Madden 21 is on the way for PS5 and Xbox Series X. But the game will come out first on current gen consoles.
Let’s go over everything we know so far and which console is the right fit for you.
Madden 21 release date
We finally have an official release date for Madden 21! It will arrive on 28 August.
This is a few weeks later than previous versions, but given the coronavirus lockdowns causing everyone to work from home it is understandable.

There will be new ball-carrier skill stick controls, as well as pass rush controls, better tackling, and custom controlled celebrations.
Madden 21 Price
While Madden 21 is available for pre-order now and Dual Entitlement is an option, we’ve seen next gen consoles invite new pricing schemes with NBA 2K21 costing $10 more for next gen copies.
This could mean different pricing for Madden 21 editions on next gen consoles.

Madden 21 on PS4 vs PS5
All these delays just means more time to decide which Sony console you should play Madden 21 on. Allow us to help with that.
Madden 21 on PS4 will be a safe, reliable way to play the game without investing in an entirely new console along with it.
While the game is being designed with next-gen capabilities in mind, the PS4 release should still be just as functional. This also means no waiting in line for the next-gen console’s release.

Madden 21 on PS5 will be the series’ first leap to next-gen technology. And with competitor 2K Games signing with the NFL to make football video games again, this combined pressure should mean EA steps up big for Madden 21.
Sure you’ll have to pick up an entirely new console, and maybe even wait for access to the console on release day, but this is the way to play Madden 21 to its full potential with all the extra processing power and more of the PS5.
FIFA 21 players are getting a free upgrade from PS4 to PS5.
