NBA 2K14 PS4 Dev Diary: MyCAREER

Ronnie Singh's Avatar Posted by Sr. Community Manager, 2K Games

MyCAREER has been one of NBA 2K14‘s most-played modes. The question is, with the next generation of technology, how do we create a fresh experience beyond playing games on the court? Creating a new cinematic experience that rivals a Hollywood film – that’s how!

With over 300 pages of script, MyCAREER on PS4 takes you on an emotional journey like you’ve never experienced before. Our goal was to place you IN the game. From competing on the court, to decisions you make off the court, the experience has been expanded in an immersive journey through next gen technology.

For example, early on you may not get the minutes you want as a rookie. As your team calls a timeout, you have a decision to make – remain sitting or get up and celebrate with your teammates. Each decision affects the way you are viewed both from your team’s viewpoint and the way fans look at you. This is just one of many deep decisions you make, with your actions opening up hours and hours of completely new content both on and off the court.

Things like personality, choosing to answer in polite ways or with arrogance, fans liking you, endorsements and personality badges all factor into your decisions. Even choosing which endorsements to sign with (ala adidas, Nike or Jordan brand, for example) have an effect on your career. Your decisions even affect things like potential trades, social media feeds and endorsements and MyCAREER relationships (team chemistry, GM relationships, loyalty with local and national fans etc). Things like rhythm and team chemistry can impact the way your team plays. The first year experience will take you through all 82 games, and you can chose to play Key Games in the second season onward.

Simply put, MyCAREER lets you make decisions about your NBA career like never before seen. Of course, this is just a small taste of the exciting next-gen MyCAREER mode. We have plenty of surprises up our sleeves. You can grab NBA 2K14 on PS4 right now! Get your journey started and make a name for yourself. This is your story. Your legacy. Your career.

Give me a follow on Twitter @Ronnie2K for all the NBA 2K14 goodness. Thanks for reading!

Is there anyway to sync roster updates with my career? I HATE these random trades that always happen. Also is there a way to allow use of alternate uniforms in my career?

Is there a way to connect your offline mycareer player to online for the ps4

I have been having some problems with my career and I don’t know why I used to only not have access to the game day gear shop so I deleted the game and then downloaded it again I now have access to game day gear shop again but cannot see what I am buying and cannot put different clothes on my myplayer. Please fix this as mycareer and the park are my favorite game modes and I really don’t want to be stuck wearing the brown shirt and sweatpants on the park

Is there any way to add customization for my player? These faces look real but not at all like I want and the hairstyles are awful. Some other things need tweaked to like the tendencies of some players, for example i got drafted by the Suns and you can’t get the ball around Gerald Green because he just jacks it up no matter the play I call, but all in all a great game as usual from 2k.

Please help Ronnie or someone I spent so much time playing every game of the season and do not want to scrap this season and waste my time! This is ridiculous that this is happening

I want to do an online league w some of my friends, but the feature won’t work. Always says network unavailable or if I get all the teams in and invited it won’t let us play a game….. Says network unavailable when we try. Will this ever be fixed? Also, in MY GM, I am in season 6 at the very end of the season and when I try to begin the next year it kicks me out of the game and gives me an error code. Frustrating since I’ve invested so much time and $ (buying weight rooms, player upgrades etc. for my team) now that’s all gone and I spent like $20 and all my time. GONE?! Will this be fixed?

Can you play 2 different MyCareers at the same time? Ex: You and your friend want to play each other’s teams with their respective MyPlayer

So i have the Ps4 and my player in my career made it to the three point shootout dunk contest rookie challenge and the all star game. When the screen appears to congratulate me saying CONGRATULATIONS! i cant dismiss the screen. Its not frozen or anything i just cant come off of the congratulations screen. P.S this all happened offline no internet content or updates

I’ve found internet and its updating the game….i am going to delete my player and start fresh will i be able to progress pass the all star weekend screen?

Why can I only access my VC I’ve earned in my career mode and not my overall VC in my career mode

GengarSweep said:

December 25th, 9:33 pm

I’ve been bummned about the fact that I can;t see standings, my stats or anyone else’s on Mycareer mode. I feel like it was a step down from what you guys have done. Anyways nice work on the game apart from that point the game is almost perfect.

The game is working great for me so far except for MyCareer. I purchased 80,000 VC so the process of upgrading would go a bit quicker but after I purchased the VC, it doesn’t show up on MyCareer. When I play MyTeam or anything else, there is 80,333 VC, but when I play MyCareer, it’s just 333. I have been searching frantically and I seem to see others online with the same problem and it’s really frustrating because I use my VC for only MyCareer and I can’t use it.

@Ronnie Singh

When I go to and go through the tabs, there is NO screen for Award Races. Before selecting it, it says headlines, calendar, injury report, award races, and more. I only see the first three. Why can’t I see award races or NBA/team records? You replied saying they were there but they clearly aren’t. PLEASE FIX or at least give an explanation.

The Description says that this data needs an active internet connection (my internet is working fine.) Myteam and NBA today won’t appear to the title screen. DAMN 2k!!! i’ve already done so many upgrades to mycareer and played 30 games…. I already updated my 2k14 to 1.03..

Just bought 2k14 a few days ago and been playing MyCareer. It Kicked me offline and when I went click MyCareer It would not load my file. It is making me create a new player. I press triangle and see MyCareer saved on file 1 but every time I click it to load it says “This save requires an active connection to the 2K sports servers. To create a new save, press Triangle upon dismissing this dialog”. I am connected to 2K’s server but for some reason it still wont load. Please help me out.

Hey, last night and all of today, MyTeam has not appeared on the menu. This mode is mainly why I bought the game and I bought and spent vc on myteam already, but now it’s not showing up. My Internet connection is fine, so I’m wondering what the deal is. Is everyone else having the same issue?

Heirjordan237 said:

Yo Ronnie, I got 2k14 on PS4 and it’s great overall but I had a few questions/requests.

Can we please get an update so that my player can wear a calf sleeve and a knee pad at the same time? I thought you could because it works in the season mode but it doesn’t in MyCareer.

Are you going to add an association mode for next gen consoles?

And last, are we ever going to be able to edit the myplayer faces like before?

Good Day, Ronnie 2K!

Im a NBA2K fan from The Bahamas, from the DreamCast days. But anyways, all thats irrelevant. I’ve been playing the MyCareer mode on PS4 and I recently became endorsed by Jordan Brand, however, I noticed that there is no Champs Store in my My Career mode, and there seems to be no way to access the Jordan tennis Ive gained access to by any other means. Is there supposed to be a Champs Store in the My Career menu? Is there some other way to access these thing? Am I in the entirely wrong mode (Online/Offline? Can you even help me?

Thanks in advance…
