Madden NFL 22 is a Football simulator from EA. The game has often been accused of having much the same content as the previous title, but that stands true for a lot of sports simulators. The new title Madden 22 includes a lot of new things that fans can be excited about. For one, the most popular Franchise mode is bringing some much demanded old features such as Coach Progression, skill and talent tree system, home-field advantage, scouting enhancements, and much more.
While all the new features are great, the response from players is frustration caused by the Madden 22 Franchise Mode Final Score Bug. Users are reporting that they continue to lose matches when the final score comes when in fact they have won the matches.
Resetting everything in the hopes to avoid the glitch does not help, you end up with the same final score. A user on Reddit has reported that he spent several hours settings up the franchise and played Week 1 to secure a win of 47-20, but the final score he got was 20-0. He reset everything and started from scratch to win with 24-17, but the final score was again bugged with a loss of 0-17.
The problem is it’s not just one user, but there are several threads on both Reddit and EA complaining of the same issue with the game.
What’s even more frustrating is the response users are getting when they contacted EA support. A user on Reddit reported that the support said, bugs are expected with a game release. A second response a different user got was to wait for the game to release and see if the bug persists.
There was a new patch for the game about 24 hours back, but that does not seem to have addressed the random botched final score for users. At the time, it appears EA and Madden 22 team is turning a blind eye to the issue. Either because they have more pressing matters or they think that only a small number of users are impacted by the issue.
The game is set to release in the next 24 hours so it remains to be seen if the bug has been fixed or will it continue to haunt players. We will keep an eye on the situation and update the post when something new emerges. Meanwhile, if the bug is resolved for you when the game releases or any time after, let us know in the comments.
Workaround for Madden 22 Franchise Mode Final Score
This post originally didn’t have any workaround because at the time there weren’t any. Over time, there are quite a number of workaround that have appeared claiming to fix the bug. Before you go ahead with the solutions, you should know that most of these don’t work and the real problem is with the game. However, with some luck, we hope they help you as some users have claimed to fix the Madden 22 Franchise bug after trying the fix.
- Go to Customize > Share and Manage Files > Load and Delete Files. Deelete all the fines you see under Profile and Roster. It’s a solution suggest by the EA Support on Twitter.
- If the game is installed and saved on an external hard drive, deleting the save data from the conosle may help with the bug.
- Opt for the Cloud Save instead of local/offline. This may not be possible for players who have progressed far into the game, but if you can afford it, start over and choose the cloud save.
- The real porblem with the game appears to be the desync bug that disconnects the client from the server causing a loss for the players. You can try to reset the router/modem in the hopes of fixing the porblem, but the real issue behind it is probabaly the servers.
So, these are the known solutions at the time. Hopefully, one of them helps you fix the bug, but the real solution has to come from EA. Given how widespread the bug is and that EA has not addressed it yet, the problem appears to be quite deep into the game.
