EA has confirmed that it will be changing the name and logo of Washington's football team to something generic in its upcoming release of Madden NFL 21, as the real-life team goes through the process of changing both.
"We are pleased to see Washington's decision to change their team name and visual identity," an EA rep told USgamer. "We are quickly working to update Madden NFL 21 to feature a generic Washington team, while we await final word on the updated team name and logo design."
“Changes to the name and logo will come via title updates that will download automatically. The first changes will be available to our EA Access players and will include audio/commentary updates; motion graphics and presentation updates; stadium art, environments, crowd gear and signage updates; and uniform updates,” the EA spokesperson adds. “Players may continue to see some outdated Washington references in other areas of the game at launch, but we are committed to removing all of those from the game in additional title updates coming shortly after launch.” If you want to Buy Madden NFL 21 Coins, we z2u.com can give you a very low price, welcome to buy.
The change will be incorporated by way of an automatic title update, which along with the team uniforms will also make changes to audio and commentary, graphics, stadium art, in-game signage, and more. It's an unprecedented alteration, but EA warned that some "outdated Washington references" may still be seen at launch. Ironically, the logo also features prominently in the latest Madden 21 gameplay trailer, although that predates the name change announcement.
Usually, a name change for an NFL team would come much earlier in the offseason after extensive planning and wouldn’t require such hasty changes, but the circumstances Washington’s name change has followed a different path.
