As sure as the sun rises and sets, so too will a Madden game be released in August.

According to an update to the Madden NFL website, noticed by Polygon, EA Sports has dated Madden 14 for release on August 27, and the firm will also be celebrating the franchise’s 25th anniversary.

However, the game may not be known as Madden 14, as it’s listed as “Madden 25” on the site, which would totally mess up any form of numerical order the series has had since 2005’s Madden 6.

Look for EA to possibly announce the game during or close to the Super Bowl on Feburary 3.
