In response to player feedback, EA Sports has released a list of changes that will be implemented in Madden NFL 22 prior to the game's release on August 20. Almost every year, EA updates Madden with a new look, as well as numerous new features and enhancements, and in recent years, the company has worked hard to incorporate player feedback into the game's development.
The development of Madden 22 has been extremely transparent this year, with EA informing its fans on a regular basis about recent changes to the project, some of which include new crowd animations and dynamic gameplay. EA recently began a Madden NFL 22 playtest in order to put these new features to the test and assess the game's overall stability.
There appear to be numerous points of contention as a result of the development team's efforts to make the game more realistic. One such point of contention is player movement, which received feedback that was "almost evenly split between like and dislike."Since last year, EA has used NFL Next Gen Stats to assist in the development of Madden's AI and ratings, culminating in what is referred to as "Next Gen Player Movement...", which will only be available on next-generation consoles in the future. Despite the fact that EA acknowledges "how significant that adjustment is for players," the company is confident that "a more realistic movement system... is what's best for our players..."Despite this, the team is still working to improve certain aspects of player movement in response to feedback received so far.
Many players have reason to believe that their voices are not being heard at all. It's important to note, however, that the development team appears to be confident that some of these Madden 22 changes will feel significantly better after the game's release and possibly a couple of patches are applied. Hopefully, these enhancements will allow Madden 22 to live up to the high expectations that were set back in June.
The Madden franchise is in desperate need of a rebound this year after Madden 21 received some of the worst reviews in the franchise's history, particularly from fans. Madden 21's PlayStation 4 version currently has an astonishing 0.2 user score on Metacritic, with many of the reviews expressing disgust at the game's lack of originality. Thanks to the addition of new features and a renewed emphasis on player-driven improvements, Madden NFL 22 should finally restore the franchise to its former glory.

There is an entire section of the dev notes that is devoted to Madden's Franchise mode, which is one of the game's oldest and most popular game modes, but also one of its least perfect. Several players have expressed dissatisfaction with the brand-new fatigue system that Electronic Arts has implemented, which appears to require extensive tweaking. In an attempt to mimic the NFL, “fatigue will be progressive... increasing in magnitude as your team progresses further into the season,” says the author once more. Some of the issues addressed in the Gridiron Notes include free agency, draft classes, and simulation statistics, all of which have been a source of contention in Madden's franchise mode for several seasons. For long-time Madden fans, it is hoped that some of the Franchise improvements in Madden 22 will help revitalize and reinvigorate this game mode.
