EA Sports removes Aaron Hernandez from games
That's unfortunate RT @Adam__OS: WELP RT @LiterallyLowe: Oh. Oh dear #NCAAFootball. http://t.co/qVibGlPBnp — Brandon (@TeamSpeedKills) July 8, 2013In its statement to CBS Sports, EA Sports clarified that Hernandez could not be removed from the initial release of the game, due to the timing of the game’s production, but noted that he would be replaced during a future update. "We made a decision to remove Aaron Hernandez from Madden NFL 25 and NCAA Football 14. Because NCAA Football 14 was finalized prior to our decision, Hernandez' image still appears in the Nike Skills Trainer," the spokesperson said. "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." Fortunately for fans who still — for some reason — want to play as Hernandez, there is a solution. You can always just play Madden NFL 13 instead. Questions? Comments? Send them to firstname.lastname@example.org and we might respond in our weekly mailbag!
