NBA Elite 11 cancelled

EA Tiburon taking over next year.

NBA Elite 11's status has changed from 'delayed' to 'cancelled', publisher EA has announced.

EA's John Schappert made the announcement at an EA investor call today. He went on to add that the franchise would be back next year, with the development reins being picked up by Madden/Tiger Woods studio EA Tiburon.

No reason was offered for the cancellation but it's clear that there have been problems at the publisher's EA Canada outpost, where the game was being made. The publisher made 100 redundancies at the developer last month.

Sports fans will have to settle on the excellent NBA Jam for their b-ball fix, out now on Wii and arriving on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on 26th November.
