Will NBA Live 15 Live Up To Fan Expectations? EA’s Sean O’Brien Answers

By   /   Jun 6, 2014

EA has announced that NBA Live 15 will be coming for Xbox One and PS4 on October 7, making it the second title in the series to be released on the new consoles. In an open letter, Executive Producer Sean O’Brien admits that their previous iteration NBA Live 14 was a flop because of two major reasons.

According to Sean, the visuals weren’t up to what the fans expected from a next-generation title, and the gameplay wasn’t polished enough. He also assures fans of the basketball franchise that NBA Live 15 will not have these shortcomings.

O’Brien cited refined player models and lighting as visual improvements, while on the gameplay side, EA’s been in touch with NBA coaches to help give the game more realism.

To say that NBA Live 14 was somewhat of a disappointment and didn’t provide the comeback the long-running basketball franchise needed would be a massive understatement. With a Metascore of 43 for the PS4 version, it was one of the poorly received launch games on the new consoles.

The game just didn’t feel properly finished and lacked finesse in player controls but Sean assures that this year shooting, passing and dribbling, in fact, all aspects of the game are improved and players will have fun.
