NBA 2K23 Update 1.02 Patch Notes
- Improved the stability of the title in addition to a number of general improvements to the user experience.
Here is the statement shared by Mike Wang.
Post shots/hooks are currently immune to contests. This will be hotfixed tomorrow morning. The other bug where post hooks can green w/o releasing the stick is known and still being investigated. Tomorrow’s fix should keep hooks in check until we can address it.
In addition to the hotfix that was deployed at the end of last week, they are working on resolving more of the issues that are being reported. According to the official 2K Twitter, this is for stability fixes on the PS5 and Xbox Series X and there are no gameplay changes implemented in this patch.
One of the fixes that are being mentioned by users is regarding main quests. If you were stuck with signing a shoe deal to continue your progress, that should be resolved now.
