Madden NFL 23 team says "polish is our top priority"

Heidi Nicholas - August 3rd 2022

Senior producer Clint Oldenburg discussed EA's confidence that Madden 23 "is going to be the most polished version of Madden that we've had in a long time."

Speaking to IGN, Oldenburg discussed Madden NFL 23, and how polish is the team's "top priority" with the game.

The Madden NFL 23 team is "striving to reach perfection"

"We are very confident that our game for Madden 23 is going to be the most polished version of Madden that we've had in a long time... What I'm not going to say is it's going to be perfect, but I am going to say that the team is still striving to reach perfection, as hard as that may be to reach," Oldenburg says. "That is what our goal is. Polish is our top priority, and we know that we cannot reach our goals if our players believe that our game is a buggy experience."

It's not a huge surprise to see EA focusing on polishing this game — Madden NFL 22, for instance, launched with two unobtainable achievements along with a host of other issues and game-breaking bugs.
