Madden 20 Career Clock Explained

Madden 20

Madden 20 is out, and people are crashing offense into defense with reckless abandon as they try to score touchdowns. If you are playing the Franchise Mode, you might have noticed the Career Clock option, and have wondered what exactly it does. In this guide, we run through everything you need to know. 

Madden 20 Career Clock Explained

The Career Clock in Madden 20 is designed to simulate the way a real career can go in the NFL. Age, wear and tear from injuries, and games played eventually call a halt to any real player's football career. It is an extremely demanding sport, with a new crop of players each year who are all hungry to make their name and carve our their careers.

In Franchise Mode, activating Career Clock tries to simulate this effect by having players retire earlier than they would without the Career Clock being active. While it puts a more realistic spin on how time, injury, and the stresses of a football career result in players retiring, it also means you might lose your star players a bit sooner. Now, when precisely a player retires is a mystery, so it adds another level of depth to the game and trying to manage your Franchise across several seasons. 

To turn Career Clock off or on, go to the League Settings menu, and you will find the Career Clock option just before the Clock Management options. It is on by default, so if you want you can turn it off. 

An easy way to look at it is that it adds a little new layer of difficulty to your Franchise Mode. You need to keep an eye out for players who might retire and have suitable replacements lined up for them on the bench.
