Associate designer for NBA Live 15 departs to work on NBA 2K15

Scott O'Gallagher is going from hoops to…other hoops.

It's interesting to see someone switch from one franchise to another, especially when they have so much in common to begin with. In this case, basketball.

Scott O'Gallagher, a former pro basketball player who was working as associate designer for EA Sports and the NBA Live franchise, has recently departed to go work over at 2K Sports as the Gameplay Producer for the forthcoming NBA 2K15.

O'Gallagher previously left EA in June, but the hire for 2K was only recent, as he updated his twitter profile with his new job listing, followed by the comment "Cheese". It's an interesting departure, but one that's bound to make NBA 2K15 even better when it debuts this October.

      Besides Fifa, does EA make any quality sports titles anymore?

        I imagine millions upon millions of people who buy madden every year would say madden, but im guessing you fall in the camp of it just being a roster refresh every year.

        Every year EA adds a few little things to FIFA but it seems to mostly be a FUT upgrade. The money making potential of FUT really keeps them from improving obvious bugs in other modes. But it doesn't matter. I'm hooked and keep buying them.

        The NHL games? Sucks because I'd want a 2K NHL game, but I think EA holds exclusive rights.

        I don't think the FIFA games are particularly good either.
