NBA Live 13 canceled, EA Sports aims for Live 14

Once again, EA Sports has decided not to release NBA Live. The game was supposed to be EA Sports' first basketball sim since 2009, but it appears the game is still not up to EA's standards.

"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. We launched an even deeper level of engagement with our community to gather more feedback directly from fans. And we built a whole new development team to bring it all to life. We felt like we were on the right path," EA Sports EVP Andrew Wilson explained.

Good news, ball-bouncing fans! EA has released the first in-game trailer for NBA Live 13! Oh, and revealed that the long-overdue revival of the series will take a little longer, as it's delayed. That's a bit of bad news, I suppose. Sorry I didn't prepare you adequately.

NBA Live 13's new Playmaker engine detailed

After a lengthy hiatus, EA Sports' NBA Live series is finally coming back. While the game wasn't playable at E3, the publisher did showcase the game in a behind-closed-doors presentation that intended to show off how EA Tiburon plans on making their NBA franchise competitive. Key to NBA Live 13 is the game's new Playmaker engine.

Playmaker borrows various aspects of EA Sports' other franchises, such as the NHL and FIFA series. "With the Playmaker engine, the NBA Live development team leveraged the EA proprietary ANT Technology, which has been successfully used across EA Sports titles, notably FIFA and NHL, and combined that with our new Basketball IQ – AI system," executive producer Nick Wlodyka told us. FIFA and NHL players (and even Battlefield 3 players) will recognize ANT as the animation technology that powers the backbone to those games.
