NBA 2K21 has sent out the latest update, and this time the next gen fixes take aim at several modes including The City and MyNBA according to patch notes.
Here's everything we know about Version 1.09 and what's been addressed in this next gen NBA 2K21 update.
NBA 2K21 Version 1.09 - Next Gen Update & Patch Notes
NBA 2K21 has now released the Next-Gen Patch Update 7, or Version 1.09 for PS5 and Xbox Series X|S, which should be live on both consoles.
- Improved player lighting and shadows in The City during daytime hours
- Improved an issue that was causing slow bootup times for some PS5 users. More improvements to come
- Addressed a potential hang in MyNBA Online when accepting trade offers
It's not clear how much more was fixed, but the focus on The City and a PS5 boot issue seem to confirm the focus on next gen with this update.
We'll have more details on the full patch notes once they're released and confirmed by 2K Games.
Multiple players say PS5 loading screen is still broken
Unfortunately, one of the core things that 2K Games aimed to fix in the Version 1.09 Update for NBA 2K21 seems to have remained broken or worsened.
Multiple replies to their tweet announcing the update as live have players stating their load screen is even worse, sometimes stuck for five to 25 minutes or more.
It may be why the full patch notes and Courtside Report haven't gone live yet, as 2K Games could be working to remedy the issue if the Version 1.09 Update for next gen has actually gone wrong.
Players who haven't yet downloaded it may want to backup their save files if possible, as there were issues with a previous update that affected save data.
