The teaser featured two Madden 22 coins -- one noticeably older than the otherand causing a disturbance inside a barn before coming out to reveal the date for the announcement for the cover.
We have just a few more days until we find out who will be on the cover for this year's edition. We decided to look through some of the candidates who could be qualified for the distinction. Below are our top-three options for both an individual cover and our top choices in the event that EA Sports decides to go with a two-player cover, which they appear to indicate they will be doing in the teaser below.
Four of Madden NFL's most recent cover stars were quarterbacks. It's only natural that our top pick would be someone who can line up under center. Bills quarterback Josh Allen is an ideal pick for the latest installment of the video game franchise, particularly following a 2020 season in which he became an MVP-level quarterback. Allen set career highs in passing yards and passing touchdowns this year and put Buffalo in the process of securing getting a Super Bowl appearance after appearing in the AFC Championship. Allen is certainly a superstar at this point in his career, and Bills Mafia would love to have him become the first player in franchise history to have his picture -- and the team's logo as the cover.
If you're not going to be the quarterback's cover and you don't want to cover the quarterback, I don't see how you can overlook Derrick Henry. There was even a leak in March which suggested Henry might be the cover's favorite athlete. While it remains unknown what he'll look like on this year's cover, Henry is certainly deserving of the honor. The big-bodied running back sometimes appears as if he's playing a video game, since his speed is almost every week. Henry led the league in rushing back-to-back seasons and also beat every skill position player in 2020 for the most years in a scrimmage (2141). Madden NFL covers are not possible if you have 126.7 yards per game.
While you may scoff at the notion of a defensive player finding his way to the Madden NFL cover, it isn't unprecedented at all. Richard Sherman was the last defensive player to serve as the cover player for the franchise in Madden NFL 15 and prior to that we witnessed players like Troy Polamalu (shared with Larry Fitzgerald, Madden NFL 10) and Ray Lewis (Madden NFL 2005) join the cover as well. Donald is the most impressive player on the cover side, being a member for four consecutive seasons of the 99 Club. With that in mind there aren't any other opportunities to climb in the game than finally climbing onto the top of the list.
After the teaser was released earlier this week, everyone thought that it was the combination. Of course, Tom Brady is widely called the greatest player of all time (G.O.A.T) and Patrick Mahomes is looked at as the next great quarterback to follow in the footsteps of his predecessors. So, it's only natural to think that there's a chance -- or likelihood -- that there are two athletes on the cover. But when EA Sports trots out an older goat and a newborn goat in its teaser, it's difficult not to think of Brady and Mahomes. Both quarterbacks have appeared featured on the Madden NFL Cover before, with Brady playing for Madden NFL 18, and Mahomes taking the lead in Madden NFL 20.
The combination could be monotonous, but it is a good idea. It's as if they appeared appearing on the cover just a few minutes back. This is fitting, given that they went toe-to–toe in the Super Bowl last year.
EA Job Listing hints Madden Might Be Going To Switch
Madden NFL used to be a regular appearance on Nintendo platforms, but we've not seen it for nearly a decade since Madden NFL 13 on Wii U. EA is still regularly releasing updates to FIFA (even even if they're "legacy editions"), EA previously announced that they were not planning to launch it on Switch in the year 2018 but a new job advertisement suggested Madden might be finally coming to Switch.
Doctre81 on YouTube discovered the job listing "Online Software Engineer (C++ - Madden" back in November 2020. For the requirements of the job one section requires two years of work experience with "Microsoft, Sony or Nintendo gaming consoles". Although it may not seem to be much, prior EA job advertisements didn't list Nintendo in their selection criteria.
At the very minimum, EA could be investigating the possibility of a release. It is worth noting that EA had previously said that it would release seven Switch games in the 12 month duration in June 2020. June 2021 is just a few months away and there have been six confirmed games in the past few months and that includes Apex Legends earlier this week.
There's one more to be determined, however Madden's release calendar indicates that EA could be waiting until Madden NFL 22. This could be a better option than a Madden NFL 21 port, since they usually launch in August. Whatever the case, let's pray that it's not a legacy edition, eh?
