Originally asked if the development team was going to bring back the shot stick from their former “NBA Elite” series, O’Brien told the gamer not to worry about the game’s shooting mechanic.
O’Brien later went on to say that Elite’s shooting mechanic wasn’t balanced enough, making it easy to sink shots from half court.
“We’ve also seen some great progress with gameplay that makes the experience more realistic and, most importantly, more fun with a much better overall flow,” O’Brien said in his open-letter on EA Sports’ website this past June. “We want teams to play just like their real-world counterparts, and to that end we’ve spent a lot of time this season talking with NBA coaches to better understand their schemes and philosophies, which we can then implement in-game. Another equally important area of focus is improving flow and responsiveness in every area where you touch the ball, and we feel that shooting, passing and dribbling all feel much better this year.”
“NBA Live 15” is set for an October 9 release on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
