Full WNBA playable in NBA Live 18

Electronic Arts has announced that the entire WNBA league, with all its teams and players, will be playable for the first time in a major basketball videogame.

When NBA Live 18 launches later this year, WNBA players will be entirely playable. Sadly, they will be limited to the play now mode so there is no other mode support for WNBA teams. So no franchise or league mode. It remains to be seen whether WNBA teams will be available for online play.

This is an obvious step forward, why the fuck weren’t WNBA players in Live or 2K before this? I understand why a stand alone WNBA game would not sell enough to warrant its own separate development so hopefully the bundling of WNBA and NBA games continues.
