Madden 22 was released with a lot of bugs and glitches. It has to be one of the worst releases in the past few years in the Madden NFL series. The unfortunate situation is the bugs existed during the early access and have continued nearly three weeks into the game. One of the two most daunting issues with the game has been resolved or eased partially. The desync bug in franchise mode has had an update a few days back. But, the Madden 22 Face of the Franchise slow-motion glitch and hundreds of others continue to haunt players. Stick with this post and we will detail you about the bugs and any possible workaround.

I have been gaming for as long as I can remember starting with Dr. Mario and Doom. On QM Games, I am the Admin, Developer, Tech Guy, and occasionally a Writer. I handle everything that makes the website run in its current state. I am also one of the founders of the website.
  • When I play franchise mode on my ps5 my controller turns inactive. It goes into the computer playing man to man on defense every play and I have no control over the person I am on. On offense it’s goes cpu as well the cpu controls my quarterback for about 5 seconds before I can make any movement. I know it’s sounds weird but has this happen to somebody else before ? Or can anyone tell me the cause of this glitch please ..

  • When playing franchise mode and I want to use offence only mode, leaving the defence to the computer, there is never any interceptions for the defence

  • In cloud franchise CPU punt returner doesn’t signal fair catch by waving arm but when you tackle it’s a penalty for hitting the returner.

  • I can’t play in my online franchise for more than about 20 minutes before I get disconnected from the EA servers. Very frustrating

  • For certain teams when I try to kick or punt the kicking meter freezes for about 5 seconds. I met it unfreezes and then the ball gets kicked it goes either directly to the right or left.

  • Glitch #106 – On PC upon any hit stick tackle that makes contact the game may freeze for 3-5 seconds. I can confirm this to be true to others as I’ve asked other people and it affects them too. Not only that but this glitch wasn’t even in the game when it was released. They added a game-breaking glitch into the game after I bought it and still haven’t fixed it.

  • #43“Momentum Stealer” and “Under Control” Achievements/Trophies are bugged and cannot be unlocked.

    Please Fix
    Thanks for your time and hard work.

    • Hi Sorry, there is no known workaround or fix at the time. There is also no acknowledgment from the devs that we know of.
