Just because the Players Association and the billionaire owners can’t get their shit together doesn’t mean that we can’t enjoy our Madden. EA released a statement today assuring gamers that Madden NFL 12 will be released as planned in August. You'd better believe that as long as EA has licensing exclusivity—i.e., until 2013—they won't be letting something like real life get in the way of the juggernaut. Several new features are expected to be added to this year's edition, including surprise onside kicks...and possibly scabs.
