A listing in the monthly Xbox Live Rewards roundup hints that NBA Live 13 will see a digital release when it arrives, supposedly in October.
"NBA Live 13-Digital" is the listing, first noticed by Pastapadre, among dozens of titles eligible for Xbox Live Rewards in the coming months. "NBA Live 13 - Digital - DLC" is the eligible content itself.
NBA Live 13 was not mentioned in Electronic Arts' quarterly earnings call on Monday, raising speculation something might be wrong with the title. It has not been given a definite release date, which in this case would typically be set by the NBA. Competitor NBA 2K13 releases Oct. 2.
