Even though 2K assured everyone that this would not happen, it has now happened. They shut down the servers for NBA 2K14 for PS4 and Xbox One. By doing that they wiped the memory of everything on everyone’s save files. Breaking their promise that players would keep their saves.
Players can no longer access their saves on their own consoles. 2K did not warn anyone that this might happen. You have to restart if you want to play the career mode in the game. A 2K support employee came out and addressed this:
_ “This means that if you had created a MyCareer or a MyGM online save file that was once connected to our servers it too sadly has retired and is no longer available for use and it would be necessary to re-create these files as offline saves.”_
Players seem to be very angry with this and are expressing their opinion on this on social media.

What are your thoughts on 2K shutting down a server for a game that’s barely a year old? EA usually have servers up for a few years in comparison. Let us know in the comments below.
