The franchise sees a big spike in digital sales with the newest entry.
As the classic song sings- the times, they are a’changing. The newest entry in the American football series, Madden NFL 20, is out now, just in time for the season. It’s been successful, as one would expect, but it hit a new milestone that shows just how much the market has changed over the years, with a hard swing toward digital.
As announced via publisher EA, the game scored a big touchdown in the first week with digital sales. It’s the biggest ever digital launch for the franchise. While no numbers were given, it’s undoubtedly a pretty impressive feat. While the physical charts probably won’t be too far off (at least in the US), it goes to show how much digital has become a force in a relatively short time in the gaming marketplace.
Madden NFL 20 is available now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. You can check out our review of the pigskin throwing simulator through here, and don’t forget to take a good look at the best ratings so you can build the team of your dream.
