EA is Working On Basketball Games For Next-Generation Consoles
 

 
Electronic Arts apparently isn't finished with basketball quite yet. While NBA Live went dormant in 2019, Axios reports that the sports giant is working on "next-generation" basketball games that could revive EA's fortunes in the space.

"We've got some next-generation HD basketball projects that we have been talking about and designing and working on," EA Sports general manager Daryl Holt said.

In this instance, "high definition" is shorthand for consoles — meaning the a next-gen platform like the Xbox Series X|S or PS5 rather than a mobile device.


If EA's projects reach fruition, they will be its first foray into the space since NBA Live 19's release in 2018. EA's attempts to produce a successful basketball game have mostly misfired since the attempt to reboot the series as NBA Elite in 2010. This has allowed NBA 2K to effectively monopolize the space over the past decade.

What form EA's basketball projects ultimately take remain a mystery. Asked whether EA has a licensing deal in place with the NBA, Holt said, "Definitely around mobile. And then we're in discussions about what we want to do on the HD front."

EA is currently in the midst of a major expansion of its sports offerings. It recently completed a deal to acquire racing sim developer Codemasters, announcing GRID Legends during last week's EA Play conference. In addition to this acquisition, Holt told Axios that EA is exploring "new business models" and "new geographies" as it tries to double its sports audience from 230 million players to more than 500 million over the next five years.

For now, as with its impending return to college football, it appears to be very early days for EA's attempt to make a new basketball game. Madden NFL and FIFA will once again lead EA's sports games this fall, with NHL to be revealed at a later date. You can check out our recent hands-on preview of FIFA 22 right here.

I like NBA2K, but I'm open to something new as long as they're doing their best to give us a good product.

I guess the competition will actually be good for 2k. Hopefully it’s actual competition and not another half a*sed attempt.

disagree. with the effect streamers can have on the popularity of games .... an upgraded version of live + a week of sponsoring streamers to play it on twitch will have the live equivalent of the Park poppin

I legit don't think yall understand how bad EA is....


2k and Madden's issues are nothing alike







One company has legitimately left posters of the previous year in their game and doesn't even use full body scans. EA is legit just a trash company.

It’s time to post bail on this series. It’s suffered the sins of this company’s idiocy long enough.

Bring. It. Back.

I wish they would go for the Street type joint, but like @ said that would probably be more suited for the mobile market nowadays

We need some competition, but I think they need to let that license go lol

Sadly EA doesn't remember how to take risks and make amazing games that stand out anymore. They're too busy following waves instead of creating them. Hence why we are getting a dead space remake out of nowhere instead of a brand new entry to the series.

nah, incredibly unlikely, there's a whole anti-basketball thing at EA at this point because of how badly they were embarrassed. They convinced themselves that there's no money in basketball or other "urban" video games (including street, f*ght night).

I asked a friend that works for them and they said they're more likely to bring back FIFA street than NBA street. If it's true I'd love to see it.
