- 'MADDEN 17' WILL MAKE ADDITIONS TO ADDRESS KAEPERNICK
Everybody appears to possess an opinion on Colin Kaepernick's decision to sit in the course of the national anthem in protest. Why need to we be surprised if a video game desires in?
A representative for EA Sports, the corporation behind the venerable Madden franchise, said Tuesday that Kaepernick's polarizing stance to not stand for the "Star-Spangled Banner" is going to be addressed in new commentary from Brandon Gaudin and Charles Davis, the voices of Madden NFL 17.
"Kaepernick's selection might be briefly talked about in-game, reflecting our commitment to authenticity in Madden NFL 17," a senior publicist for EA Sports stated (via Gamespot.com). "Overall, our new commentary will mainly center about on-field functionality, also as big news like trades, free of charge agency signings, and injuries."
The addition in the Kaepernick commentary is aspect of a Madden push to raise the verisimilitude of their "game broadcasts." Gaudin and Davis will make typical trips for the studio through the NFL season to record new lines that may then be added into the game.
