EA fiscal report points to NCAA Basketball cancellation

Man, I feel terrible for Blake Griffin. First, he gets drafted by the perennially hapless, possibly cursed Los Angeles Clippers. Then, before he even plays a single NBA game, the Clippers reveal that he has a stress fracture in his left kneecap; the injury sidelines him for the entire 2009-10 season. And now, it appears that he will go down as the last cover athlete in EA Sports’ NCAA Basketball series.

In a fiscal report earlier today, Electronic Arts laid out its slate of planned releases for the rest of its fiscal year 2010. The expected EA Sports games were there -- Tiger Woods PGA Tour 11, NCAA Football 11, Madden NFL 11, NBA Live 11, NBA Jam, NHL 11, FIFA 11, and EA Sports MMA -- but NCAA Basketball 11 was nowhere to be found. As pastapadre.com points out, this isn’t all that surprising considering the poor sales of the NCAA Basketball games in recent years and a nagging collegiate licensing issue.

EA hasn’t officially announced that NCAA Basketball is canceled, but that’s essentially a foregone conclusion at this point. I guess they’ll transfer those folks to the NBA Live 11 team, which is going to need all the help it can get now that Mike Wang has gone back to Visual Concepts under 2K Sports.

EA spent tons of money on this 'kooky' 'viral' Madden trailer

I bet the people involved had a lot of fun shooting this offbeat Madden 15 commercial. It's also an obviously expensive production (beyond the celebrity costs) meant to be "weird" and, hopefully, shared (viral) over the Net....more
