Madden returns to the cover of the Madden NFL for the first time in 22 years

The Madden NFL series is named after famed NFL coach and commentator John Madden.
The nuance is that Madden himself has never appeared on the covers of the series since 2000.
In December 2021, John Madden passed away, so Electronic Arts decided to honor his coach in Madden NFL 23.
Developers came up with three cover options, each one commemorating an event in John Madden's life: A picture from the 1977 Super Bowl, when coach Madden led the Oakland Raiders to victory.
Madden as an analyst - he parsed games during broadcasts late in his professional career.Cover photo of the very first video game with Madden, John Madden Football in 1988.
Back then, the game was released on the Apple II, MS-DOS and Commodore 64, and Bethesda Softworks was involved in development.
Even back then the sports sim was distributed by Electronic Arts.
As you can see, the publisher has a particularly close relationship with Madden NFL - they lasted even longer than with FIFA! The last time John Madden looked at the cover was in 1999, in Madden NFL 2000.
After that, the \"face\" of the new parts of the series became the actual athletes, which even gave birth to a superstition - \"the curse of Madden.
