NBA 2K17 Online Support Ending December 31st

Cover Player Paul George in NBA 2K17

As you may or may not already know, online support for NBA 2K17 is ending on December 31st, 2018. Once the servers are shut down, we’ll no longer have access to shared rosters and Draft Classes, MyLEAGUE Online, MyTEAM, Play Now Online, or any other online components. Virtual Currency purchases will also be unavailable, though MyCAREER will still be playable using an offline currency and more limited functionality.

Given that the NBA 2K17 server shutdown will be taking place within a week or so, it would be a wise idea to download any and all community content as soon as possible. To that end, if you have any recommendations for rosters, Draft Classes, or other shared content for NBA 2K17, feel free to post them in the comments section below, or in this topic in the NLSC Forum.

Following the controversy when the NBA 2K14 servers were shut down, 2K Sports extended support for all of their titles to 27 months. This has ensured that every NBA 2K game will receive online support for two full seasons, plus an additional three months. Barring a further change in policy, online support for NBA 2K18 will cease on December 31st, 2019.

This is why current gen is useless for modding community at some point. Even when 2k12 2k13 k14 severs were down, we are still able to put modded rosters. Current gen is dying together with server shut down.

I am officially quitting 2K forever. The game is only a couple years old and you’re shutting down the servers to force people into buying the newer version that are worse than their predecessors. So, for that I say “f” you 2K; for making a decent b-ball game a hunk of garbage over night by stripping away the innovative parts of a game because you’re not creative enough to build something awesome year over year. “F” you for getting us to invest time and money into creating our characters only for you to come along and rip away their personality we’ve created over the past 2 years. I from today forward and 50 year old die hard gamer that will go out and buy a couch coop NES before I ever shell out any money to a greedy company like 2K that steals from their customers. If this is how you’re going to run your business your games should come with an expected expiration date for online content otherwise how is this even fair or legal. It’s legal because they hide all this fine print crap in the user agreement. Well “F” you for that ish too. Deceptive back alley whores.
