The lights are on
EA Sports said NBA Live will not release in early October as expected, giving basketball rival NBA 2K13 the October 2 date all to itself. The publisher released a new trailer this afternoon highlighting some gameplay. "We’ve been working hard on the game, and so we’re excited to share our first in-game trailer today," EA Sports said.
An EA Sports representative was unable to say whether or not NBA Live 13 is releasing in October as originally planned. "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."
In 2010, EA Sports canceled NBA Elite 11 and decided to take an extra year of development time when the team in Canada shifted to EA Tiburon.

Don't care. Can't wait for 2k13.
I would like to see EA put out the game or shut up.
Bad move EA. At this point, it's time to give up and let 2K handle the basketball duties. I'm still getting 2K13 regardless.
I don't know if they'll ever be able to make up for all the ground they've lost with Live. 2K continues to find ways to innovate despite being the clear number one at this point.
I remember watching a demo of the Heat/Thunder, and the animations looked awful. I'm guessing they're making it a $20 downloadable game to try to get people to look at it as the cheaper alternative, but I'm afraid people will only find themselves getting what they paid for: a crappy alternative to the 2K series.
i really hope since 2k isnt releasing a bball game for PS VITA, that nba live 13 does.that will be great.
They're still making this? LMAO> But see it's to late, even if this is better then 2K, no one would admit it and switch because they've been with 2K for years now.
Pass. If I buy an NBA game this year it's going to be 2K. Looks like Live still needs a lot of dev time. A lot.
Anything EA puts out will be better than 2K13.
So EA should probably just give up on an NBA game right? How many development teams do you hand it off to before you have something that works and is fun? Why announce a basketball game only to never release it?
Well it has to be sometime before January.
this game look suck look how they look naw 2k13 is way better so forget nbalive
