NBA Live is similar to Avatar Aang. They disappeared when the world needed them most. NBA 2K20 is out here stinking up the place and once again basketball fans are left with no alternative basketball game to play. Many of use held on to hope thinking they’d delayed Live 20 until the season, but the NBA season has begun and still nothing. Today we know why. NBA Live has been canceled according to our informant. The good news is not all hope is lost. They’ve decided to take an L this year to focus on next-gen consoles.
“We’re not launching a new NBA Live HD product this season. Instead, we’re expanding our vision, leaning hard into the new leading-edge platforms, and taking the time to ensure we deliver against the opportunity for our players.
“We’re excited by what we’ve built so far, and yet we know the world is changing. New platforms are coming that will bring social connection, accessibility and player creativity to the forefront. In a future of new possibilities, players shouldn’t be content with a game built for today’s realities and based on what we know to be possible, we feel we can go so much further with the new design.”
When NBA Live 21 drops for PS5 & the new Xbox this could go either two ways. People will either love the new changes to series or it won’t be enough and EA will be clowned even harder for taking a year off to produce a subpar game. I pray they get it together because 2K needs competition!
