A few days ago the terrible death of George Floyd took place at the hands of a Minneapolis, Minnesota, police. This event, caused by police brutality and racism, shocked the entire country, unleashing a large number of protests that are currently sweeping the streets of the United States. In solidarity with this cause, Electronic Arts will delay the announcement of Madden NFL 21.
This was announced by the company through a publication on its Twitter account. “We were planning to celebrate Madden NFL with you tomorrow, but we won’t do that,” they begin, saying. ” We support our African-American / Black community of friends, players, partners, and partners. Our immediate attention is on the actions we can take to channel change against unfair treatment and systematic prejudice that plague the nation and the world.”
EA joins in a great solidarity act of protest channeling attention to a serious problem that increasingly plagues the black community, reaching extremes such as the one we have seen in the George Floyd case. “We will find another time to talk about football with you, because this is bigger than a game, bigger than sports, and it needs that we all support each other to bring about change,” they conclude.
Madden NFL 21 was scheduled to perform today. Due to the terrible events that plague the world these days, we will have to wait a little longer for EA to officially announce its exclusive NFL simulator. For now, we can enjoy the teaser on Xbox X Series.
