In early July, EA announced that "Madden 21" would delete all references to the name and logo of the Washington Redskins and change to the generic team name after the NFL team announced that it would eliminate the name. According to ESPN reports, the Redskins temporarily changed their name to the Washington Football Team, and the generic name will be retained for a longer period of time, effective immediately. Madden 21 general currency only changed its name from Madden Coins to MUT 21 Coins.
This name will be used until the team finds a new name. They hope to have a new logo and brand within a month, which will be unveiled on September 13. The Redskins helmet logo will be replaced by the golden player number. Washington will maintain the current unified color scheme. The name Redskin has been widely criticized, and he seems to be referring to American stigma. But the NFL and team management do not think so. Team owner Daniel Snyder eventually changed his name under pressure from investors and protests against the murder of George Floyd. EA announced that the name will not appear in Madden 21.
Madden 21 was released on August 25, so when players connect to the online service for the first time, deleting the old team’s name and logo will update the game one day. Before the release date, EA will delete all old names as much as possible, but some will be delayed until after the release.
Madden 21 will be available on Xbox One, PS4 and PC on August 25, and the next version will be available on Xbox Series X and PS5. You can learn about the currency usage rules of the game in our pre-order guide in Madden 21 Coins.
