This Is Why Madden Isn’t on PC
Football fans who play their games on PC will be more than aware by now that EA hasn’t released a Madden game on the platform for quite some time now. In fact, the last title in the franchise to release on the platform was way back in 2007.
As such a huge franchise for EA Sports, some players may be wondering why the franchise’s latest releases miss the platform out. Well, it turns out that while Madden may sell its fair share of copies on consoles, there’s just no demand or interest for it on PC at the moment.
In an interview with GameInformer, Senior Vice President of EA Sports, Matt Bilbey said, “PC is literally based on demand. There’s still the high demand for FIFA on the PC globally because of the global appetite for the game. I think that’s less so with Madden, but I think if that changes and an opportunity presents itself, I think we would definitely leverage the opportunity.”
EA Tiburon Vice President Cam Weber added: “it used to be a good business, and then it declined and the economics just didn’t make sense anymore.”
While it’s certainly disappointing to hear, it’s not all bad news. Perhaps if EA Sports saw a rise in the demand for Madden to hit the platform once more, they’d be willing to give it a chance. Here’s hoping, anyway.
