UPCOMING EVENTS

Mike Tirico, Greg Olsen, Kate Scott and Brock Huard Added as Voices to Madden NFL 25

Video game and football fans are counting down the days until the August 16 release of the new Madden 25 video game from EA. The date, along with the news that San Francisco 49ers running back Christian McCaffrey would don the cover was released last week. Today, the EA Sports team posted a blog with several pieces of new information about the game. Included in that was news that Mike Tirico, Greg Olsen, Kate Scott and Brock Huard will be new voices heard on the game.

Those names will join incumbents Brandon Gaudin and Charles Davis and form two additional broadcast teams. Tirico and Olsen, the former NFL TE who now works for FOX Sports and recently took home the Sports Emmy Award for top Event Analyst, will be one team. Scott and Huard will make up the other team. Scott is the current television play-by-play voice of the Philadelphia 76ers who has called preseason NFL games and was also part of Learfield’s College Football Saturday Night . In 2016, she made history, becoming the first woman to call an NFL game on radio and the first woman to call a football game on the Pac-12 Network.

The EA team said, “These new teams are here to refresh your Madden NFL experience and bring it to life with over 42,000 fresh recordings at launch, with multiple in-season updates to keep it fresh.”

The makers of Madden 25 say they have upgraded the look, feel and sound of the game. They explain it by saying, “Dive deeper than ever into the NFL game day experience with an immersive feature set that brings players closer to NFL action than ever before across game modes; from realistic Franchise changes to two brand new commentary crews, you’ll feel so close to the gridiron you can almost smell the all-new 3D turf.” 

EA also said it has added crowd audio from the 2023 NFL season’s Monday Night Football games and NFL Films, “so it doesn’t just feel like realistic crowd noise–it is real crowd noise.” They said the on-field sound effects have been increased and refreshed and now include over 500 samples.
