User X-Factors Disappear in Franchise Mode Games

★★★★ Newbie

Product: Madden NFL 20
Platform:Sony Playstation 4
Which console generation do you have? PlayStation 4
What is your gamertag/PSN ID?
Date/time issue occurred 8/14
What type of issue do you have? Gameplay
Which mode has this happened in? Franchise Mode
Which part of the mode? Cloud
Summarize your bug Every time I begin a game in franchise mode my team's X-Factor abilities disappear while my opponent's are still there. For instance I try to begin a game with the Bucs, who have Mike Evans and his Double Me X-Factor. I go into the pre-game menu (where you can view X-Factor abilities, change uniforms, etc.) and the top three players for each team are shown. My opponents have X-Factor abilities as noted by the icon next to their pictures. Mike Evans does not have an icon next to his. I go into the pre-game options to view abilities and it says Mike Evans has one. However, once I go into the actual game it no longer shows Evans as having any X-Factor abilities, just his passive superstar ones. My opponents still have theirs. I created a new franchise with the Patriots just to see if it was the save data and the same thing happened.
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Go into franchise mode and begin a game where the user has X-Factor players. Once in the game you will see that your players have had their X-Factors removed.
What happens when the bug occurs? X-Factor abilities for user players disappear in franchise mode games.
What do you expect to see? A patch or update fixing the issue.

I'm having the same issue in Franchise mode. It is very frustrating to not be able to activate or utilize your X factor player like you should be able to. The X factor literally disappears everytime you start a game. I used the Green Bay packers and the only X factor on the team is Aaron Rodgers and everytime you start a game he gets demoted to have only superstar abilities. This needs to be addressed.

Still having this issue even after several weeks. In both franchise and exhibition. Can’t utilize super star X factor abilities in game. Even tried reinstalling the game and it did not work. Ridiculous this isn’t addressed yet.
