EA Sports has confirmed today that NBA Live 15 will be released on October 28, which is now three weeks after the launch date against NBA 2K15 on October 7. The delay was made official on the game’s blog, citing a desire to “polish the game.”
Official Statement //
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. You’ll be hearing a lot more from us over the coming weeks, starting with a brand-new gameplay blog that will give you the first details on all the ways we plan to deliver on our promises to build a better experience.
EA hopes NBA Live 15 will mark a return to form for the troubled series, following negative fan and press feedback, and numerous cancellations in recent years.
