That's certainly not a good sign for the return of the NBA franchise to EA.
The folks at EA haven't put out an NBA Live game in quite some time, but this year was to be the triumphant return. Unfortunately, for fans that were looking forward to EA handling some basketball again, the game has been delayed.
Even more unfortunately, the game has been delayed with no set release date. Pushed back releases are bad news in general, but the NBA season starts on October 30th, which means EA has a very limited window to get the most out of game sales.
