NBA 2K22 Update 1.09 Available Now, Patch Notes Revealed

The latest update for NBA 2K22 has gone live today on both current-generation and last-generation platforms. As a whole, this update, which is version 1.09, is the first one that has come to NBA 2K22 in 2022. And while the patch is largely focused on providing a number of visual overhauls to various players in the game, it also happens to make one very notable gameplay tweak. 

The big gameplay change that has now arrived in this NBA 2K22 update involves steals. Starting now, Visual Concepts has made an alteration that requires players to press the steal button if they actually want to intercept a pass. This is something that previously wasn't required in order to steal the ball, but now, it's something players will have to get used to if they haven't already been doing it. 

As for the other big changes in this NBA 2K22 update, there isn't very much of note. Visual Concepts also resolved a number of bugs and lingering problems that have been present in MyCareer and MyTeam. In addition, it also made stability improvements to the City and Pro-Am sections of the game. This definitely isn't the biggest patch that NBA 2K22 has ever received, but it's a solid way to start off the new year. 

As mentioned, this new update for NBA 2K22 is available to download right now across PlayStation, Xbox, PC, and Nintendo Switch. Conversely, if you would like to check out the full patch notes for this update, you can find them below.
