Madden 21 stuck on 'Showtime' in the loading screen has been cropping up for players in recent days.

Madden 21 released in late August as usual, but has been subject to heavy criticism from the jump. Players have taken issue with EA seemingly doing the bare minimum of updating the rosters and pumping out the same old product of the last few years.

In addition to the glitches, bugs and crashes that have already been noted, a new error is giving players grief. During the initial start-up process, players are experiencing a freeze after the loading screen says Showtime.

Madden 21 Stuck on Showtime: How to Fix

As of writing there is no confirmed fix for the problem, as it's only a few days old. The best advice would be a standard fundamental reset. Players can reset multiple facets of their setup to try to circumvent the issue:

  • Restart the game (Madden 21)
  • Disconnect, and reconnect your internet to your console
  • Restart your internet router
  • Restart your console

As with any EA issue, keep tabs on their community board as common errors will be posted there. Many times an official EA Community Manager will make note that the problem has been acknowledged by the game developers and a fix is underway.
