Madden NFL 12 confirmed for August launch

You can't keep a good player down, and Madden NFL 12 is going to launch as planned this year no matter what the actual National Football League is doing. EA Sports president Peter Moore addressed the lockout concerns at a recent event in San Francisco, promising the next installment of the series will launch in August, Joystiq reports.

"We'll be shipping this year, regardless of what the labor issues are, whether they're resolved or not," he said. "Madden 12 will be shipping on August 30, 2011, regardless of what happens with the league itself."
