EA is closing in on a couple of milestones for its Madden NFL franchise.
The publisher has announced that the game will celebrate its 25th anniversary by ditching the upcoming season’s year in the title for Madden NFL 25. The game is set to launch on August 27th.
EA has also revealed that the American football series has sold roughly 99m units, which translates to a lifetime revenue of $3.7bn.
This year’s offering will most likely take it past the 100m sales mark – something only Need for Speed, FIFA, and The Sims franchises have accomplished for the publisher.
The original John Madden Football was released back in 1988 on personal computers, and the NFL license was picked up for the series with Madden 94.
