EA Sports confirmed to Kotaku today that their downloadable sports title, NBA Jam: On Fire Edition, will be the beneficiary of a roster update at some point down the road. “We will be providing roster updates for NBA Jam: On Fire Edition this season,” said EA’s rep. Specifically when or how often they’ll be refreshed was not divulged. The spokeswoman only stated that there is still “more information to come.”
The game released back in October in the middle of a turbulent time for the NBA: the lockout that was resolved last month. A number of players moved from one team to another when the brief free agency period finally got underway, leaving NBA Jam’s roster way out of sync. Roster updates reflecting the current personnel on each team would remedy the issue.
