If there is one thing that e-gamers want to see, it is a video game based on their favorite real sport per year.  In the case of Madden 17, EA has a lot to live up to for one of the most popular football game simulators, and this is the news of the release date and room for improvement for the 2016 edition of the game. 

Of course, what potential fans of this game really want to know is the release date, and the good news is that it is probably only weeks away.  After all, the last two Madden games had their release date announced sometime in the middle or at the end of April, so Madden 17 will have its release date of its release date sometime around there. 

At some time in the month of May, there is the expectation of who the cover athlete will be.  EA usually has the fans vote for who will be on the cover, and that election will probably begin in early May and be decided in late May. 

As for the actual release date, look for Madden 17 sometime in late August because that is the general tradition for a new Madden game to be launched.  There have been talks of a lot of older generation consoles not getting a version of Madden 17, but that might not be the case as there have been reports of Gamestop stocking PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of the game on their page. 

There hasn't been any news of the beta for the game, but it is quite possible that those who are a member of the EA Access could get a chance to play the game early.  There will be more revealed about Madden 17 at E3, the Electronic Entertainment Expo, at Los Angeles, as EA will be doing a three-day event at Club Nokia from June 12 to June 14. 

At that time, the new features will be unveiled.  Hopefully, there will be more changes to Madden 17 besides an updated roster, as the game does receive its last roster update after the Super Bowl.  Gotta Be Mobile suggests many changes such as an improved party system so that it is easier to start and finish a game with someone you are playing against online.  Other improvements include Kinect Interface, Improved Challenged Plays, Better Commentary, Better Two Minute Drill AI, as well as more realistic graphics, weather, and anything else to make the game feel more authentic. 

So what else do people want to see for Madden 17?  The Gazette Review says that one feature that had better return is Ultimate Team.  This is a game mode where card packs can be opened by buying points at the Xbox and PlayStation store, and gamers can also earn coins by buying the points.  This Ultimate Team has been used on many EA Sports games, so it seems a natural fit for Madden 17.
