EA Sports has announced that former New England Patriots Tight End and murder suspect Aaron Hernandez has been removed from Madden 25 and NCAA Football 14.
An EA Sports Rep had the following to say about the move to remove the former Patriots player.
“We made a decision to remove Aaron Hernandez from Madden NFL 25 andNCAA Football 14 Ultimate Team. Because NCAA Football 14 was finalized prior to our decision, Hernandez’ image still appears in the Nike Skills Trainer.
However, he is not in the game, and anyone who unlocks that particular Nike Skills Trainer reward will receive an Alex Smith Ultimate Team player item instead. The image of Hernandez will be removed via a Title Update in the near future.”
The statement was made because images leaked on Twitter of an Aaron Hernandez card unlocked in NCAA Ultimate Team. Madden 25 hits stores August 27th and NCAA Football 14 hits stores tomorrow for all major consoles.
