Event Details

  • “There isn't drama or deeper story here,” Dickson said, though his departure works well immediately. “This decision was created after many discussions for some other leaders for the team. We collectively agreed this was the most effective path forward for all involved.

    “This can be as much in my opinion and my loved ones as it is about giving they, the town and the Madden franchise an opportunity for a brand new direction,” he added.

    Dickson’s tenure was one largely of turnaround, coinciding with Madden’s launch about the current console generation in late 2013. He arrived 1 year after Cam Weber was brought about board as group president (later becoming president on the EA Tiburon studio) to present the series a fresh long-term vision after a period of repeated adjustments to priority while keeping your focus.

    Under Dickson, Madden NFL introduced the Connected Franchise mode in 2012’s Madden NFL 13, brought aboard Brian Murray of NFL Films to oversee much-needed changes to your series’ broadcast presentation, and introduced a fresh live commentary system with Madden NFL 17. Last year, under Mike Young, Madden NFL 18 delivered the series’ inaugural story mode, good enough to win it Polygon’s Sports Video Game from the Year.

    Throughout that span, Madden also made numerous gameplay improvements and changes, aiming to make the game’s many systems (particularly defense) more understandable towards the users, while supporting all of them with things like better blocking AI.

    Dickson credited many “player first advocates” around the development team at Tiburon and thanked several community leaders. “I am full of hope when I consider the passion of those that will get the flag and fight on for the future with the Madden franchise.”

    Dickson gave no indication what his future plans are; he previously previously handled EA’s Medal of Honor series, and so on 2011’s Homefront for Kaos Studios and THQ. Polygon has reached over to EA Sports for https://www.mmoah.com/madden-mobile
