Just read this story on Gamespot: https://www.gamespot.com/articles/nba-live-20-isnt-happening-but-ea-sports-is-planni/1100-6470986/. Is anyone that shocked to read this? I'd say they flushed a lot of money down the toilet with it, but maybe they decided it was best to go ahead and cut their losses.

On a positive note for me as a golf game fan, this might free up HB Studios to get back to work on their next installment of TGC. Word is that EA Sports sub-contracted HB Studios in order to help them get NBA Live 20 to market.

That's a shame. I thought EA made great strides in the last two years with Live.

Sure, Live wasn't as realistic as NBA 2K. But it was getting in roughly the same area code and was VERY fun to play. Plus it was almost guaranteed to drop early into EA Access. :)

Looks like no new hoop game for me this year. Tried NBA 2K20 over Free Play weekend last weekend, and I just can't get into the 2K series. Player movement remains stuck in the mud, the shooting meter remains a mess, and I don't like how it seems players must complete a pre-ordained chain of animations in certain game situations before executing your chosen action.

Well, that sucks. NBA live was much more fun than the 2K series. But I guess fun runs second to living vicariously through a video game sport these days. Oh well.

I was just reading on PastaPadre's site that it looks like NBA Live 21 has been scrapped
