Like many of the annual sports titles, NBA 2K21 will be coming to the next generation of consoles. In fact, that version made quite the splash of controversy due to the lack of upgrade options as well as the fact that it’ll cost more than the current gen versions. But as it stands, if you want to get on that virtual basketball court as of now, you’ll have to stick to current gen versions. And now a new update is here to make it feel a bit more familiar for fans. 

One thing that players noticed in 2K21 is that the shooting mechanics were slightly different. One of the changes for this iteration was only using the shoot button for jump shot timing, which is in contrast to how it was before where the stick could also be used. The newest update has a few technical fixes, but the big thing is returning that option for shooting. When you download the update and boot up the game, you’ll have a choice between the old or new scheme. You can read more through here. The patch is live now. 

NBA 2K21 is available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, PC and Stadia. You can read our review for this current version through here. The game is also confirmed to be coming out for PS5 and Xbox Series S and X.
