As the NFL season is just on the horizon, the incoming Madden 22 game is generating hype around as to which player will be next on the cover.
Who Will Be on the Madden 22 Cover?
There are currently no news as to when Madden 22 will be released at the time of writing this story, and with that, the star athlete on the cover of the game has also not been leaked to the public yet.
Although there is no news as to who will be on the Madden 22 cover, there has been speculation around that through a video on TikTok, Gamestop may have leaked that running back for the Tennesee Titans, Derrick Henry, maybe the one on the cover. This would be in good taste for the game as Henry adorns the number 22 on his jersey as well.
The video shows the user, jordanr03, going to a local mall to visit a Gamestop, in which the pre-order advertisement in the store shows Derrick Henry as the only athlete in the image of the ad.
Perhaps rightfully so as Derrick Henry had an insane year, rushing over 2000 yards in the regular season, which helped carry the Titans to the AFC Wild Card round, where it fell to the Ravens, 20-13.
This wouldn't be the first time that the Madden franchise has had their cover athlete leaked to the public as Baltimore Ravens quarterback, Lamar Jackson - who featured on the game last year - revealed through Twitter that he would be on the cover before the game's release months later.
Though Derrick Henry could be this year's athlete on the cover, the community is still speculating as to who will be the one to be featured. Some of the athletes that are the most discussed are regular-season MVP, Aaron Rodgers of the Green Bay Packers, and Super Bowl MVP and champion, Tom Brady of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers among others.
Though the news may ensue fans of the game to assume that Derrick Henry may be on the cover for this year's game, in an interview with Bloomberg, CEO for Electronic Arts Andrew Wilson has said that the reveal will be released "soon enough" as he is reviewing the pick before releasing to the public. He added that this year's iteration of Madden will have "something a little different with the cover this year," and that he won't reveal anymore than that.
