The soundtrack for NBA 2K22 will be unlike any other NBA 2K soundtrack in the past, as it will adapt in real-time with new hit songs.
NBA 2K22 announced Wednesday that it will have a new soundtrack discovery feature, which will update regularly under the new “seasons” feature for the game.
- The season's feature, which debuted in the NBA 2K21 MyTeam mode, will overtake the entire game, with several game modes changing throughout the year to fit a theme of the season.
Per NBA 2K, the soundtrack will update in real-time as new music will be added to the soundtrack on the first Friday of every new season for the game. These “First Fridays” will allow people to hear newly released songs added to the game.
