It appears EA Tiburon has laid off some employees from the Madden team, according to Inquisitr.

It wasn't long ago when some of the NCAA developers were impacted by the game being cancelled, while others were brought over to the Madden team.

These types of things typically happen at the end of the cycle. We have reached out to EA Sports for comment. We wish the best to those that were impacted.

WWE 2K15 is making it's way to the new generation of consoles this fall and with it there are a number of changes coming to the franchise. I recently got a chance to see a full presentation by gameplay producer Mark Little who highlighted a number of changes. The Visual Concepts team is now essentially the lead developer for the game with assistance from long time developer Yukes. With that, you can feel the 2K influence in the game right away.

We have just confirmed with 2K Sports, NBA 2K15 will have Ernie Johnson and Shaquille O'Neal. Unfortunately, it will not feature Inside the NBA.

You can watch this quick video clip of Ernie Johnson at 2K Uncensored, talking about what it was like to be on the NBA 2K15 motion capture set with Shaq. He also provides his best "Shaq impression".

No other details were revealed to us. So we don't know exactly how the duo will be utilized. We hope to hear more later this week.

However, anything is fair game, and Sean plans to stick around for awhile and answer your questions under the EASportsNHL username.

It’s official: EASHL, GM Connected, OTP, and Live the Life will not be in NHL 15.

The modes which will be in the game, will include play now, Be A Pro, Be a GM, Online Vs, Hockey Ultimate Team, and NHL Moments Live. The plan, as of right now, is to deliver Online Team Play via a patch after launch.

We sat down with Producer Sean Ramjagsingh to discuss why those modes were not included and to talk about the modes which are in the game. The discussion also turns to how to the team deals with community reactions and plans for the future of the franchise, which admittedly are quite exciting. See for yourself after the jump!

The TNT Inside the NBA studio crew could be featured in NBA 2K15, as noted by SLAMonline and YompaGaming.

Hints have led many to believe it was coming, Shaq kissing LD2K during a livestream and the more obvious 2K Uncensored today, hosted by Ernie Johnson, Jr.

Whatever the case might be, we do know Ernie is involved with NBA 2K15 somehow and possibly Shaq. Whether that leads to the entire crew to be announced has yet to be determined.

Could we see the whole crew? Halftime and post-game shows? Gone Fishing? What would you like to see?

Hopefully we hear more soon.

Much like the real game of golf, creating it’s digital counterpart can be difficult and frustrating, but extremely rewarding when you hit the sweet spot. Trying to emulate the tension of needing to knock a wedge close to the pin from 125 yards out in a video game is not easy, but that’s exactly what developer HB Studios is trying to do.

In a year in which video game golf fans thought they were going to be denied country club membership, a small Nova Scotian developer has jumped in to fill the void. Now the question is, have they drilled a 40-foot putt, or left just short of the cup?

It appears Xbox One users won't have CoachGlass exclusively anymore, EA Sports announced today that PlayStation 4 users will get the feature this year as well.

For those who may not be familiar with the feature, CoachGlass is a second-screen experience that is compatible with most smartphones and tablets. As EA says, "The experience is catered for the player who really wants that added layer of information about an opponent."

Here are some of the highlights, check out the video here.
  • Whole New Look - The goal with the new system was to feed data that enhances the Madden game experience without distracting from the on-field action. To do this, we created a system that incorporates colorized charts to make information easily digestible.
  • All About Tendencies-Another goal was to bring some balance to a CoachGlass System that was primarily a defensive tool in year one. We learned that most CoachGlass users already have a basic idea of football strategy, and want that next layer of information that keeps them one step ahead of their opponent.
  • Taking the Next Step- In the first implementation of CoachGlass, users had the ability to call plays from the device but were limited to only having defensive playcall suggestions. We’ve now evened the playing field and made offensive suggestions available as well. Another small win was including the QB in the list of offensive players currently on the field.
Be sure to let us know if you are excited about CoachGlass, and also be sure to check out the full article on EA Sports' website.

In a recent video on Twitch, an overview of the Xbox One NHL 15 achievement list seems to indicate that neither EASHL or GM Connected are in the game. This, of course, joins the plethora of evidence indicating that EASHL and GM Connected have not made the jump onto the new generation of consoles this year. We are still expecting official news on the fate of both soon.

If you are interested in seeing the achievement list itself, check it out starting at 1 minute, 8 seconds in.
