The next-gen versions of Madden NFL 21 and FIFA 21 will skip the launch dates for PS5 and Xbox Series X / S and arrive on both platforms on December 4th, EA announced today. PS4 and Xbox One owners who buy either or both games will get a digital next-gen copy for free.
As EA mentions on its website, those who purchased a physical copy of either game will have to go through an EA website to redeem their upgrade. The free next-gen upgrade promotion for both games will expire once Madden NFL 22 and FIFA 22 release, presumably sometime in late 2021. Initially, EA told players back in May they had until December 31st, 2020 to claim their free upgrades for both titles until consumer outcry led them to extend the offer.
