Today has been a great day for release date news, earlier we confirmed that The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D would arrive on June 19, now we can confirm that Madden NFL 12 has been given a release date.
Some were worried that the NFL Lockout would affect the game’s release date, however according to a recent article posted on JoyStiq the lockout will not affect the video game. EA Sports‘ President Peter Moore released this statement: “We’ll be shipping this year, regardless of what the labor issues are, whether they’re resolved or not”.
Moore went on to say that Madden NFL 12 will arrive on August 30th 2011, hopefully a demo will hit Xbox Live and the PlayStation Network before then, however NFL fans will just be happy to hear that the game is still arriving this year.
