    Online franchise mode goes untouched for Madden NFL 12

    Post by TheDarkKnight50 on July 9th 2011, 10:01 pm

    As soon as EA Sports announced all the improvements for Franchise mode back in May the questions started flowing in on whether those enhancements would apply to Online Franchise mode as well. Having avoided addressing the topic since EA Sports today finally admitted that Online Franchise has gotten absolutely no additions in Madden NFL 12.

    When it comes to the tight schedule of an annual development cycle, we have to make tough decisions, and it became apparent as we continued to work through our campaign that there was no way to deliver a deep, fully connected Online Franchise experience that you deserve this year. Therefore, there will be no additions to Online Franchise mode in Madden NFL 12.

    Last year EA announced that franchise as a whole hadn’t been worked on and now this time around it is Online Franchise – despite those improvements in the offline mode seemingly well designed to apply with the online structure. Though the company is now stating that the mode is a priority going forward it is hard to completely believe that after citing low usage numbers as the reason for not supporting it fully after launch in Madden 10, getting no attention in Madden 11, and now having been completely passed over in Madden 12.

    Not too surprised about this they probably won't decide to support it more until more people play it

    Ugh... That's pretty lame in itself. Not sure why EA talks about delivering the most authentic simulation, when it seems as if they only want to deliver those things in a few game modes. How does one aspect of a game get passed over twice??? Sheesh, unacceptable.

    I really figured they would have added 'something' to the online franchise this year. Lame they didn't...

    TOTALLY agreed! Unacceptable. They put quite a bit of new and great stuff into offline franchise, I just find it weird they couldn't copy the code and duplicate it for online dynasties. Pretty disappointing. LeagueManger looks much better than last year though, so using it to run the league should really make things a lot smoother. The main thing I want is better gameplay, and I must say.. if Madden 12 is anything like NCAA 12's gameplay.. Madden 12 should be one hell of a game this year!
