Electronic Arts was in a small challenging position in 2020. The company understood the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S were arriving but also knew that Madden NFL 21 was going to launch weeks ahead of the consoles came out. That meant that the devs needed to focus quite a little of their attention about the Xbox One and PS4. Despite very solid sales numbers for Madden NFL 21, there was rather a little public outcry. EA tried to react to the lovers as best they can by offering several updates.
One of those updates was specifically geared towards an update for the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S. The patch souped-up the images and also the dev team maintained the gameplay was also improved. A big element to this patch was that the game has been said to be leaning more on statistical evaluation. It's difficult to say precisely how much the update really upgraded the game. There were certainly some improvements but it wasn't like it felt like a whole new game. In 2021, Electronic Arts will be well served to focus first and foremost on the new consoles. Better graphics, better gameplay, and clearly benefiting from greater power under the hood will go a long way towards demonstrating users the business wants to win back those that threw up their hands in frustration last fall.
