I remember buying and booting up the Xbox 360 version of  Madden NFL 06 at launch and wishing I hadn’t. While the title looked great, those who know my pain also know that the next gen version lacked a ton of features that were available on the Xbox and PlayStation 2 version of the game.

I reached out to EA Sports asking if Connected Careers would be available in the Xbox One/PlayStation 4 version of Madden NFL 25 and was told that “Connected Franchise will transition in full from Xbox360/PS3 to Xbox One/PS4.” So, in addition to Madden 25 showing a great deal of promise from a gameplay standpoint, it appears that a repeat of a watered down next gen release will not be the case.

That news should bring a smile to depth-hungry NFL fans.
