweaks to the OVR formula as well. We’ve modified the outside linebacker group to get them more closely aligned to middle linebackers, which will improve ratings crossovers when changing a player’s position from one to the other to support specific defensive schemes and playbooks. This change will prevent significant OVR shifts when changing positions and keeps players within the same range across the LB positions.  Along with this, Ball Carrier Vision has been added to the Scrambling QB archetype to better characterize a very important skill for this type of player.


During the Madden NFL 21 season, we started using the average of the top five speeds recorded by each player, via Next Gen Stats, to get a better evaluation for our Speed rating. Using real-life data from the NFL, and accounting for player performance on a weekly and yearly basis, we will deliver a more accurate representation of player speed on the Madden gridiron. 

In addition to the speed data, we find it really important to take into account recorded 40-yard-dash times and watch game film to see how it translates to game-speed. To summarize, we’re matching up the Next Gen Stats data and combining numbers with actual game footage to improve our creation process of Speed and Acceleration ratings for Madden NFL 22.
