Madden NFL 22’s cover athlete – alongside, we assume, first gameplay details – will be revealed on 17th June. A teaser trailer uploaded to the franchise’s various social media accounts show a goat and a kid, which would seemingly corroborate rumours that quarterbacks Tom Brady and Patrick Mahomes are set to front this year’s release.
The trailer also features a cameo from former Madden NFL 12 cover star Peyton Hillis, who won a competition bracket to grace the box art. It’s possible, then, that if the rumours about Brady and Mahomes aren't correct, EA Sports may hold a contest to decide this year’s athlete. All will be revealed on 17th June, we suppose – unless, of course, the details leak beforehand.
