The NFL recently announced a deal with 2K Sports for new arcade-style NFL games, but EA Sports executive producer Seann Graddy isn’t afraid of the competition. In fact, he believes it’s a good thing that the NFL is cutting deals with other game developers.
EA’s own Madden series remains the exclusive developer of simulation-based NFL games, so when players want that type of experience, Madden is there for them.
“As far as the other products that [the NFL is] working with, I honestly think it’s a good thing for the industry and the market because you’re seeing more players engaging with with the NFL and getting excited about the league, getting excited about players,” he told GameSpot. “And when they want to get the simulation experience, they come to Madden. So I think it’s a good thing.”
