Madden NFL 19 has launched for the current-gen consoles and PC and with that, the Madden NFL lifetime sales have surpassed 130 million since the franchise was introduced in 1988 for MS-DOS.
EA Sports revealed Madden NFL lifetime sales following the “strong opening weekend” for Madden NFL 19.
However, consoles and PC are not only the only platforms where the Madden NFL franchise has achieved milestones.
EA Sports has revealed that on mobile, the franchise saw 73 million installs and believe that this number will spike significantly with the launch of Madden Overdrive. According to executive vice president at EA Sport, Cam Weber:
It’s incredible how many people have enjoyed Madden NFL over the years, and the impact it’s had on not only teaching the sport of football, but growing the love of it as well.
Speaking of Madden NFL 19, Yahoo recently simulated the entire NFL 2018 season using the game and the results are pretty interesting.
According to the simulation, The Jaguars won the Super Bowl defeating the Eagles by 13-7.
However, not everything was bad for the Eagles as they managed to win NFC East for the second time in the row. Furthermore, Josh Allen and Tremaine Edmunds won the Offensive and Defensive Rookie of the Year awards.
The following are a couple of highlights from the NFL 2018 season simulation.
- All good things come to an end – Despite his astonishingly good (virtual) season, Brady did decide to hang ‘em up. In addition to Brady, Eli Manning, Marshawn Lynch, Terrell Suggs, Brandon Marshall, Larry Fitzgerald, and Frank Gore called it a career.
- End of an (elite) era in Baltimore – While most expect Joe Flacco to hold onto the starting QB job this season, in ‘Madden,’ the Ravens wasted no time going to Lamar Jackson, who threw for more than 3,800 yards and 25 TDs.
Madden NFL 19 is an American Football simulator developed by EA Sports for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
