EA Sports’ official NBA Live social media accounts sprang to life as recently as May 17 after being on hiatus since late September 2012. A recent tweet from the NBA Live team’s Twitter account indicates that the game may be part of today’s Xbox presentation, teasing fans with the words “Countdown to tip-off.”
It wouldn’t be far-fetched to believe NBA Live will have a presence at today’s event, given the expectation that both FIFA and EA Sports UFC will be shown, or at least teased in some capacity. NBA Live was also listed among the publisher’s 11 games planned for fiscal 2014, and will be a next-gen title. This comes after NBA Live 13 was canceled in September 2012, two years after NBA Elite 11 was also canceled and the same point at which the NBA Live team’s social media accounts stopped updating. That brings us full-circle, like a basketball.
