The team behind NBA 2K Playgrounds 2 won’t be abandoning the game anytime soon. As relayed by lead producer Tobias Heussner, the team has a lot of additions lined up for the future.

Heussner said, “we’re planning to add some existing features to the game as well as more playgrounds as we did with the Halloween DLC. Also, more NBA players will be made available to our community. A lot more DLC is coming!”

Publisher 2K Sports has confirmed that online play in their arcade style basketball title NBA 2K Playgrounds 2 will be disabled for the next few hours in order to implement the game’s first patch on Switch.

During this time, offline play will still be available and functional. 2K Sports has stated that they will update once again when the maintenance period is finished.

2K and Saber Interactive intend to support NBA 2K Playgrounds 2 for a lengthy period. Today, “the first of many planned free DLCs” has been revealed.

The new DLC adds a Halloween playground, a variety of Halloween-themed outfits through Swag Pack unlocks, the new lottery pick called the Ankle Breaker, and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar as a playable character.

NBA 2K Playgrounds 2 is out now on Switch. Get a look at close to an hour of footage in the video below.

2K Sports and Saber Interactive has shared a short trailer to highlight today’s launch of NBA 2K Playgrounds 2. Watch it below.

Saber Interactive essentially released NBA Playgrounds itself last year. But this year, the company teamed up with 2K for NBA 2K Playgrounds 2. It’s more than just a slight rebrand and publishing deal, as 2K actually provided assistance to improve the game.

After noticing that NBA Playgrounds sold one million copies, 2K wanted to get involved. Saber CEO Matthew Karch told Polygon that Saber already “had a solid game”, but 2K gave “very substantial” contributions to the project. Karch estimates that “20 percent of the improvements to the game have taken place over the last four to five months of development with those guys.”

2K announced today that NBA 2K Playgrounds 2 will be available starting October 26. The game is due out physically and digitally starting October 16.
