After the insane debacle that was the launch / cancellation of NBA Elite 11 (pictured below), EA Sports has gone back to the drawing board for their next basketball game. EA has announced that EA Tiburon is currently working on a completely new simulation title that will ship to stores this coming fall.

The studio certainly has it's work cut out for it as 2K has firmly taken grasop of the title for best basketball game thanks to its stellar NBA 2K11. The last minute pull of NBA Elite 11 sure left a bad taste in the mouths of a lot of loyal fans; the new title will have to make up for the lost ground against competition and the dissatisfaction of its fans. I guess tha ttime will tell as E3 quickly approaches and the veil should be lifted on whatever EA has in mind for the new simulation franchise...
