As noted yet again in the article from earlier today EA Sports had notably been avoiding the topic of roster updates for NBA Jam: On Fire Edition since first announcing it as a feature way back in July. At all costs they ignored consumer and media inquiries into the matter. It seemed as though they hoped the topic would fade out of relevance and thus refused to respond to requests for comment not just from here but other prominent media outlets including Kotaku.
Putting the pressure on the company over the last month finally paid off as just now they have chosen to inform Kotaku that roster updates will be coming for the digital-download title. Though the statement is vague and offers no apologies or prospective time frame at least now the company has determined they need to deliver on an advertised feature that may have been simply swept under the rug without the spotlight being placed on them for the failure to provide it.
