NBA 2K21 current-gen and next-gen updates – February 11 patch notes

A highly requested change is a part of this new update.

On February 11, 2K rolled out two new patches for NBA 2K21. The first one, a current-generation update, addresses hang and stability issues affecting MyTeam, and provided some seasonal updates to 2K Beach. The second update, targeted for the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5, added some new player likenesses and jerseys, and addressed a few hang issues. Additionally, 2K stated that it has nerfed the effectiveness of fading three-pointers from off-the-dribble, which has become a frequent complaint among 2K21 players on social media.

The next-gen update is currently live, while the current-gen one is only available at the moment for Xbox One, PS4, and PC users via Steam. Other platforms will receive the update at a later date.
