It’s a technical foul. NBA Live 15 has been pushed back a few weeks for polish.
In an open letter by EA Sports’ Sean O’Brien, he explains the delay. Apparently there were some aspects of the gameplay that still needed some fine tuning. NBA Live 15 was originally slated for release on October 7th.
Considering all the work that’s gone in so far, we will be taking a few extra weeks to polish the game and make sure you get an incredible NBA experience from the moment you first boot up the title. This extra development time means we will be moving our launch date to October 28 to line up to opening night of the 2014-15 NBA season. This was a hard decision, but it’s the right one, as we are totally committed to delivering the highest-quality game we possibly can.
Hopefully we can expect tip-off this October 28th when NBA Live 15 launches on Xbox One and PS4.
