As we wait for more news on NBA Live 13 and the reveal of this year’s cover player, NLSC Forum member JerrodSwanson22 has put forth an interesting suggestion. He noted that the official NBA Live Facebook page has been sharing images of the previous NBA Live covers as part of EA Sports’ “Throwback Thursdays”, beginning with NBA Live 2005 on July 5th. Should this be leading up to the cover reveal for NBA Live 13, the announcement could be coming on August 23rd if they also include the NBA Elite 11 cover, or August 16th if they don’t; the latter is perhaps more likely.
This video from mid June also mentions the cover announcement coming in a month to six weeks, which could indicate it’s happening this week or next. Kevin Durant, Blake Griffin and Derrick Rose can all be ruled out as they will be gracing the NBA 2K13 cover, but LeBron James remains a popular suggestion, especially given the silhouette that has appeared in teaser images for NBA Live 13 so far.
When do you think the cover announcement will be made? Who do you think it will be? And what are your thoughts as we eagerly await more news on the game? Sound off in the comments below and join in the discussion in the NBA Live 13 section of the NLSC Forum!
