NBA Live 13 was the planned 2012 basketball installment in the NBA Live series, developed and published by Electronic Arts (EA).[1] The game was to be a reboot of the series and would be departing from previous entries, with the focus on an "all-new experience that captures on the future of basketball". NBA Live 13 was to be released for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.[2][3] There were reports that the game could have been released digitally.[4] However, on September 27, 2012, EA has confirmed on their official website that the game's launch has been canceled due to the game's "disappointing" development.[5] Whilst the 2013 edition has been canceled, according to EA's vice president Andrew Wilson, he stated that "[they are] going to sit out the full year and stay focused on making next year’s game great."[5]
