Madden 22 has been out for nearly a month now and, as expected, fans have been playing out matches and scoring touchdowns left and right (to some mixed reception here and there). And with the usual formula ever-present and given a modernized look, fans have been enjoying all the minute details that add to the realistic nature of it all. As the 2021-22 season of NFL is kicking off tonight, EA will likely be celebrating the occasion with the Week 1 roster update pretty quick here. And according to Twitter user @Equipment_Guru, the head Madden Ratings Adjustor at EA, that will happen sooner than you think. According to them, the Week One roster update for Madden 22 is set to arrive either later tonight (Thursday) or tomorrow!

For those who are new around the world of Madden and Madden 22, the Week One roster update for each game offers a finalized 53-man roster for each and every team, letting players start their franchise with the most accurate lineup to real-life. This is important in a game that’s going for realism and competitive nature, as even minute details can support immersion. These updates tend to come out the day of the kickoff game, and more often than not just a few hours before the beginning of the season. This would be in line with what’s said above, but it’s important to note the wording here. With the potential of it coming tomorrow, it will all depend on what the team at EA can pull off for the rest of the day. For everyone’s sake, let’s hope it’s today.
