[GI] NBA Live benched for another year

EA Sports makes it three straight seasons without a hoops sim, but will "stay focused on making next year's game great"

The resurrection of NBA Live will have to wait another year. In a post on the game's official site, EA Sports executive vice president Andrew Wilson has confirmed that the publisher will not ship NBA Live 13 as previously planned.

"[M]aking great games is not easy, and we're just not there yet on NBA Live 13," Wilson said. "Having continued to look at the game over the past few days, it's clear that we won't be ready in October. And rather than launch midway through the season, we're going to sit out the full year and stay focused on making next year's game great. This decision puts us on the right track for success well into the future in a rapidly changing industry."

There is still NBA 2K. Sports games are one of the biggest selling video games genres. Look at Madden and FIFA.

And NHL?

Maybe a Canadian thing, but almost all my friends who like sports play NHL.

NHL and FIFA for my group. The only NFL game I was really a fan of was 2K5 or whatever the last one was, the gameplay just felt great. Much bigger fan of NHL Ultimate Team over FIFA as well.

I guess they don't see any point in even trying to compete with the monster that is the NBA 2K series.

No one cared about Live 13.

NBA 2K13 absolutely destroys live in every way at the moment.

They said they fixed the online for PC for 2K13.

No more low graphics and 5-10 fps. Should work with your current settings.

I have 2K11, 2K12 and now going to be buying 2K13 on steam.

Also have the MLB 2K11/2K12 for PC.
