I dont care (http://www.ign.com/articles/2012/09/27/nba-live-13-canceled)



EA has canceled NBA Live 13. In a statement posted on the game’s official site, EA Sports executive vice president Andrew Wilson wrote “After a lot of consideration, we have made the decision to not launch NBA Live 13” and offered “a bit of perspective” about why.


One of our few looks at NBA Live 13.

According to Wilson, the team “knew it was going to be a long journey” when they set out to revive NBA Live, and began development in a new studio with “some of the best new technology” in order to make it happen. “But making great games is not easy,” Wilson wrote, “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.”

You may remember NBA Live as EA’s basketball franchise that was last released as NBA Live 10. The franchise was later renamed NBA Elite, but NBA Elite 11 was later delayed indefinitely and EA ultimately canceled it. At this year’s E3, EA announced that NBA Live would be back, showing off NBA Live 13 with a new graphics engine and signature styles for each player. Unfortunately, the game seems to have been unable to progress past that point, leading to today’s announcement.


Wilson added that the decision “puts us on the right track for success well into the future,” and that he’s “disappointed” the game hasn’t been able to meet its high expectations. “But I remain motivated about where we're going. We're committed to delivering new innovation in online, and our progress in the visual presentation of the game continues to take big strides. We also know that a great game starts with great gameplay, and this remains a huge priority for us.”

“This wasn't an easy decision, but it's the right one for our fans,” Wilson concluded. “I hope you'll agree when you're able to play the game next year.”

I had high hopes in Live 13, but since 2k13 is looking like a big improvement over 2k12, I'm not too disappointed. Just embarassing for a company like EA to cancel the same game twice :D

RIP EA Basketball

I used to play NBA Live all the time back in 01-05. But when Xbox 360 came out, 2K has clearly been the better franchise. The player movements/gameplay is just so much better in 2k. Live has slightly better graphics but the players move so awkwardly and the animations are laughable.

Anyone who still likes NBA Live is in denial.

Especially when the developers cancel the game AGAIN because they realize it can't hold a candle to 2k.

Live up until about NBA Live 2005, or NBA Live 06 was great, but from there it just went downhill..

Unfortunately I wouldn't be able to play neither, as my laptop isn't good enough and I don't have a console. So.. whatevs.

NBA 2k, FIFA, and The Show are by far the best sports franchises. All other competitors should just stop making competing games.

Can you imagine if 2K were allowed to make 2K football again! :speechless:

Madden would go the way of live. Hell, NFL 2K5 is still much better than all the Madden games.

Are you crazy? That would create a monoplay on a franchise sports game. No one wants that.

No they need competition, just look at how **** 2k12 was when it had no completion compared to 2k10.

Initially NBA Live was better than 2K, but things just went wrong for Live in 2007 thats when I made the 2K switch. Never looked back.

We have a video game forum.

Why is this so hard to comprehend?
