Despite previously announcing that the NBA 2K11 servers would be shutting down as early as November 16th, 2K Sports has now confirmed that they plan on continuing online services for NBA 2K11 through to April 2012.
The change of plans is not altogether surprising given the difficulties that several users have encountered with NBA 2K12’s online modes so far. To date, 2K Sports have released two titles updates for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of NBA 2K12 in an attempt to rectify the various issues with online play including disconnections, problems with win/loss tracking and long waiting times when trying to find an opponent.
2K Sports’ Community Manager Ronnie 2K has posted the following on the official NBA 2K11 forums:
Just wanted to let you know that the servers for 2K11 will be shutting down in the next few weeks, and could happen as early as 11/16. Keep this in mind when completing your achievements, etc. Thank you in advance.
Certainly a shame for anyone who hasn’t upgraded to NBA 2K12. Despite the bad news, remember you can preserve your favorite 2K11 Share rosters and slider sets by uploading them to our Download Database.
Vl@d Zola Jr. has released v2.3 of REDitor II for NBA 2K11 and NBA 2K10, the final release before NBA 2K12 comes out. The latest version adds some new fields for the NBA 2K11 Xbox 360 roster tables, adds the ability to use Association and My Player files from the Xbox 360 version with the Roster Exchanger and fixed a glitch which caused all names to be blanked on rare occasions.
You can get the latest version here in our Downloads database. Be sure to check out Vl@d’s release thread for REDitor II here in the NBA 2K11 section of the NLSC Forum for support and additional release notes.
In preparation for NBA 2K12’s release, we’ve expanded the NBA 2K12 section of the NLSC Forum to include our standard subsections for the modding community: Patching Help & Requests, Releases & Previews, Total Conversions and Tutorials. All other topics of discussion belong in the main NBA 2K12 section. We’ve also moved our NBA 2K11 section to the Previous Games category, retaining all of its subsections.
We’ve also made a small change to user profiles to reflect our new focus on basketball video games and not just NBA Live. The “Favourite NBA Live(s)” field is now “Favourite Basketball Video Games”, so for all those who like to list that kind of info in their Forum profile, you may now want to update it accordingly.
Updated for this coming season, the latest version of the NCAA mod for NBA 2K11 PC has been released.
