Servers Shutting Down December 31st; Suggest Rosters To Download!

Postby Andrew on Sat Dec 03, 2022 4:17 pm

2K recently posted a reminder that the NBA 2K21 servers will be shutting down on December 31st, 2022. The game will also be pulled from digital storefronts at that time, though anyone who owns the game will still be able to redownload it and play the offline modes afterwards.

A basic overview of what will be lost is as follows:

  • Play Now Online, H2H games with friends, etc
  • MyTEAM
  • MyCAREER (the offline version of the mode hasn't existed since NBA 2K19)
  • All unused Virtual Currency and MT (there's no option to transfer an unused balance to NBA 2K22 or NBA 2K23, as nice as that would be)
  • In-Game Roster Sharing
  • Official Rosters (if you uninstall and reinstall post-server shutdown)

With that in mind, it would be a good idea to wrap up any business with NBA 2K21 ASAP. Finish what you can, spend the in-game currency if you want, and download any rosters. We have ways of sharing rosters offline for the PC version of NBA 2K21, but console gamers are unfortunately out of luck there. Of course, it's still worth grabbing any rosters on PC before the shutdown, as the in-game sharing functionality is certainly more convenient.

Feel free to share any suggestions for rosters that others should download before the server shutdown!

If you install an NBA 2K game after its servers have been shutdown, do you get all the patch updates that were issued for the game? Or do you only get the Day 1 initial version of the game?

The patches that come through the dashboard/Steam client will still be downloaded automatically, so in that regard it’ll always be the final version. However, any in-game updates – roster updates, tuning fixes, etc – aren’t available once the servers are shut down. So, it’ll be kind of updated as far as getting anything that was added/altered by the official patches/title updates, but content like rosters will be the same as launch.
