Madden 23 players searched for answers while the game’s servers went down, erasing players’ saved franchise mode for both online and offline files.

For football fans, Madden 23 hasn’t gone as smoothly as they hoped.

Players have experienced numerous glitches and bugs since the annual football sim launched in August 2022, including one that spawned random buildings across the field during gameplay.

Now Madden players are reporting that their entire save files have become corrupted as the EA SPORTS servers continue to experience outages.

User Luxie34 said, “Rest in Peace franchise. For those who have the “temporarily unavailable” message on their franchise, is it a foregone conclusion that we lost that franchise? I’m ten years deep in mine.”

The “Temporarily Unavailable” error continues to restrict players’ access to their franchise files, with no known fix for the issue. Even after players connect to EA’s servers, files continue to be tapped.

Madden players who put a huge amount of time into the franchise mode sounded in the comments section.

One user said, “No kidding, I’ve never seen a game with so many ongoing issues. I won’t buy again until it’s playable.

Another player added, “Incredible that a company that made over $7 billion last year can release dog poop like this.”

One Madden fan said EA has been holding NFL games hostage: “I’m numb right now. Football is my favorite sport, so I’m stuck with the evil empire.”

It’s clear that Madden fans are fed up with EA’s inability to release a stable football sim every year and hope an update can restore their save files to their original form.
