Looking for a new NBA Street announcement? It might be a while, according to a recent interview The Guardian had with Andrew Wilson, EA Sports' president.

You're relaunching Fifa Street and SSX early next year. Are there any plans to bring back other franchises from the EA Sports Big label, such as Def Jam Wrestling or NBA Street?

Not right now. We're always looking at when the right opportunity may happen. We launched NBA Jam at the end of last year and we've launched NBA Jam: On Fire Edition on PSN and Xbox Live this month. Fifa Street is coming back for the first time in three years and SSX is back for the first time in four.

We never say never, but it has to be at a time where we have a team that's passionate about the property. What we've found is that passionate teams build great game. If we have that sort of team and we think the time's right to make that sort of product, we'd jump right back in there.

I loved NBA Street games. Back in the day when I first got my Gamecube. Street 2 was one of the first games I got for it and I easily put 50 hours into that game if not more. Street 3 was good too but for some reason I didn't like it as much. I bought the first one too after it got to be like $5 off of ebay. It was decent but it just made me want to play 2. I still haven't tried Homecourt but often think about it when I see it sitting on store shelves.

As far as Def Jam Vendetta. I've only played the first one but that was one of the funnest wrestling games I've ever played and i've played a lot.

A reboot would be nice. The last Def Jam sucked. NBA Street 2 was the best.

Make a new NFL Street! But more like NFL Street 2. NFL Street 3 and NFL Tour stunk.

I wonder if the lockout had something to do with this decision?
