After years of resistance, Washington’s National Football League team announced earlier this week that its name will be changed to something that isn’t a racial slur. A new name hasn’t been settled on, though, which leaves the next iteration of the Madden series in an awkward limbo. EA announced it will make the team “generic” in the upcoming Madden NFL 21, until the new name and logo are decided.

“We are pleased to see Washington’s decision to change their team name and visual identity,” an EA rep told USgamer. “We are quickly working to update Madden NFL 21 to feature a generic Washington team, while we await final word on the updated team name and logo design.”
