    While it was always clear that developer Saber Interactive had a long term plan for the NBA Playgrounds series it came as somewhat of a surprise to find it now as an annually released title. Arcade-style games are few and far between these days, but featuring the official league license is a big selling point that most games of this nature wouldn't have behind them.

    A week ago NBA Playgrounds 2 was officially announced with a stated summer release window. That would have put its landing date between June 21st and September 22nd. The game may actually be a spring release instead with Gaming Tailgate first spotting the PlayStation Store product page which includes its apparent release date and pricing. If the Sony page for the game is accurate - and considering they are taking pre-orders it seems reasonable to assume that it is - NBA Playgrounds 2 will...

    Arcade sports games have been making a comeback in recent years due to the efforts of independent developers and that continues as NBA Playgrounds is getting a sequel sooner than many would have anticipated.
