Finally! It has happened. In the next videogame, NBA Live 18, the WNBA has been added to the gameplay.
The Women’s National Basketball Association (WNBA) was founded in 1997, but the rosters were only just added to the game. This gives the great possibility for the female (and male) gamers to play with their favorite WNBA players, such as Seattle’s Sue Bird. The game will make all players from the twelve teams available.
NBA Live is not as popular as the more known basketball game, NBA 2K, and they recently had some bad receptions of the game. This meant that in 2017, there was no NBA Live game released, though the company began releasing the game yearly since 1994. NBA Live needed a big change, and it seemed like a great opportunity to add the female players to the game, as this will likely open up a whole new field for the gamers. It could even lead up to more fans for the WNBA, as people could get curious how the real Sue Bird performs in a game, instead of the way someone makes her play in the game. Even the WNBA players themselves showed their enthusiasm about this new development
