Madden 22: what was the issue that prompted EA to extend the trial period?

People who tried to play the game on Xbox claim there was a problem with the trial timer. The trial period came with a timer that was supposed to allow players to play the game for 10 hours. The timer was supposed to be on when you played the game and off when the game was not being played. This means that if you played the game for an hour and stopped, the time was expected to stop too.
