EA to ensure next NBA Live meets 'mutual standards of excellence'


Following the news that NBA Live 13 had been cancelled, the NBA have announced that it will "continue to work together with [EA] as we always have".

VP of Marketing Communications for the NBA, John Acunto told Joystiq that the NBA has "had a great relationship with EA for more than 20 years. We are obviously disappointed that EA will not be releasing NBA LIVE 13 this year, but have been assured by EA that the next release of NBA LIVE will meet our mutual standards of excellence."

So while this year's installment has been cancelled, we can look forward to a bigger and better game next year. With both EA's NBA Live and Take-Two's NBA 2K series' it's a great time to be a basketball fan.
