To say that EA have lost the virtual basketball match to closest competitor Visual Concept and their NBA 2K franchise in past years is an understatement. NBA Live has been dominated by NBA 2K lately, and therefore the 2017 game was never announced, with some even saying it would never be developed.
Now it seems the Korean Ratings Board has leaked the fact that the game seems to be on its way, even though it has missed the October/November 2016 launch window. As spotted by Bryan Wiedey of Pasta Padre, EA has gotten a classification from South Korea's Game Rating and Administration Committee for NBA Live 2017 on Playstation 4 and Xbox One. Is this welcome news to you?
