NBA Live to return this year

EA ditches the NBA Elite name

EA has confirmed that their basketball series NBA Live, which has been absent for the last couple of years will be making its return in 2012.

There has not been an NBA title from EA Sports since the fiasco surrounding the cancellation of NBA Elite just before its launch in 2010 allowing the NBA 2K series to grab a healthy foothold with basketball fans.

Given the trouble that NBA Elite experienced EA has decided to drop the name change and revert back to the old NBA Live name for this year.

NBA Elite 13 is due out in the autumn and EA promises to reveal more about the new title very soon.

Thanks Gamasutra.
