EA has decided to cancel NBA Elite 11 altogether. The decision comes a month after the game's last-minute delay.

The cancellation was announced during an EA conference call with investors. Chief Operating Officer John Schappert revealed that development of future Elite games would be handled by EA Tiburon. Elite 11 was being developed by EA Canada, who had also handled several installments of NBA Live.

Live was previously EA's flagship basketball sim series. However, they decided to re-brand the franchise as NBA Elite, perhaps to emphasize that they had made big changes to the basic formula. New features being introduced in Elite 11 (the first game to carry the Elite tag) included dual stick controls.

Elite 11 was first slated for an October 5th release. However, the game was delayed until 2011 to allow for extra polishing. At the time, EA stated that they will be providing updates to NBA Live 10 throughout the current NBA season as compensation.
