Madden 22 Update 1.016

EA has pushed out Madden 22 update 1.016 on both last-gen and next-gen platforms. Given this is an unannounced title update, don’t expect anything major from it. Check out what’s new in the Madden 22 next-gen update patch notes.

Madden 22 Update 1.016 Patch Notes | Madden 22 PS5, Xbox Series X|S Update Patch Notes:

So far, EA has yet to issue any official announcements regarding today’s title update. Given that Madden 23 is on the way, and is EA’s focus right now, don’t expect anything major from today’s patch.

On the PS4’s update history, it mentions that the latest Madden 22 patch brings:

  • Stability and Quality improvements

Mind, this is the same term EA uses for every Madden 22 patch, so this is not reflective of what actually got changed.

Over on the EA Answers Madden 22 bug report page, one bug that’s confirmed being looked into by the devs is a Madden Ultiamte Team Rookie Premiere Tokens issue. Here’s the report from a user from a month ago, and an EA rep’s response:

And here’s EA’s repsonse from last week regarding the issue:

Another bug report is the Madden 23 pre-order link in Madden 22’s main menu not showing up properly. Based on Madden players, this bug is happening to Xbox and PlayStation platforms.

Here are two reports from two different users via the EA Answers forums:

For Xbox:

The Pre-order link for Madden 23 that grants a 10% discount is simply not there for me (nor has it been since it came out) all it says in the panel where it supposed to be is “Positive Play”. The Madden 23 pre-order link that is on the main menu for everyone else simply does not show up for my account for whatever reason.

The Pre-order link for Madden 23 that grants a 10% discount is simply not there for me (nor has it been since it came out) all it says in the panel where it supposed to be is “X-factor database” with a link to the X-factor database. Ive tried both the PS4 and PS5 versions of the game on each console respectively  (and the PS4 version on both consoles) and the Madden 23 pre-order link that is on the main menu for everyone else simply does not show up for my account for whatever reason.

Hopefully, this bug is fixed since I gather, NFL video game fans would want that extra 10% savings. If you spot any gameplay or technical fixes in the patch, leave a comment below and let us know.
