NBA Live 20 Confirmed; Console-Only

Postby Andrew on Thu May 09, 2019 1:33 pm

As reported by The Gaming Tailgate, the latest financial report from EA confirms NBA Live 20, and that it will be a console only release.

Unfortunate, but unsurprising. The series still has to reestablish itself and gain momentum before it expands to other platforms, such as PC and Switch. The fact that Madden 20 and FIFA 20 are going to be PC releases bodes well though, in so much as being an indication that EA isn't abandoning the platform. Maybe some day for NBA Live, but not this year. NBA Live 20 itself has been confirmed however, in case there was any doubt.

It's a catch 22. if you don't buy NBA Live 20, if you don't buy the console games, they'll never make a PC version

I just hope there is retro content available in play now and offline mode.

Agreed. I feel a lot of things need to come together in NBA Live 20, to take that next big step.

I wonder what goes into a decision to make more drastic changes in games like NBA Live.

It's really a shame, on this gen, a "PC port" isnt a real deal for this kind of company.

I guess it's about sales and getting the game to where it needs to be on the primary platforms. Fingers crossed a return is in the pipeline.

I could be wrong, I'm only going by that listing. It's been a reliable indicator in years gone by though, so I'm not getting my hopes up at this point.
