With Madden 23 still less than a month out since its worldwide launch, it wouldn't be all that surprising to hear that its servers are down considering these types of ordeals tend to happen for just about all types of new popular games.

Here's a breakdown of how to check, and what to do if the Madden 23 Ultimate Team servers are down.

Madden 23 Servers Down: How to Check

There are two reliable ways to figure out if your connectivity problems with Madden 23 are related to your own internet, or instead because of server troubles on 2K's side.

The first is to check the server status hosted by EA Sports.

Unfortunately, it does not appear that EA has an official server status website for its Madden games, so players should instead head to the general Downdetector page for Madden, which aggregates connectivity complaints. Enough complaints in one region or time period often indicate problems occurring on the server side.

The other way to check whether or not the Madden 23 servers are down for everybody is by checking social media.

The official @MaddenNFLDirect Twitter account is a surefire bet to post any updates on server outages and maintenance sessions for the title.

On Aug. 29, the @MaddenNFLDirect Twitter demonstrated two examples of server outages for Madden 23, with one being a developer-activated gate and the other being scheduled server maintenance.

Fortunately, with the latter, server maintenance for Madden titles typically takes place at times when traffic on the game is at its lowest in the U.S.


Madden NFL 23 is available now on PlayStation 4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and Windows PC (via EA app, Origin, Steam, and Epic Games Store).
