NBA 2K16 Update Patch 4 Releasing Later This Week

by Damian Seeto


The fourth update patch for NBA 2K16 will be releasing later this week as announced by 2K Sports.

The official NBA 2K16 Twitter page announced: “ Patch 4 to drop within the next 72 hours on PlayStation 4 (for sure… & likely PC/XB1 as well). Patch notes to follow upon release

Community Manager for NBA 2K, Chris Manning, posted on his own Twitter page a few more details on the upcoming patch. Notes should be provided when it’s officially out, but Manning addressed some of the areas they are working on.

He tweeted:Patch 4 will address couch co-op bug & other game-play tweaks based off of user feedback (lobs/TOs). Full notes w/ patch. Keep you updated.”

Since 2K Sports mentioned NBA 2K16’s update patch will come in three day’s time, it’s possible it will arrive on Friday. The PS4 will get the update patch first. After that, the PC and Xbox One platforms will follow shortly after.

We’ll let you guys know when the patch drops and will also provide you with all the notes that come with it as well. NBA 2K16 has not been as glitchy as other games, but there are areas that need improving.

Update: Patch notes have been released via Facebook
