Microsoft has released a new update for Xbox platforms, and a major focus of it is dedicated towards stability. Several titles, including Battlefield 2042, NBA 2K22, and FIFA 22, are all set to get a bit of help from Xbox, as it looks to handle a problem that has been going on for quite some time.

Xbox Experiences Principal Program Manager Jonathan Hildebrandt confirmed on November 17 on Xbox Wire that the newest update for the Xbox Series X/S is targeted towards preventing crashes and improving stability across some of the platform’s major titles.

Two of the affected games are NBA 2K22 and FIFA 22, as both have had issues with crashes dating back to 2K22’s release in September. The former’s major issue seems to be related to The City, NBA 2K’s open-world mode that integrates MyCareer with The Park, Rec, and other MyPlayer-specific modes.

As far as Battlefield 2042 is concerned, Hildebrandt added that Xbox will continue to work with EA with regard to stability issues in Battlefield 2042. This comes on the heels of Battlefield 2042 developer DICE stating that it will implement a patch that should improve the servers ahead of the title’s November 19 release.

UPDATE (11/18): A previous version of this news story incorrectly stated that the update went live on November 18. This has been corrected.
