'NBA Live 13' Gets the Axe

Posted Thu Sep 27, 2012 at 12:30 PM PDT by Dick Ward

Basketball fans hoping for a return of the Live franchise will have to wait until next year.

A monopoly in gaming tends to make things a bit stale – competition breeds innovation after all. So whether you're a 2K Sports fan or you trend towards EA, the return of the Live basketball game franchise had plenty of upside to it. Unfortunately, the game is not to be, and was officially cancelled by EA.

"Having continued to look at the game over the past few days, it's clear that we won't be ready in October," says EA VP Andrew Wilson. "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."
