EA SPORTS Football GM Talks of Three Year Plan for Madden

Here is another great read from


Following the colossal failure of NBA Elite last fall EA Sports dismissed the General Manager of their EA Canada studio and repositioned the General Manager of their Tiburon studio (Philip Holt, who is believed to be founding the social gaming company luring Tiburon developers ). The restructuring was done to put more focus on individual franchises by creating a GM position for each particular title or sport rather than a single one on the studio level.  Speaking at the press event being held by the company, Tiburon football GM Cam Weber touched on the vision going forward for the Madden NFL franchise

This may be a good thing, but as Pasta has pointed out this has been tried before and not implemented well.  I really like the idea of each title getting their own General Manager.  I’ve always thought that certain positions were too spread out and it made it hard for that person to focus on one thing, especially when games were overlapping or close in the developing cycle.

What this means for Madden 12?  More than likely it doesn’t mean anything this year.  For future releases this 3 year planning can benefit them as they can lay down the ground work for future releases, but on the flip side this could produce a lot of tunnel vision.

What are your thoughts on this 3 year plan?
