Back in early August, it was reported that Microsoft was planning to remove the big 'Optimized for Xbox Series X' badge from physical covers - seemingly due to poor feedback.

And now, courtesy of an image posted to the Xbox Series X Reddit page, we've had our first in-person look at both the front and back of the cover, which in this case is for the MVP edition of Madden NFL 21.

As you can see, the 'Optimized for Xbox Series X' logo appears to have been removed entirely from the front (of course, it could always be added as a sticker), and there's now only a small mention of it on the back.

Based on the photo, it also looks like Madden NFL 21 will be the first game to receive these cross-generational 'Optimized for Xbox Series X' cases, with the MVP edition officially available on Tuesday followed by the standard edition on Friday, August 28. The game supports Dual Entitlement on Xbox One, allowing you to buy the game now and upgrade to the Xbox Series X version at no extra charge for the next year.
