Madden Video Game Will Come Out Whether Or Not There's An NFL Season

Regardless of whether or not NFL owners and players can make nice in time for there to be a football season, all will proceed as normal in video game world.

Kotaku reports Electronic Arts is committed to releasing Madden NFL 12. The publisher’s deal apparently allows the use of player likenesses despite the recent decertification of the players union, and a potential lockout by the league would not prevent the publisher from using team logos and stadiums.

If there is no NFL season, would a video game fill the void for you or make the lack of real football all the more painful?
