2K says that the unskippable ads included in were implemented in a way that the publisher"did not intend," and that the error"will be fixed." In an overview on Twitter, the business addressed backlash to how adverts were contained in its latest release. Before this week, players observed that an unskippable advert for your Oculus Quest 2 ahead of an in-game video. That ad appeared to operate during a loading screen, but was the exact same length even when running from an SSD on a PC (via Stevivor). Participants hailed 2K for the advert, with many imagining that it had been looking in a full-priced title.
In reaction, 2K reminded players who adverts"have been incorporated into 2KTV sections" for a couple of years, but said that"yesterday 2KTV advertisement placement influenced our players' experience in a way we did not intend, as these ads are not intended to run as part of their pre-game launch" As a result, the problem"will be fixed in future episodes," although there is no word on exactly when the change will be implemented. Crucially, it doesn't sound like the adverts will actually be going away. 2K points out that they've been in place for a little while already, and that the issue here appears to be where the advertisement showed up, not the fact that it was there in the first place. Hopefully the placements will probably be subtle in the future, but it appears that in-game ads are set to be part of the NBA 2K games for a while yet.
