The timeframe for the delisting of NBA Unrivaled is currently uncertain. The delisting may have happened as early as 2010 with the merger between Tecmo and Koei requiring the game to be updated. Given its negative response and the developer’s pivot to mobile and kid-friendly titles, Tecmo Koei may have chosen to remove the game from sale.

Had the game not been removed in 2010 it would have been delisted with the expiration of Tecmo’s license from the NBA, potentially taking place as late as 2016, depending on the length of the license.
