EA Sports hasn't released a licensed NBA videogame since 2010, when the disastrous NBA Elite 11 was aborted. The company is planning to release their first basketball game in years, but it seems that fans will have to wait a little longer, as NBA Live 13 has been delayed from its early October launch window.
"Many fans have been anticipating an early October launch, but our plan is to release at a later date. We will share more information in the future," posted EA Sports in a press statement.
Rival basketball game NBA 2K13 is launching on the 2nd October, so perhaps EA Sports didn't want to face direct competition.
