EA on new Def Jam Wrestling, NBA Street: “Not right now”

Missing EA’s Def Jam and NBA Street franchises? You’ll have to deal with it for now, I’m afraid; the publishing giant has no current plans to develop new additions to said series.

EA Sports boss man Andrew Wilson said as much to The Guardian (via): “Not right now.”

“We’re always looking at when the right opportunity may happen…We never say never, but it has to be at a time where we have a team that’s passionate about the property. What we’ve found is that passionate teams build great games. 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.”

And that’s just enough words to keep hope alive.
