Shockwaves ran through both the football and sports gaming communities after news broke in December 2021 that the legend, John Madden, had passed. The iconic coach was responsible for so many Hall of Fame moments both on the sidelines, as well as in the broadcasting booth.

However, his greatest lasting legacy on the game is probably the legendary EA Sports Madden franchise, as the series has been one of the most successful in the history of sports games. To honor the legend, EA Sports has selected John Madden to grace the cover of Madden 23. It will be the first time the coach features on the cover since Madden 2000, 23 years ago.
