EA: NBA Elite 11 would have been a bad game
EA has shed some light on their reasons for cancellation the ambitious re-imagining of their NBA franchise NBA Elite 11.
The game was due out at the beginning of October but due to the demo being unplayable they decided to delay and eventually pull the game altogether.
EA Sports' Andy Wilson said in an interview with IGN: "Were proud that we made the choice to not just put something out there that wasnt good. Ultimately, it was just going to be a bad game."
He added: "I think that the goal of reinventing how people play basketball games and giving the gamer infinitely more control over the outcomes that appear on the screen in front of them, was something that just needed to take longer than we had. We knew the goal was aggressive. But at the same time, we believed it was an important enough goal for the gamer, whod been playing basketball games in a very similar way for a very long time."
