Didn’t see the addition information message.

in my situation I played my normal week 2 game. After completion. Went directly to week 3’s game.. it took an unusually long time to load the next weeks game. Waited awhile. Nothing. 

Tried it restart the game and wasn’t able to move into week 3. I tried restarting the game. Restarted the system. Even deleted the game from my hard drive and redownloaded. Same situation after letti g the game fully install

1. Nothing specific, advancing week
2. Finished week 1 game playing, simmed week 2, at some point there I could no longer see advance week or many of the normal options. Was only able to see upgrade team and depth chart. Did a restart, after this couldn't even get in the league. Now get the advancing to week 3 screen, can select back, but then is caught up on "cancelling simulation" screen. Attempted advancing week via madden companion app on mobile, but just tells me the week is currently advancing check back later
3. I am the only member in the league, and have been since I started the league.

Thanks for the support!

Hey folks,

 

We recently deployed an update with a fix for this issue and multiple players have confirmed that they are now able to advance weeks in Franchise. Please double check that your game is up to date and try to advance weeks again.

 

Thanks for all of the information you've provided us to get to the bottom of this and for your patience while we worked on this. If you are still running into this problem please update this thread with any information you think may be pertinent. 

 

Roger.
