Jon Robinson of ESPN.com had the chance to sit down with madden 12 director Ian Cummings to discuss some news features and news surrounding madden 12. Cummings commented on the addition of suprise onside kicks and how they will be implemented in next year’s madden in his annual superbowl halftime blog.
“Jon Robinson: Of all the new features you guys are kicking around, why did you announce surprise onside kicks as the first thing gamers can expect for “Madden NFL 12″?
Ian Cummings: We discussed for quite a long time what we would lead with. There was a lot of debate, but I really wanted to lead with this because of the discussion it would cause. It’s not a huge feature. It’s not something that took a ton of time. But it’s something that’s been a hot-button issue in the community. Some people have made a really big deal over us not having this in the game, and it’s something we always wanted to do, we just needed to balance it right. So we figured we’d lead with it and we’ll get people talking about how it will be an exploit, or on the flip side, how it needs to be in the game. But we knew it was something that would get people talking about “Madden 12.” If we lead with something huge, then it’s tough to continue that momentum. So we decided to lead with something controversial to get people talking about the game.”
