Wednesday morning, the (unverified) EA SPORTS NBA JAM Twitter account
asked followers to "Retweet if you’re ready for a new NBA JAM!
The account had been inactive since April 18, 2012 until a handful
of random tweets
on February 9 and 10. Those tweets mentioned Blake Griffin, Kevin Durant, LeBron James, Damian Lillard, as well as the NBA, the Philadelphia 76ers, the Los Angeles Clippers, and Bleacher Report. (It is worth noting that that Griffin, Durant, and James are all former/current NBA 2K cover athletes.)
EA SPORTS released NBA JAM in fall 2010 and NBA JAM: On Fire Edition in October 2011. A third iteration of the game would not be surprising given a playtest session at EA Canada last April
and following a roster update for the Android version of NBA JAM in late January
UPDATE: Per Operation Sports
, a statement from EA SPORTS: Yesterday, there was unauthorized use of the @nbajam Twitter handle. We do not have any announcements to make about NBA JAM at this time.
