Following up on our post a couple of days ago about a Tweet possibly hinting at a new NBA Jam coming out at some point in the near future, it appears as though we shouldn’t get our hopes up just yet. GameSpot reached out to EA Sports and was told that the Tweet in question was “unauthorised”, with EA further stating that they “do not have any announcements to make about NBA Jam at this time”. The Tweet has since been deleted.
While EA’s description of the Tweet as “unauthorised” does invite the suggestion that the developer is perhaps conducting internal discussions about releasing another NBA Jam and will ultimately be gauging fan interest in a new game, that is merely speculation at this point. While it wouldn’t be surprising if another Jam game was released at some point due to the series’ popularity and EA owning the rights to the name, nothing appears to be imminent. Should that change, we’ll of course post any details as they emerge.
