For those of you that don’t know me already, my name is Erick Boenisch, Senior Producer on NBA 2K18.Some of you may know me by my online handle, Sim Baller.It’s my honor to be the first person to welcome you to NBA 2K18!The team here at Visual Concepts has made some HUGE strides with the game this year, which we will be telling you about in the coming weeks. Those are the exact three words I lead off with last year in NBA 2K17’s My GM/My LEAGUE blog.For today, I feel privileged to kick it all off with a detailed dive into what we have done with My GM/My LEAGUE this year. We have used those three words to serve the NBA 2K community well for many, many years now.Without any further ado, let’s get to what you came here for! In a space where other developers continually shy away, the team here at Visual Concepts has once again delivered a robust and thoughtful list of franchise features that will keep you coming back for more.In the franchise landscape, we have been pushing the envelope for the entirety of the current generation of consoles: – At the dawn of the next gen, NBA 2K14 presented us with an entirely new mode, My GM.My GM aimed to personalize the experience of being a GM.
Your actions drove the narrative of your franchise, unlike any mode had ever done before.– NBA 2K15 brought us the wildly popular My LEAGUE mode; an experience that brought forth the tenet of complete user control and customization.– NBA 2K16 introduced Team Relocation, giving you the ability to relocate your teams to new cities, and create entire new arena/court floor/uniform designs.– NBA 2K17 saw the introduction of the League Expansion feature, Dynamic Rule Changes, the Start Today game mode, the ability to upload and share your created team packages, and so much more.
