Madden NFL 2002 for the PC was the latest installment of the NFL football game created by Tiburon. Published by Electronic Arts under their EA SPORTS label and released in August 2001. The plan for Madden 2002 PC was to take the PC 2001 front-end and graphics engine and combine it with the PS2 2001 AI & animation engine. My duties were to merge the online capabilities of the PC version and make it work with the PS2 game engine. I was also responsible for making the PC 2001 front-end and franchise data transition into the PS2 in-game code.
