Multiple users are reporting they are not able to play the game at all due to the ongoing server issues. NBA 2K14 is designed so that players cannot play various game modes – including single-player modes – without a connection to the NBA 2K14 servers.
2K Sports said the developers are currently working on the problem and hope to resolve the issue soon.
“Dev continues to work on server concerns. Will update when I know more,” a tweet from 2K’s Ronnie 2K said.
A large patch for NBA 2K14 began rolling out on Dec. 19. The patch aimed to fix many of the in-game issues affecting NBA 2K14 but it has had an unexpected impact on the servers.
Players have taken to Twitter and forums to voice their concerns with the NBA 2K14 servers. Some players have stated they have not been able to play the game for multiple days.
It was concerning that online functionality was such a major factor in NBA 2K14 and the ongoing server problems only exemplify that issue. For a game to have these issues a month after release is startling. The game’s overuse of Virtual Currency has also been a point of concern. It is clear that NBA 2K14 is losing the momentum earned at launch.
