Madden 22 stuck at Week 15 (Play Now Live) issue acknowledged

Madden 22 is the most recent installment in the saga of American football simulator games from Electronic Arts. Since its release, its players have been facing some bugs that need to be fixed.

According to recent reports, for the past few days, Madden 22 players are getting stuck at Week 15 in Play Now Live mode (when starting a franchise with real-life rosters).

Madden 22 stuck at Week 15 in Play Now Live seasons

Many Madden 22 players are in the same situation. Currently, they are unable to finish a Play Now Live season, due to the game getting stuck on Week 15 (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7).

It boggles my mind that a AAA game like madden can’t even update their live matchups. There are 18 weeks in the regulary season and they skip on two of them? Like I get this isn’t a huge part of the game but how hard is it to update live matchups. Its disrespectful as a consumer. Source

Game update and Play Live Now still on week 15

I’m not glitching out right? This is one of the biggest features in the game to me and I’ve been on week 15 since well week 15. I was hoping that the update would push a playoff play live now and it didn’t. What’s the deal???

This glitch has been present in the game for at least two weeks. Also, players reportedly spent the holiday season stuck at Week 15 of the season, waiting for an update with a fix.


In fact, to this day, they remain stuck and cannot progress in the Play Now Live season, since the annoying error is still not resolved.

EA already aware, working on a fix

Currently, the EA team is aware of the reported bug causing Madden 22 players to get stuck in Week 15. They confirm that they are working on a fix. However, there is no estimated time of arrival for it.
