EA Sports has officially announced the next Madden NFL title, and the publisher is skipping "14" to honor the game's 25th Anniversary, and is calling it Madden NFL 25. The game will be hitting the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on the 27th August.
The cover will be voted on by fans, and will feature two NFL greats, one from the past and one from the present. The two will be picked from a bracket of 32 all-time NFL greats and a bracket of 32 modern NFL superstars. Players will be able to start voting on the 11th March on ESPN.
The series originated in 1987 as John Madden Football, released on the Commodore 64 as a companion to the classic Earl Weaver Baseball released on the Amiga.
