We got an Xbox One for Christmas and I’ve been playing a fair amount of Madden 25 with our boys. One of our favorite things to do is to set up franchises in offline career mode and create our own teams via the fantasy draft.
That’s all well and good, but we’ve discovered an apparent bug where it very frequently fails to save our progress when we complete a game.
In short, after the game ends, we review our stats and then click to exit. But instead of taking us back to the franchise menu where we should be able to save our progress, it dumps us out to the main menu.
And no, the auto-save feature doesn’t seem to help. In my experience, it seems to create an auto-save before the game which doesn’t do us any good. We still have to replay the game.
I’ve contacted EA about this via their online chat and they were of very little help. The rep pretty much said that I should post about it in their support forums and hopefully there will be a patch.
All in all, this has been a very frustrating and disappointing experience. Madden 25 is an otherwise really fun game, but these sorts of glitches steal the joy.
I’ve searched the web a bit and have seen other reports of this behavior so I know we’re not alone. But, unfortunately, I haven’t run across any solutions.
