NBA 2K18 update 1.02 is now available for players on Xbox One and PlayStation 4, but developer 2K is being coy about what it actually fixed. “A new NBA 2K18 patch is now available for Xbox One & PS4,” wrote the developer on Twitter. “More info later.” The official patch notes on PS4 simply read that it “improved the stability of the title in addition to a number of general improvements to the user experience.”

There’s over four gigabytes worth of patch for players to download, and while 2K hasn’t fully detailed the patch yet, it’s supposed to fix a nasty bug that is impacting Xbox One owners. This bug deleted players’ MyCareer mode characters, and lost all of their clothing, animations and player badges they had unlocked. We’ll have more on the update’s specifics once they come in.
For those that were impacted with the bug (which appears to only be on Xbox One for the moment), 2K listed the following info on their support site:
