To make the game happen, EA Sports partnered with collegiate licensing company CLC to make sure it had the FBS schools, traditions, uniforms and playbooks -- among other things -- ready to go for the game. Over 100 teams will be in the game.
For now, EA Sports is planning to move forward without rosters that include the names, images or likenesses of real college players. Current NCAA rules prohibit athletes from selling their NIL rights while in college.
However, those rules are likely to be changed at some point in the coming year -- by the NCAA, state legislatures or Congress. It's not yet clear whether the evolving rules will allow for the kind of group licensing arrangements that would be needed for EA Sports to negotiate with athletes to use their names in the game.
they have, but you need ncaa 14 to do it.Incoming College-skin Madden game...pass from me.
Lots of people saying to just remaster NCAA 14 as it has more features than Madden has had for years
I'm exactly the same.I'd be more excited about this if it was anyone other than EA .
Expectations are low so I guess they have that working for them at least.
Expecting it to have micro transactions plastered all over it. Buy new studs for you cleats for only $3, on sale from $3.99 for two days only!I'm exactly the same.
I'm not a huge gamer at all. I've never bought into FIFA vs PES or Madden vs the other hundred alternatives that GG.exe has tried to get us excited about over the years.
I do know that I've been hugely, hugely disappointed by every EA Sports game (so FIFA & Madden) that I've bought since approximately NCAA 13 / Madden 14. And it's gotten so much worse as time's passed with the total focus on online play and micro-transactions.
So while I did half-way firm up when I initially saw this news yesterday, it was quickly tempered by the reality of what EA produce these days.
Clemson have been smashed in the semi twice just like Notre DameND want no part of the new college football game until NIL is established. Which is a shame, as who else is going to make a push for the playoffs then get snashed in the semi.
