How to Get the Latest NBA 2K23 Update on All Platforms

Depending on the platform you’re playing on, the steps to update NBA 2K23 will differ slightly. We’ve outlined the steps you’ll need to take on each platform below.


  1. Go to ‘My Games & Apps’ from your home screen.
  2. Scroll down to ‘Manage’ on the left-hand side menu.
  3. Go to ‘Updates’
  4. Select ‘Update All’
  5. You can then check the status of the update by going to the ’Queue’ option within ‘Manage.’

It’s worth noting that the above steps will only work if there’s actually an update available for NBA 2K23. If you check the Updates section and NBA 2K23 isn’t listed, you’re already running the latest version of the game.

  2. Press the ‘Options’ button on your controller.
  3. Scroll down and select the ‘Check for Update’ option.
  4. Any available updates will automatically start downloading and will be installed.

Depending on your ‘Rest Mode’ settings, your PS4/ PS5 might have already downloaded and installed any updates for NBA 2K23 and other games on your SSD in the background.

Nintendo Switch

  1. Select NBA 2K23 on your home screen.
  2. Press the ‘+’ button on the right Joy-Con.

On PC, things are a lot easier. Just go click the ‘Downloads’ option at the very bottom of the Steam client and you’ll be brought to a screen which shows any available updates for all installed games on your PC.
