UPDATE: EA Sports has official revealed that the WNBA is coming to NBA Live 18. A trailer has been released to coincide with the announcement.
As far as what modes the WNBA will be available, it appears that only head-to-head matchups will allow the women’s league to be playable both online and offline.
For the first time ever, basketball fans will be able to play as full WNBA teams when NBA Live 18 hits store shelves later this year.
Originally reported by Gamespot, this year’s NBA title from EA Sports will feature all 12 of the WNBA’s teams, including the New York Liberty, Phoenix Mercury and Seattle Storm.
The inclusion of the WNBA has long-been suspected after a leaked menu screenshot from the spring clearly showed the league’s logo.
Sports Gamers Online has reached out to EA Sports for an official comment on the matter, and will update this post should a statement be received.
NBA Live 18 releases later this year for Xbox One and PlayStation 4. An official demo launches for players on August 11.
The demo won’t include the WNBA teams.
