After recently learning Kevin Durant will be on the game’s cover, today 2K Sports announced we will have an expanded Euroleague lineup coming in NBA 2K15. The game will feature 11 additional fully updated teams from the Turkish Airlines Euroleague, including top-level FC Bayern Munich of Germany, JSF Nanterre of France, Galatasaray Liv Hospital Istanbul of Turkey and Partizan NIS Belgrade of Serbia.

“The global response to the integration of Euroleague teams into the NBA 2K series last year was fantastic, and a key factor in our decision to include the full complement of 2013-14 Euroleague teams in NBA 2K15,” Greg Thomas, President of Visual Concepts, said in a release. “We know there’s a huge passion for basketball in Europe, and we’re excited to further expand the number of playable European teams to make this the most comprehensive basketball game ever.”

“After an exciting start last year, our partnership with 2K takes another strong step forward with an expansion of the Euroleague Basketball teams in NBA 2K15,” Jordi Bertomeu, President and CEO of Euroleague Basketball, said in a release. “The appeal of our style of basketball to video game fans was evident right away with just 14 Euroleague Basketball teams last year, and we are sure that seeing many more of them in NBA 2K15 will be another hit.”

Here is the full list of 25 teams from the Euroleague that’ll be included in 2K15:

    I get from a marketing stand point why 2K wants to include these teams. People in Europe are more inclined to buy the game if “local” heros are in the game, but honestly, I don’t see what this has to do with the NBA per se. We buy the 2K series for the NBA game. If there is a market there, then 2K should split the series (like they did with the NCAA teams) and have a game for the European leagues.
