Despite a large patch that was delivered to NBA 2k14 on PlaytStation 4 and Xbox One before Christmas, the game is still encountering server problems. According to 2K's Ronnie 2K, the devs are hard at work trying to get the game to run properly.

Unfortunately, there aren't many official details about what is being done or what is happening, outside of a recent tweet from Ronnie 2K.

The recent patch, which was made available on December 19, addressed a huge list of problems that players had been encountering. You can see the full list of patch notes here. A search on twitter for the words 'NBA 2k14' and 'server' shows a number of recent tweets from players lamenting their problems with the game's online functionality.

Despite the game's server issues, NBA 2K14 is still the best NBA game on the market. You can read our review here.

Our Take
NBA 2k14's online issues are disappointing, especially considering how integral the online functionality is to many aspects of the game. Unfamiliarity with new hardware can certainly be blamed for some of the game's issues, but the game has been out for more than a month, and I can imagine the disappointment of players who aren't able to take full advantage of their new Christmas present consoles.
