EA Sports Sitting Out Another Year of NBA Simulation Basketball, New Game Slated for 2012

As the 2011 NBA Playoff picture is getting clearer and the Los Angeles Lakers looking for a threepeat World Championship, EA Sports has announced that it will sit out yet another season of NBA video game basketball. The sports giant’s last game was NBA Live 10, which featured Orlando Magic “Superman” Dwight Howard on the cover. Electronic Arts abandoned that franchise name with its 2010 game, NBA ELITE 11, but canceled the title. The next simulation hoops game from EA will be hitting stores in fall 2012.

See what happens when you don't buy games because they don't change year after year? EA is forced to shelf the game to either cancel it, or they rebuild it entirely from the ground up - either option is better than shoveling that crap out year after year (ahem, EA - Just like Madden...)

Um it is not old news. They are not having a new NBA game in Fall 2011 either. That is brand new news. This is the 2nd year in a row with no EA basketball game.

They won't have a new basketball game til Fall 2012. That is 3 full freaking years in between games. It shows EA is dead serious about fixing the franchise, and delivering an amazing game.
