NBA Live is heading back to the courts.
Today, EA announced plans to resurrect its famed basketball series
this fall in NBA Live 13.
“We have a new studio and a new development team, and this fall
we’ll launch an all-new experience that captures the future of
basketball with NBA Live 13,” wrote EA. “We’re
looking forward to players giving us their feedback on the game, and
next month we’ll welcome in fans from around the country to join in
on the process of creating NBA LIVE 13 as well .”
NBA Live 13 will see EA going back to its time-honored NBA
simulation franchise after a failed experiment with NBA Elite, and
the well-received NBA JAM. EA has already
had a number of NBA ballers through its Florida-based studio to give
NBA Live 13 a test run, including Cleveland Cavaliers' Kyrie Irving
who outed the game yesterday, tweeting, “In
Orlando for #AllStar
checking out the #FutureOfBasketball
Get to see the new #NBALIVE13!”
Future of basketball, eh? We'll have to see if that predication
pans out this fall. In the meantime, EA promises to spill more details on its
NBA Live 13 Facebook page next week.
