The Madden team put out a fix for this, however it was not possible to address it for existing leagues I'm afraid. We sincerely apologize for the impact it might have had on your league, as a Madden player myself I know when you get in many seasons you're heavily invested into it and this is not the most ideal outcome. All new leagues going forward should not encounter this issue.

Madden 19 franchise-PC Players getting old coach quitting

★★★★ Novice

So I’ve been playing Madden 19 franchise mode just fine and I took about a two week break and went back to it today to try to play a new Raiders franchise on the Cloud.

So the problem starts right away when I go to advance from the divisional round as my resign staff screen shows about 5 resign staff bars under tasks but will not load. Then when you advance week Jon Gruden just disappears and a new coach is in the office. Also if I download a draft class file all of my players automatically age and regress by about 5 years.

Same thing on ps4, how hard is it to make a game that works properly when you have billions of dollars at your disposal? Good lord.

Hey all,

I merged some posts together into this one so we can gather some more information on this. We've seen some reports come our way in other forums as well. Can you provide us some details around this?

 

  • Does this happen when you create a new franchise?
  • Does this happen in both Connected and Offline franchises?
  • Does this happen when you use either pre-season or active rosters?
  • Is your franchise using a custom roster?
  • If possible, does this still happen after reinstalling the game?

This happens when I start a new franchise, I can’t test it with an older franshise as I cannot advance my other one due to friends being involved. 

 

I have only only tested it with cloud based franchises.

 

I have been using active, real life rosters. I have started in weeks 8- divisional and all have resulted in players either advancing in age by multiple years (ie: Rosen becoming 30) in the offseason or players not advancing in age (ie: Mayfield retaining rookie status.) I have been importing Thomas2019 draftclass when prompted. 

 

I am on PS4 for reference.

I am 90% sure that the issues have been fixed, before it only would happen if you created a NEW start today franchise and wouldn't do it for the others. I just tried another one and simmed to offseason with the Bucs on Xbox and the problem did not occur again!
