Google is fixing a Stadia "bug" where 'NBA 2K20' downloaded a game update.



The unusual issue - which was spotted by redditor 121910 - shouldn't have happened on the streaming platform, although the user admitted the update only took one or two minutes to complete and the game itself worked fine.

Grace from Google responded on the site, writing: "Thanks for bringing this to our attention.

"This is a bug within the game that's showing an unintended screen. We're working with the developer on this, and I'll report back once there's an updated."

As promised, she later explained to gamers that "another update" was coming as Google continued to work with developer Visual Concepts to fix the problem.

She added: "We're continuing to work diligently with the developer on this matter. We're looking to have another update for you all after the Thanksgiving holiday.

"In the meantime, NBA 2K will play correctly after a brief update. Thanks for your patience!"

Meanwhile, Digital Foundry boss RIch Leadbetter has weighed in on the situation, and he admitted the bug was "weird" considering the platform it's on.

He told Eurogamer: "My best guess here would be that the game code on the server is likely out of date, and that there's a mechanism in-place within the game to add updates.

"What's weird is why there should be any such mechanism at all - one of the key advantages of cloud gaming systems is that title updates are carried out at the server level without ever bothering the user. "That's not happening here for some reason, but I'd expect this to be fixed pretty quickly."
