When NBA Live 14 was released last November, the reviews, as stated before, weren’t flattering. Many fours and fives were given out to the franchise’s first title in four years, which didn’t sit well with the development team at EA Sports.
These low scores lead the team to realize that they couldn’t just wait until NBA Live 15 was released to address a lot of the issues. Instead, they worked countless hours to prepare gameplay and visual updates to NBA Live 14 to prove to their audience that they weren’t just in it for the money.
“We got hammered, and we didn’t like seeing the scores that were coming in,” executive producer Sean O’Brien said.
