NBA Live Developer Leaves EA to Join 2K Games, Will Work on NBA 2K

Former professional basketball player and NBA Live 14 Associate Designer, Scott O’Gallagher has departed Electronic Arts to join 2K Games. He will now work on the NBA 2K series. 

O’Gallagher had left EA back in June, but it wasn’t until now that he updated his Twitter profile to add his new role of Gameplay Producer for NBA2K. We’re not quite sure why he has jumped ship, but it’s evident that 2K Games currently has an edge over EA in terms of fan response and reception of the basketball games. 

Recently, 2K Games announced that singer Pharrell Williams will “curate the most extensive and unique soundtrack compilation in NBA 2K franchise history.”

NBA 2K15 will be out for PC, PlayStation 3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One on October 7.
