LATEST - Patch Update Brought to Next Gen Consoles

After the release of NBA 2K22 we've seen a couple of patches brought to the game to help with stability. Players on PS5 experienced bugs after the update, but Xbox Series X|S didn't.

You can also expect some updates to be added to The City after you perform the update today. It's a small download so don't expect too many changes though.

THE CITY RETURNS: The next gen mode should get even better

This unique single player experience broke new ground, and hopefully it will continue to do so when NBA 2K22 returns to next gen.

We'll see The City back, but hopefully the game can bring more innovative content as they continue to take advantage of and utilize next gen technology.

Pressure is higher than ever for NBA 2K22

Nailing the transition between current gen and next gen is only going to be harder this year as NBA 2K22 simultaneously launched on both eras of platforms.

However, the good news for 2K Sports is that they could be in for a huge year if things deliver with this much pressure on them.

NBA 2K22 could make or break the franchise, and we dove deeper here into exactly how that might work out this year.
