NBA 2K22: How To Fix Crashing Issues On Xbox Series X|S

Crashing Problems

Some fans are having trouble booting NBA 2K22 up, with the application immediately closing before starting a game. It seems as though the obstacle is only occurring for Xbox Series X and S players.


The source of the dispute seems to be rooted in 2K22's menu, which is seemingly making the game crash and in turn, closing the game.

The Solution

To work around the issue, players have found this quick fix to work:

  • Start NBA 2K22
  • Select 'My Career' from the main menu of the game
  • Continuously spam and press the 'up' button on the D-Pad.

This reportedly stops the menu from loading further and takes players directly to the Park Arena. Afterwards, the rest of the game will function as normal.

Status On Patches

Developer, Visual Concepts has yet to acknowledge the problem. Because of this, no official patch has been planned for release. We will update you on any progress.
