The NFL is experiencing a very unique problem that threatens the 2020 season, and Madden 21 could be affected.
This problem is players opting out of the 2020 NFL season due to coronavirus concerns, which raises many questions for this year’s Madden.
So how will Madden 21 address players opting out of the 2020 season?
Players Opting Out
While the opt outs started slowly, they’re starting to pick up pace, and the list includes some very important players.
So far the team most affected is the New England Patriots, who will reportedly be losing Patrick Chung, Dont’a Hightower, and more for the 2020 NFL season.
With so many high profile players already opting out, we imagine this will only become more common before opening day.

If players do indeed opt out of the 2020 NFL season and it proceeds, the game would have to include current rosters.
