NBA 2K21 unskippable ads"will be repaired", says 2K from Dingbest's blog

2K says the unskippable ads included in NBA 2K were executed in a way the publisher"didn't mean," and the error"will be fixed." In a statement on Twitter, the business addressed backlash into NBA MT Coins the way commercials were contained in its most recent release. Before this week, players noticed an unskippable advert for the Oculus Quest 2 ahead of an in-game video. That ad seemed to operate during a loading screen, but has been the same length even when running with an SSD to a PC (via Stevivor). Participants hailed 2K for the ad, with many imagining it was appearing at a full-priced title.

In reaction, 2K reminded players that adverts"have been integrated into 2KTV segments" for a couple of years, but said that"yesterday 2KTV advertisement placement influenced our players' expertise in a way we did not intend, because these ads are not meant to run within their pre-game launch" As a result, the problem"will be repaired in future episodes," although there's no word on exactly when the change is going to be implemented. It doesn't sound like the ads will truly be going away. 2K points out that they've been in place for a while already, and that the problem here seems to be where the advertisement showed up, not the fact that it was there in the first place. Hopefully the placements will be more subtle later on, but it appears that in-game ads are set to become part of the NBA 2K games for a while yet.

That functionality seems like its worthy of a Pink Diamond, at least. Also, the day after Jordan registered the triple-double from Buy 2K21 MT the Warriors, he also scored his second-most points in one regular-season game against a rookie Shaquille O'Neal, former Bulls head coach Scott Skiles and the Orlando Magic. On the second half of a yearlong, Jordan had 64 points, but the Bulls dropped the game in 128-124.
