Posted December 15th, 2015 at 1:00 pm


As far as post-release patches go, NBA 2K16 has now received three of them, with the latest having gone out today on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. The first patch was primarily intended to get Pro-Am working, while the second one had wide reach influencing pretty much every mode in the game with changes based on community feedback.

The new patch delivers a number of fixes to the game, including getting the couch co-op that was broken with the previous update back to being functional, and affects various modes along with some minor tinkering done to gameplay.


Addressed a hang that can occur when editing/applying tattoos in Edit Player.

Resolved a bug where one or more users in a co-op game would lose control of their player at some point during the game.

Fixed a disconnect issue that some users were seeing during online games.

Closed a loophole where the pause timer would stop counting down when sitting in the ‘Report Image’ flow.

Improved the user interface when applying contracts to players in MyTEAM by removing the display of how many contracts the player would have IF the current card was applied.

Fixed a case where the user accepting an online invite would sometimes skip the position selection screen in the way into matchmaking.

Headwear should now properly unequip when attempting to do so from within the MyPARK Apparel section of the store.

The player portrait will now update when a new user is signed in on the main menu via the account picker.

A number of other optimizations and enhancements have been made to improve the user experience.

(PC) Fixed a corruption issue where some users were experiencing hangs, missing art assets, and infinite loads. Please ensure that your virus scanning software (e.g. Avast) whitelists your Steam folder/directory. This is required for new content to properly download and install.


Teammate free throw celebration/interaction behaviors have been corrected.

Slightly tuned down the frequency of ball collisions.

Fixed an issue that led to a temporary loss of user control on possession changes while in the 2K Cam.

Tuned down the frequency of missed alley-oop and putback dunks when open.

Fixed an issue that allowed high rated post players to shoot post fadeaway 3’s at a high percentage.


Fixed a rare issue where the game would hang when Doris Burke interviews your MyPLAYER at the end of the first half and/or at the end of the game.

The correct records and rep levels will now be shown for the players on the MyPARK loading screen.

Corrected the wall and floor art for the San Antonio Spurs theme in MyCOURT.

Fixed a case where some purchased shoes were not properly appearing on the shoe racks in MyCOURT.


Resolved a hang that could occur many, many years into MyGM when entering the offseason.

Generated players will now wear the correct color socks for away games.

Fixed an issue where generated players were getting their free throw animations randomized every offseason.

The Strengths/Weaknesses screen in Team Comparison should now be functioning properly once again.
