EA Sports has announced the cancellation of NBA Live 13.
In an update on the game's website, developers stated: "When we started the process of bringing back NBA LIVE, we knew it was going to be a long journey. We started by moving the game to a new studio. We brought in some of the best new technology that has helped fuel innovation in our other games. But 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."
If this sounds familiar, that's because EA's previous basketball game attempt NBA Elite 11 back in 2010 suffered the same fate.
"This wasn't an easy decision, but it's the right one for our fans. I hope you'll agree when you're able to play the game next year," said Andrew Wilson, Executive Vice President at EA Sports.
