I'm having the same problem, too. I emailed EA about it and haven't got a response yet.

Stuck on Loading

★★★★ Newbie
When I try to play a game in Franchise Mode, it just stays on loading. This started happening right after I did the update.

It just started today for me, after I did a update it started. I have had this game from first day it came out. No problems until today.

I was forwarded a long list of things to try to correct the problem. Renewing the licenses. Deleting all Madden files and reloading the game. Unplugging the console. Deleting the cache. I'm probably forgetting a couple things as well. Game will now let use the play now mode, but every time I try to use the franchise mode it freezes while loading. Game is basically unplayable. Very frustrating.
