Comparison of the Andrew Wiggins faces. Note that the "sharpie beard" version is still in NBA 2K21 PC as of this post, as the patch hasn't come through on Steam yet. It is with QA though, so it shouldn't be long.

It's usually the way, coming at least a few days later (though it's submitted to Steam the same time as Microsoft and Sony, so it's out of 2K's hands). On the other hand, sometimes the updates have come through on all three at the same time, and on at least a few (rare) occasions the PC patch has come out first. It just depends how quickly it's approved and pushed through on Steam.

There's also a Patch 1.03 that's come through for PS4 and X1. I'll have to cross-reference with the new notes to see if PC is now a patch behind, or if it ended up getting a combined update.

Here are the details for Patch 1.03. I can confirm that the PC update also includes the fixes listed in 1.02, so it's definitely a combined update. Better late than never and it's not a patch behind, so that's good at least. Hopefully there won't be too many similar delays moving forward, though it looks like it might've been out of 2K's hands. I'm also wondering if the PC-only fix mentioned in 1.03's notes held up 1.02, resulting in the combined update. In any case, the PC version is as up to date as the consoles as of 1.03.
