But fixed how is the question.

If you want to play a basketball sim, the only game in town is the NBA 2K series, and to be fair, it’s still a pretty solid franchise all things considered. But the series has been criticized recently for its aggressive monetization, including unskippable ads that appeared in NBA 2K21 recently. While many weren’t all that surprised, since it also happened to last year’s title as well, it still made some less than thrilled. Well, the publisher is promising fixes going forward.

On the official Twitter, the publisher took to actually apologizing for the ad, saying they understood it impacting players in negative ways and that they were not meant to play as part of the pre-game introduction, and said this would be fixed in future episodes. Of course, to play the cynic, what they mean here by fixed could be a variety of things, not just that the ads will be removed. Most likely, it’ll just be implemented in the way it was originally intended. Of course, we won’t know until more details come out.

NBA 2K21 is available now on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, PC and Stadia. The game is also launching alongside the PS5, Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S, and you can check out more details on those versions of the game through here.
