Most probably saw the unfortunate handwriting on the wall, and now it's official.
A disappointed b-ball fan pointed out what has already become public knowledge: As revealed at the game's official website , NBA Live 13 won't be coming. It seems the game just wasn't going to be ready for its intended October launch, and EA has a reputation to uphold.
EA Sports executive vice president Andrew Wilson says the team will "sit out the full year" and try to make the next effort better. Said Wilson:
"Making great games is not easy. And we're just not there yet on NBA Live 13. 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."
Live hasn't been around for a few years, while 2K's popular NBA 2K series has done rather well. Still, EA is hoping to resurrect their basketball franchise for the next NBA season and ideally, it will satisfy the die-hard fans. Sports fanatics can be demanding!
