For the First Time in the Series, Madden 16 Will Have Women in its Crowds
Wait... there weren't women in the stands before?
This year's Madden game will have women in the stands for the first time in series history.
Madden NFL 16 features a host of improvements to player movement and behavior, graphical fidelity, and apparently gender representation in crowds. According to an interview with Madden developers on GameSpot's E3 stage, this year's installment adds females to the people filling the stadiums, something that no other Madden had done before.
This follows the earlier announcement that FIFA 16 will add female soccer teams.

“We're excited about FIFA adding women players, but we wouldn't let them steal all the thunder," a Madden developer said. "So we've added women to our crowds."
It's surprising that women hadn't been added before, but this is still a good step in reaching greater representation in games.
