The new game cover for Madden NFL 21 was revealed this week and the new cover was unlike any that we have seen in the past and now EA Sport has now explained why they decided to offer the new cover.
Since these covers start with an in-person photoshoot of the athlete on the cover, that is not possible this year with everything going on which is why EA Sport choose to contact Baltimore Ravens and asked for some images of Lamar Jackson from the team photographer Shawn Hubbard.
Images from AP were also used in the cover with a total of five pictures of Jackson being shown on the covers this time. Those that opt for the Deluxe and MVP edition of the game will get the cover version with additional photos on it.
Madden NFL 21 will be released on the 28th of August on PC, Xbox One and PS4.
