PC Release Rumours (Update: PS4 & X1 Only)

Talk about NBA Live 18 here.

PC Release Rumours (Update: PS4 & X1 Only)

Postby Andrew on Wed Jun 07, 2017 5:38 pm

Interesting rumours are making the rounds about a PC release, based on a listing over at Game Informer that mentions the PC among the platforms for both NBA Live 18 and Madden 18.

Image

Personally, it's something that I have trouble believing until we hear it from EA directly - it wouldn't be the first time we've seen an erroneous listing regarding a PC release - but it's worth keeping an eye on. Worth stirring up interest in at any rate, to demonstrate our desire for a PC version.

Honestly I think PC gaming in general has been making a bit of a comeback, especially with Steam in the forefront making it simple for everyone involved

Good point. I'd certainly like it to be true, though I'm certainly taking the rumours with a grain of salt for now.

I'd like to believe it, but a few people have already claimed it to be false. I guess this happens yearly with Madden.

It's still there in the listing (as of this post), but yeah, strictly a rumour and likely a copy and paste error until we hear otherwise.

If this is true then this is great news. Just having an alternative to 2K on PC will be huge for me, and if we can figure out how to mod the game that would be even better.

One can only hope I guess.

The likelihood is it's a mistake, happens every year with Madden from what people are saying over at OS. If it was true, it's a bit weird that they're releasing two games to basically a new platform and haven't mentioned anything about it yet.

Unless they're going to be making a big deal about it at E3, however with the recent leaks of the WNBA and "The ONE".... I doubt it.

I'm inclined to think so too, but ultimately decided it was worth reporting as a rumour making the rounds...if only to get the ball rolling on the conversation and hopefully demonstrate that the interest in a PC release is still there. I'd love to see it happen again.

Well many rumors these days are true,

SO LONG OLD PC!

At the very least, if it is just a typo, then it might be time for another PC petition.

The official website is only listing PS4 and X1, so looks like it was indeed Game Informer's error. A shame, but like I said, it may be time to get another petition going.

Too bad though. I'd really prefer a PC version. When given a choice between PS4 or PC, I'll buy the PC version of games every time.

Well, the bottom line is supporting the product and demonstrating a keen interest in a PC version. Petitions, articles, and so on. If the brand can reestablish itself with the larger console demographic, then the chances get a lot better.

Please set something up. Maybe they'll use WWE 2K's approach and release a PC version months after the console versions were there. Same thing happened with the first Injustice game. So where do I sign?

People are stating on different articles and forums that the official NBA Live 18 website has the XBOX One and PS4 listed for demos, there hasn't been an official platform announcement. No demo doesn't mean no game - take the Pro Evolution Soccer franchise for example. They still hope the PC gets in there. A bit optimistic in my opinion but it's better than ditching the idea altogether.

I think we can take it as read that there isn't going to a PC version right now, but that doesn't mean we can't continue to push for one.

Holy Shit. Can read some german, but I am not very good at it. Also I am on safari right now and I can't use google translate. What's up with that 29th of December date? I see they also have it for the XBOX One and PS4 versions.

Postby haaaaanis on Tue Jun 20, 2017 8:42 am

December the 29th is the end of the Q4 2017. NBA Live 18 is supposed to be released in the Q4 and because they don't have a release date by now they probably took the last day of Q4 of 2017.
The site states that there will be further details and announcements in near future.
You can switch the language to english at the top of the site.
What gives me confidence is that Amazon Media EU is listed as the seller and it also lists the PC version together with the XBOX One and the PS4. I do not think that this is a guarantee but we can assume that there is a humble possibility to have a PC version of the game.

If its not for PC, theres not much to talk about with NBA Live as far as im concerned. I can't imagine going back to console after years on PC.

The game has shown a lot of promise and improvement according to everyone who has played it thus far, which is encouraging for its future; that's definitely worth talking about. The more successful the game is, the more likely it is to be ported to other platforms, specifically PC. The success of the brand, support of the game, and active interest in a PC version is all going to help in seeing a return to the PC, so that what I'm hoping and aiming for.

I hope you're right Andrew. That definitely wasn't the case for the Madden PC series :roll: I don't understand this almost hatred for the PC platform from EA when it comes to football and basketball. I don't think we ever really got a straight answer from them as to why they refuse to put these games back on PC.

It's the size of the userbase, basically. It's easy to forget because we've traditionally been focused on the PC version in this community, but PC users have always made up a much smaller percentage of the userbase compared to consoles.

May be a smaller pct, but it is a user base being ignored. You're trying to grow the market for your game but your leaving out certain groups of people.

I agree.

It's almost like leaving out a key feature, like roster editing. A good portion of the user base has been requesting that feature, wanting that feature, stating they won't buy the game without that feature... but it seems they won't have it again. Which, leaves out a lot of people who will now not purchase the game because it's missing a key, yet basic feature.

All of these things add up.

Hey, I'm all for NBA Live returning to PC (and roster editing in all versions, too); I'd hope everyone knows that by now. I do understand prioritising the consoles though, since that's where most of the user base is. Doesn't mean that I won't keep bringing it up with the people I know at EA and expressing my desire for a PC version in conversations here, but I also acknowledge the reality of the situation.

EA was always scared about piracy and their low PC sellings. That subject is as old as the ancient Egypt. They have managed to make their games uncrackable (there are still some offline bypass methods but EA is all about online games), the FIFA PC community is HUGE and is quickly growing bigger. I think it's just a matter of time until games like Madden, NBA Live or NHL come to the PC. My heart wants those ports to be here asap, in a later release this Spring, my brain tells me it will probably happen a bit later than we hope, maybe around the next-gen releases and the introduction of the PS5

It boggles my mind honestly. They have FIFA on PC and had it on here ever since 1996. The sales are very nice and the game is well regarded. So why not put the other two major sports on PC? The Superbowl is watched by 2 billion people or so every year. So of course you'll have a decent amount of sales, especially since it's the only other major sport to come to the PC besides Football and Basketball. It's the same reason why I never understood the reluctance to get WWE on the PC for like nearly 20 years. It's huge and people will buy it for PC. For EA another major point is that they have Origin so they don't need Steam. That's a major factor in actually making the games viable in terms of profit.

I do hope it's true. First of all because 2k would finally get a competitior. No matter how big the difference at the moment, it's still a competitor and that's always good for gamers. What I have seen so far on Agent00' channel and others also looks like a really nice career mode, they incorporated secondary and in some case even tertiary main attribute categories, they brought back perks so basically they are taking a much for RPG approach to the whole thing and judging from how well the Journey in FIFA 17 was written, acted and played out, I think they could seriously take a crack at having a really engaging story mode.

I soooooo hope at least Live comes to PC. I'd love Madden, but at least give us Live just so I actually have a choice.

We already have confirmation that it's not true (hence the updated topic title), but it's something we're obviously going to keep pushing for.

RPG is ok to a point. As long as we're not forced into names like Prez or Freq. Freq was awful. :x

Let us choose our name.

I would not buy any more sports games where the RPG part of it is a scripted thing. We should be able to decide what path we want to take and have the game react to us, not us having to react to the script. I've had it with scripted junk.

Can't agree more, they should definitely let players decide what they want to do, not forcing them into doing something they don't want to, but must do.

At this point, I just assume Tiburon hates working on the PC. They even stopped putting PGA Tour out on it.

The rest of EA seems happy to do so.

I'm not getting too excited, given the listings on the official website. I'm also pretty sure the game is coming out in September. Still interesting to see, of course, and I'd still love to see it happen.

It's probably based on the same placeholder Game Informer had.
