    NBA 2K17 continues to invest heavily in improving their three franchise modes (MyGM, MyLeague, and MyLeague Online) as evidenced it their latest developer blog. Here are some of the noteworthy additions & changes:

    MyLeague Online - The online league component will now extend beyond just one season and feature players improving and declining as the years progress along with the ability to import draft classes. Instead of utilizing contracts and money to build a roster, MLO focuses on players each having their own number of 'Keeper' years. Users will keep a select number of players each year with others becoming free agents. In the offseason users will draft between free agents and rookies to flesh out their roster.

    Playoffs - A new mode, this allows users to create their own standalone 16-team post-season mode from among modern, classic, & Euroleague teams.

    MyLeague Start Today - Another new mode/option, once the season starts users will be able to begin MyLeague at that exact point in the season, beginning with team records, stats, etc. as of that date.

    For full details on more features and options added (including advanced rotations, jersey retirements, and more), continue on to read the lengthy blog from NBA 2K's Erick Boenisch. ...

    NBA 2K17 keeps the foot on the gas pedal when it comes to gameplay improvements as noted in a gameplay blog from Producer Mike Wang.

    This year the primary focus of gameplay changes center on making the skill(s) of the user matter more. Except for dunks, all shots now have a timing mechanism tied to them. Along with this, the shot meter has also been revamped. Users who prefer the shot button can default to that instead of the shot stick. Ball-handling and steals have also been improved along with post-play and improved physicality.

    These changes have all been made with the goal of rewarding the player with the better user skills, however through options (such as difficulty and settings) and an improved 2KU (in-game tutorial), players of all skill sets can play the game how they want and improve.

In The Prelude, users will be able to created their MyPlayer and begin the MyCareer experience playing through college. The trailer for the mode seemingly suggests the mode will end with the user getting an invite to play (or tryout) for Team USA, perhaps aiming to be the impetus for users to buy the full retail version of the game and continue the mode, with the goal of representing the United States. It remains to be seen how detailed or fleshed out the international competition aspects will be, though some national squads have been added to the game.

    Available colleges in NBA 2K17 are: Kansas, Georgetown, Arizona, Louisville, UConn, Illinois, Oklahoma, Georgia Tech, Michigan State, and Wake Forest.

    The Prelude is a similar pre-release downloadable experience to NBA 2K10's Draft Combine that allowed users to create a prospect and compete to improve their draft status. With the MyNBA2K mobile app releasing on September 8, users can scan their face for inclusion into The Prelude the next day.

    Polygon's Owen Good was able to recently go hands-on with NASCAR Heat Evolution.

    One of the most noteworthy areas of focus by Good addressed improved CPU driver AI including adaptive AI. Computer controlled competitors will no longer race on rails but rather will adjust to the user's skill level.
