Why is there no Madden on PC

I think the short answer is that it is a bro-game and most of their audience is on console.

Or as someone else already kind of mentioned, EA Sports could REALLY make a splash by making a solid College Football game for PC that does not use the real team names, players, stadiums, etc, but make it completely moddable. I can assure you, that game would sell.


That'd hardly be a COLLEGE football game without all of the stadiums, teams, players, coaches.

Everyone knows EA is too greedy and most of the sales of their sports titles come from having the exclusive rights to player likeness and coaches. If it was something like "GENERIC FOOTBALL 2016" hardly anyone would buy it especially on PC where the fanbase for sports titles(especially something like American Football) is much smaller than on consoles.

I've not seen someone say it's because outside of North America, USA in particular, the demand for Madden & NFL games is minuscule (very much a niche in the UK, even less so on the continent; not even going to consider SA/Africa/ME/Asia tbh), and the PC market generally been healthier in Europe than NA.

There's also the fact that the FIFA games actually has competition in the form of PES, which is ironically thanks to the licensees not wanting to share the rights money around, so there are essentially 3 tiers of 'official rights' to be bid on.
