With the biggest sporting event in the world about to take place on Sunday, EA has announced Madden NFL 14 will arrive on Aug. 27th.

August is the standard month for Madden releases, but there will be something truly special about this year's NFL video game. It's the 25th anniversary of the Madden franchise, and one would expect all the stops to be pulled for this year's iteration of the highly successful football series. There's even a chance the game could actually be titled Madden 25 instead of the standard Madden NFL [insert year here].

EA promised more details would be coming soon (perhaps a teaser trailer on Sunday evening during the Super Bowl). With a big anniversary, the rumored release of new consoles, and a bevvy of fanatical fans eager to dive into another new entry, this could be one memorable year for Madden NFL.
