NBA 2K22 looms on the horizon for a release date later this year, and that will include a whole new chapter for MyTEAM.

The ultimate team mode is still thriving in NBA 2K21 with Glitched Reality, but what could NBA 2K22 MyTEAM bring to the table?

MyTEAM in NBA 2K22

MyTEAM is the ultimate team game mode in NBA 2K that allows players to build a legendary squad of players from basketball's past and present.

Player cards that can be placed on your MyTEAM are normally acquired through challenges and packs, and expect this to keep up in NBA 2K22.

GLITCHED REALITY: Season 6 keeps rolling in NBA 2K21 MyTEAM

We've seen plenty of unique seasons in NBA 2K21 like Age of Heroes and Glitched Reality, which 2K will likely look to bring back once again when NBA 2K22 arrives.

NBA 2K22 Trailer

We don't yet have an official trailer for NBA 2K22, but things will likely kick off with the official reveal.

First looks will focus on gameplay and graphics, but it's possible we could get a trailer specific to MyTEAM this year as well.

The most likely time to expect a trailer soon would be at E3, but there's no guarantee that's when 2K decides to release one for NBA 2K22.

Game Modes

We don't yet know exactly which game modes from MyTEAM will return in NBA 2K22, but here's everything NBA 2K21 players had to work with.

  • MyTEAM Unlimited 2.0
  • Triple Threat Online
  • MyTEAM Limited
  • Triple Threat
  • Domination
  • Challenges

We'll likely see most or all of these six MyTEAM game modes return in NBA 2K22, but there might be more to come - as NBA 2K21 added MyTEAM Limited to the lineup.

MyPLAYER needs to link with MyTEAM

One layer of integration that 2K needs to look into is between MyPLAYER and MyTEAM, which MLB The Show 21 has done this year with Ballplayer and Diamond Dynasty.

The link allows users to bring their created player into the Ultimate Team mode, earning experience for the created player while simultaneously working towards overall Ultimate Team progress.

2K Sports could take the cue from Sony San Diego and start to link MyPLAYER with MyTEAM this year in similar fashion with NBA 2K22.

Most Wanted New Features

One big request would be allowing some transfer of MyTEAM progress or cosmetics from NBA 2K21 to NBA 2K22.

It would likely extend the life of NBA 2K21 if players knew their work now would help in NBA 2K22, along with incentivizing people to jump to the new game when it launches.

GAME TIME: Can 2K score a win with these new features?

We could also see new game modes in MyTEAM, possibly geared towards casual players, with one possibility being a co-op option.

A new game mode in MyTEAM could allow players to choose a single MyTEAM card and play a 2v2 or 3v3 match controlling only their player while working with and against others online.

These are just a few of the ways NBA 2K22 could change things up by the time the game's release date finally arrives.
