EA Not Planning Anymore Def Jam or NBA Street Games

Posted on October 13, 2011 AT 06:18am

THE BUZZ: EA has revealed that it currently has no plans to release any new games in either the Def Jam or NBA Street, series despite a return of FIFA Street.

“Not right now,” Andrew Wilson, EA Sports Vice President told The Guardian when asked if there would be anymore former EA big titles making a comeback. ”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.”

“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,” he added.

EGM’s TAKE: The lack of these titles isn’t a major blow to the games industry but we hope they will get their chance again some day. The original NBA Street is still a favorite of ours to plug-in when we’ve had a few beers and fancy a few monster dunks to liven things up.
