The NBA 2K22 Xbox Series X shutting off bug that was seemingly fixed, as announced by Xbox Support Thursday, is reportedly still an glaring issue for plenty of players.

A problem that has seemingly been a major problem for plenty of Xbox Series X players on NBA 2K21, Madden and FIFA as well, it still remains unclear what exactly the issue stems from.

On Sept. 23, Xbox Support tweeted that after nine days of working on a fix for the issue, Series X players should "no longer see their consoles unexpectedly power off or quit to home while playing NBA 2K22."

Unfortunately, however, upon perusing the Twitter replies and r/NBA2K Subreddit, it appears the fix hasn't been the solution, as plenty of Series X players are still reporting that they are experiencing random shutdowns while trying to play the title.

Whether it's in MyTeam, The Old Gym or the Brickley Gym in MyCareer, Xbox Series X players are still reporting at the time of writing that their consoles continue to power off while trying to play NBA 2K22.

As alluded to earlier, although some speculate that the issue stems from the Series X overheating during online games, what remains clear is that the problem must be fixed on 2K and Xbox's side of things.

NBA 2K22 Next Gen just had an update that appears to have fixed the common lag outs and error codes in the game's MyCareer mode. Although this was much-needed step in the right direction, this issue needs to be addressed ASAP.
