NBA Live Developer Scott O'Gallagher Departs To Join NBA 2K

Scott O'Gallagher, a former professional basketball player and associate designer on NBA Live 14, has left Electronic Arts to join 2K to work on the NBA 2K series.

Electronic Arts confirmed his departure to us back in June, but his new position at 2K was only recently confirmed when website noticed O'Gallagher' twitter profile was updated to include the new credit, "Gameplay Producer for NBA2K."

Our Take
It's unclear exactly why O'Gallagher left Electronic Arts to join 2K. This wasn't an official announcement, so Electronic Arts and 2K may not want to make his transfer a big deal. The last few 2K basketball titles have been received much better than the Live titles, but it's unclear if that was a factor in O'Gallagher's decision to move over. In any case, it's not common for a developer to jump between competing franchises in this way.
