Yep I have reported this a few times, with screenshots, with the promise of a reply within 24 hours.

 

That was 2 weeks ago...still nothing. Madden 17 is VERY buggy, and EA has to know this.... *sigh*

Hey guys, give this a try and let me know if it works for you (xbox1). Go into your League Settings and turn off Pre-Existing Injuries, then try to save normally. A guy on another forum posted it as a bug-fix, yet the mods haven't listed it as the Solution. My game was freezing every time i tried to create a new save game, and then i turned off the pre existing injuries, and it finally saved. I will update if it starts failing again. Please let me know if it helps.

This is the guy that deserves credit for this fix.

Same here. Very frustrating. EA, what the heck?

I'm having this issue as well. So frustrating! So many games I've had to replay. This is the worst Madden game I've ever purchased. What's the use if it's going to keep frustrating me? Where's the patch?

Exact same issue, except there is no work-around that's resolving it for me.

 

Game freezes when I try to Manually Load, Save, or Delete any Offline Franchise Mode files, 100% of the time.

 

Waiting a moment (5 seconds, 10 minutes, any amount of time) after highlighting the save-file name, but before pressing the button to save, does not work.

Changing time zone settings on Xbox One S does not resolve it.

Turning off pre-existing injuries (which I already had off) does not resolve it.  Toggling this option to on, or on then off, does not resolve it.

 

The game is unplayable.  Has ANYONE found a work-around, or can EA tell me how to resolve?

If not I'll be requesting a refund for defective product.

I think at this stage you are looking at uninstalling the game, deleting save data and reinstalling. That will not be fun and all your saves will be gone but you should be able to play once the game is reinstalled.

Are you kidding me, that is your fix for this??? "Hey just delete everything....all your franchises then just reload the game. Well you'll lose all your stuff but who cares."

What happens when I do that, start another franchise and this happens again? This IS NOT an acceptable option. [Comment Removed - Admin.]

If your save data is corrupt to the point where all game modes are freezing then there is no other course of action.
