Whatever this "first look" is, it will be followed by yet another EA event on June 11. That's when EA Play 2020 takes place, and with Madden 21 being one of EA's biggest games of 2020, you can expect it to be featured during the show. You can watch EA Play 2021 live on GameSpot.

Madden 21 features Baltimore Ravens standout QB Lamar Jackson on its cover. The game is expected to release around August, ahead of the start of the NFL season (which is scheduled to go forward despite ongoing COVID-19 concerns). Madden 21 has so far been confirmed for release on Xbox One and Xbox Series X, while it's also expected to come to PS4 and PS5, as well as PC. Meanwhile, the NFL is set to vote on keeping EA as the exclusive developer of simulation games.

Everyone who buys Madden 21 on Xbox One by December 31 can upgrade to the Xbox Series X version for free until March 31, 2021. Since the game hasn't been properly announced for PS4 and PS5 yet, it remains to be seen if there will be a similar free upgrade promotion for Sony's system.
