Could Live Finally Be Dead? New Info.

Came across this article from sports gamers online claiming that the Live team has mostly been moved on to other projects with most of them now working on Madden. Does SGO have any credibility? I do not know anything about their site and if they have actual contacts that would have any knowledge. Seems strange they would poach a couple of members from the NBA 2k team just to disband the Live team so I am not sure I believe this article. However they promised to keep the fans updated and we have never again heard a peep so It is certainly a possibility. link below.

EA play is next month. If they don’t mention Live. It’s probably done for 22 at the minimum.

Re: Could Live Finally Be Dead? New Info.

I fully doubt it for this year at the very least. I'm not sure they want to give it up. They are still doing well with Live Mobile. They can afford to pay the NBA License. I would love to see a return. Even if it isn't released this year, it would still be nice to hear a status update on the series.

As the OP said, Dugan was a creative director for Live now he is with Madden. But, I don't see where Scott OG and Rob Jones would work if it wasn't for a NBA title. I wouldn't be surprised if they tried to rebrand themselves. Yes the NBA Elite debacle is still in many minds, but it'll likely be 4 years since last release. So, might as well rebrand since the Live name has been tarnished.

Yeah I am also just waiting to see if they surprise announce anything at the EA Play event. If not I am just going to put this series out of my mind and probably basketball games in general because I have been so disappointed with the other franchise as well. I really though live 18 and 19 started a good direction with real potential but with the team refusing to give any sort of update I have just about lost all hope at this point.

I've been thinking for a good while that OG and Rob could be on the college football team. Rob use to work on Madden back in the day and OG is apparently very knowledgeable about football as well.

Do the same thing tomorrow. And the next. Now do it forever.

It's possible. OG has creative director in his Twitter bio. I don't see it being Madden. So, it could likely be CFB. If it is, we won't hear anything from that for at least a year to early 2023.

"July 20 at 10:00am PT / 7:00pm CET: More EA SPORTS!

Look, we’re not allowed to tell you much about this one yet, sorry. But we can say this Spotlight will highlight an extremely cool new addition to an extremely popular and long-running EA SPORTS franchise. We may have said too much already. Just keep your calendar free, OK? "


I seen on Twitter speculate that this could mean a new sports game being added to the EA Sports slate. Some are suggesting it can be a return of a older sports franchise title. Some are hoping Fight Night, NBA Street, SSX, etc. I don't see Fight Night, yet. I think they want to see how ESBC does sell wise, before jumping back into it. I wouldn't mind seeing a NBA Street return, as well as a EA Sports BIG return. Those arcade titles were well received in the 6th generation.

Yeah I have seen this as well and it certainly gives a sliver of hope but that is all. That statement says "extremely" twice and "cool" which leads me to believe it is code for a new SSX game. At first I defaulted to Live thinking that was the only long running franchise as well as Fight Night, but Fight Night hasn't been rumored at all and none of the boxers have said anything about being approached while ESBC has singed up almost everyone of interest except for a few. We know they were working on live a couple of years ago and a year ago poached two people from the 2k team so it seemed logical at first. But with the seeming code words I mentioned I am betting on SSX. If true it will be a low blow for Live and Fight Night fans though as most people don't associate those EA BIG games as EA Sports franchises though they were released under that banner.
