Madden 15 released yesterday and a Maddenoliday officially commenced. The game is by far the best in years, and did a lot to take a significant step forward. As we discussed in the review, Madden 15 is a whole new NFL experience. However, it appears some gamers may be losing their experience after playing through it.
Connect Franchise is one of the high-profile game modes for the Madden 15 experience, and the ability to play through a full franchise online is a huge draw for gamers. Unfortunately, it seems that some are having troubles with head-to-head contests not saving properly.
Madden senior game designer Josh Looman commented via his Twitter saying, “We’re aware that some users’ wins/losses aren’t being recorded for online CFM H2H games and are working to fix it as soon as possible. We’ll provide you with updates as soon as we have them. Thanks for your patience.”
At this point, it appears that the only games to have been compromised are head-to-head contests. Playing your online connected franchise against the computer looks to be working just fine and should save as normal.
With the saving issues currently being worked out, it may be best to stick to the play now modes for your competitions until EA is able to work out the bug. With the preseason wrapping up this weekend and the opening day roster update slated for next week, gamers have some reason to wait on their franchise experience anyways.
Regardless of the save issue, if there was a year for you to get into Madden, this is it. Pick up Madden 15 on Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, or PlayStation 4 today.
