PS5 Xbox Consoles PC Gaming 2K under fire for adding unskippable in-game ads


2K has actually come under fire from NBA 2K21 gamers for including unskippable in-game adverts.

The video listed below from Stevivor reveals an advert for Oculus Quest 2 connected to a pre-game video called MyTeam Season 2, Episode 7. The advert runs as the match is loading, and you cannot edit your team lineup until the advert has run its course.

The adverts struck the video game simply over a month after launch on PC and current-gen consoles, and ahead of the prepared PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X release.

As reported by Stevivor, 2K just recently included unskippable adverts into the full-price basketball sim's pre-game loading screens throughout all platforms.

2K has bad credibility for the monetization of its NBA franchise. In August 2019, the European computer game age-rating organization PEGI stated it was "really mindful" NBA 2K20 got "too close for convenience" to teaching gamers betting after it got a problem about a questionable gambling establishment trailer.

2K had actually launched a trailer for NBA 2K20 on YouTube that highlighted casino-style components in the video game, such as a slots mini-game and a wheel of fortune mini-game.
