The headline is pretty self-explanatory, and all relevant details are after the jump, in the form of what we in the business call a “press release.” Before you go clicking, I will add that it’s invite-only, as far as I can tell, but you can still secure a spot by going here. Also, based on the latest issue of ESPN The Magazine (no link, since they’ve hidden it behind the pay wall), Cowboys Stadium is a fitting locale, since the Jerry World will, indeed, appear in the forthcoming version of the Madden franchise. In fact, the game’s developers have been behind the curtain, so to speak, since the blueprint stage, so the Madden version of the stadium will be identical, down to the last beam. Okay, now you can jump.
