No reason was given other than what you read in the tweet. We won’t know more until they announce it within the 24 hrs that they have given in the tweet. This really sucks for those gamers who were looking to play in the new story. The Heart of Fire when it does launch will be a new tall tale that continues the story of Sir Arthur Pendragon. I was really excited to see the new weapons that are being released. Stay tuned for any updates and 2K games are going to work with the NFL to make games again.
