2K Sports today announced that 11 new Euroleague teams will be part of NBA 2K15. That will bring the total to 25 all with updated rosters.

The teams being added are Brose Baskets Bamberg, Budivelnik Kyiv, Crvena Zvezda Telekom Belgrade, FC Bayern Munich, Galatasaray Liv Hospital Istanbul, JSF Nanterre, Lietuvos Rytas Vilnius, Lokomotiv Kuban Krasnodar, Partizan NIS Belgrade, Stelmet Zielona Gora, and Strasbourg.

Introduced in 2K14 with a multi-year exclusive agreement, Euroleague was represented by 14 teams. While it had the real rosters there was no unique style of play or atmosphere to the games. There also wasn’t a mode dedicated to them nor were they a part of Association, MyCareer or online modes in any fashion. For fans to get interested they’ll need to involve Euroleague in a more meaningful way for 2K15.

    I don’t even care about this news. Their ratings suck and I never played with any of them. I guess it’s for those that have an interest in the Euroleague.

  • 2 CHAINZ GOAT

    Nobody plays with the Euro teams. They’re wasting their time.

    • Keith.

      NBA 2k outsells FIFA, easily, in the US, but FIFA dwarfs 2K’s international sales. I suspect the inclusion — and now expanding upon — the Euro teams available, is 2K looking to duplicate what EA has done with FIFA overseas. Can’t say I blame ‘em.

      • Josh Stubbs

        Wow…I actually agree with Keith for once….

  • Thatdude1994

    *yawn*

    • Iown You

      You thumbed up your own post though…

  • BasedAsian

    Reaaaaaaaaaaallly don’t care about euroleague. They should be putting that time and effort into something else.

  • jbl72

    How much VC is it gonna take for me to unlock this BS?

  • Smsixx

    Adding euro teams??? C’mon… Why not wise up and add the d-league teams in to franchise mode so your prospects can gain experience…this would make the mode more realistic and immersive, and it would also be more practical then euro teams no one will ever play with.

  • Weekend Roady

    I actually like this. Euroleague is actually a pretty big deal overseas and should be a welcome inclusion for the worldwide fan base. I like toying with these teams since it is something new but full integration would be nice. Some solid American players end up making very nice careers for themselves in Europe and it would be cool to see not only a full Euroleague mode but integration into franchise mode where one can scout Europeans and NBA players can leave for more pay and minutes in Europe. It’s far more distinguished than the D League, but that really should be included as well

  • Tetsuo

    Still waiting on them to announce the micro-transactions it’ll take to actually utilize the Euro feature(s).

  • Details

    I hope this doesn’t take away from the classic teams. How about adding more classic teams (Reggie’s Pacers, Barkley’s Suns, etc..)? 2K seems to be rolling in the dough according to Keith lol, so they shouldn’t having a problem paying for their rights.

  • Details

    If they’re going to expand on Euro teams then they need to flush it out. Meaning they need Euro style atmosphere, crowds, commentary, courts, etc… I don’t want t the Euro league games feeling like NBA games. If you’re going to do it then do it right 2K.

    • Skopin

      The Euro-teams also need to play like Euro-teams. We should see more shooting big men, and far less (if any) alley-oops.

  • Wxs

    It would be cool if for my career mode you started as an 18 year old that skipped college to play over in Europe(like Brandon Jennings). This way you can earn some attributes before the rookie showcase. Plus it would make great use of the euroleague.

  • TheMidtownRider

    Time for the WNBA to be finally represented, not the Euroleague. Have Stefanie Dolson of UConn as the spokeswoman; she’s the Jennifer Lawrence of women’s basketball, funny as all hell, and mad baller skillz to boot.

    • Iown You

      I’d put Natalie Achonwa there. She’s getting it done. I mean, I don’t know how good a player she is in the pros, but boy is she hot.

      On a serious note, if 2K were to add WNBA, they’d gain incredibly good publicity. Would be a smart move for them.

  • Jay (The Truth)

    As I said last year, it’s a meaningless addition unless they’re going to put the time into capturing the essence of Euroleague hoops. Currently just a gimmick feature they can slap on a box cover.

  • bhudson296

    They need to take pre-existing injuries off of exhibition mode

  • MDogg20

    I wouldnt mind starting my career in the Euro League then tranfering to the NBA, that would be classic, stop moaning they only added more teams we dont know what new things they added except more Euro teams

  • Shawtyred3

    Should be adding more historic teams instead.

  • Ian Dickson

    Good Evening NBA 2K players, Producers, Directors, and Game Creators One thing that I wanted to be added to My Wishlist for NBA 2K15 is enhancing the Graphics such as the Players faces, Tattoos, Hairstyles, Skin Color, etc. Also, Add some mouthpieces to the game as well!!!!!!!

  • Ian Dickson

    Good Evening NBA 2K Players, Producers, Directors, Game Creators, and others I know ya’ll have been disappointed with NBA Live and even to be honest NBA 2k having glitches and other things. What I want 2kSports to do is to make adjustments to the Player’s faces, Skin color, Jerseys, Head coaches, interviews,( such as after the 1st Quarter going into the 2nd quarter players are interviewed then and after the 3rd quarter going into the 4th quarter players are interviewed then as well not just at halftime. The Overall Graphics needs adjustment and enhanced so that everyone will not complain, fuss, scrutinize, or criticize the game about how it disappointed them once again and how they will never play another NBA Live or NBA 2k game ever. Make the basketball court, cameras, NBA Draft/ Rookie Showcase on MYPLAYER, Players in the gym practicing much more realistic also, include and make the drills that the rookies do before the draft in June much more realistic as well. Once again, Ian D. PRIDE1190NOWGODMAKESAWAY OUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!
