Among the chief complaints leveled at NBA 2K20 are a veritable litany of bugs and problems ranging from botched animations and balance issues to excruciatingly long loading times and the game outright freezing.
Meanwhile, the hashtag #fireronnie2k is also doing the rounds, with “Ronnie” being Ronnie Singh, 2K’s digital marketing director and the man responsible for NBA 2K20’s aggressive marketing strategy.
In tandem, a petition titled “FIRE RONNIE FOR FALSE ADVERTISING” launched earlier today and has amassed more than 15,000 signatures as of Monday afternoon.
Naturally, it’s unlikely that 2K shows Singh the door, but it highlights the length to which angered players will go to voice their disappointment.
NBA 2K20 Patch 1.02 Fixes Pretty Much Nothing
In response, 2K pushed out a new patch for NBA 2K20, but early indicators suggest it has done little to fix the blaring issues despite coming in at a whopping 7 GB for the PlayStation 4 version of the game.
It’s all pretty damning stuff for a franchise that churns out a title every year with only surface-level changes. Bugs that plagued NBA 2K19 are in NBA 2K20. It appears that complacency has crept in on the developer side as each edition guarantees massive sales due to a loyal legion of fans. Why put in the effort when people buy the game regardless?
