The series finally returned with [[NBA Live 14]], a game that received mostly negative reviews. Since then, the series has struggled to regain sales and critical acclaim. The subsequent releases, [[NBA Live 15]] and [[NBA Live 16]], received more mixed reviews, but were generally been considered to be slight improvements over NBA Live 14. The next game in the series, [[NBA Live 18]], will be released in Fall 2017. A mobile game for iOS and Android devices, [[NBA Live Mobile]], was released in Canada on February 17th 2016, and worldwide on July 5th 2016. Essentially a mobile version of [[Ultimate Team]], the game has been generally well-received, compared to the most recent console versions. After skipping a release in 2016, 2017's NBA Live 18 was better received. NBA Live 19 also received praise for getting the series back on track.
