"We do not have an NCAA Basketball
game in development at this time, and we're currently reviewing the future of our NCAA Basketball
business," said EA Sports' senior director of communications David Tinson in a recent Game Informer
interview. "This was a difficult decision, but we remain a committed partner to the NCAA
and its member institutions."
It's an odd move, considering EA's biggest rival, 2K Sports' NCAA College Hoops
series, hasn't seen any new releases since its 2K8
installment, leaving the market wide open. Tinson confirmed that the team responsible for the series won't be laid off, but rather assimilated into the NBA Jam
and NBA Live
teams at EA Canada, dashing our hopes that an EA-developed Harlem Globetrotters game could come from this.
