Another year of Madden and another year of launch issues. It looks like Madden 24 is off to a rough start already! The “EA Servers are currently down” response has beene experienced by many Madden fans eager to player Madden 24. From servers not working/being available to people not being able to access the game early after paying extra, to not having any of the pre order and deluxe extras!
It seems there is a lot of Madden early adopters having issues with Madden 24. A lot of people are unable to even play the game after downloading the full game, resetting their systems and even deleting the game all together and reinstalling it again.
EA is aware of the issues:
Deluxe Pre-Order Offer Update:
Players who pre-ordered the Madden NFL 24 Deluxe Edition will receive pre-order content on both console generations. (ex. PS4 & PS5)
Our team is aware and currently working to deliver the pre-order content to the other console generation.
