The 2019 installment of the longest-running American Football sim is coming out this August 10th from Electronic Arts. Players can get in three days earlier with the special Hall of Fame Edition. It's also worth noting that the release said nothing of a PC or Nintendo Switch edition. This is just for the XBOX One and PS4 versions of the franchise.Terrell Owens is the cover athlete this year, which is pretty rad. At least we know he won't get hurt... because he's retired.

From the press release:

“We’ve worked directly with community members on Madden NFL 19 to make a deeper, more immersive football game that gives players what they want - more choice, more control, and key enhancements to fan-favorite modes,” said Carlos Guerrero, Sr. Producer on Madden NFL 19. “Real Player Motion technology combined with all new franchise-building tools like Positional Archetypes and the return of Custom Draft Classes are features that football fans will find fun and engaging. 
Madden NFL 19 steps up the authentic football experience in so many ways.” In Madden NFL 19 Franchise Mode, players can choose the offensive and defensive schemes that best fit their playstyle as they compete in single player and/or multiplayer seasons. Schemes are also linked to a new intuitive progression system - based on authentic positional archetypes - that give virtual coaches the tools and the big decision to either win now or build their squad for the future. NFL fans will also have a top community-requested feature with the introduction of Custom Draft Class Creator where fans can create their own draft classes featuring players from the past and present for use in Franchise.
