Madden 17 in-game commentary will be updated periodically during the season to give it a more realistic feel. EA Sports confirmed to Gamespot that Colin Kaepernick’s flag protest will be addressed during the games.
“Kaepernick’s decision will be briefly mentioned in-game, reflecting our commitment to authenticity in Madden NFL 17,” a senior publicist for EA Sports said. “Overall, our new commentary will mainly center around on-field performance, as well as major news like trades, free agency signings, and injuries.
More evidence that “stick to sports” is becoming an outmoded mantra.
