POBA 2K16 is the codename for the video game add-on by Luis TV iLaro! and 2K Sports for POBA 2K15. It is not considered a major release in the POBA 2K franchise and was released on January 5, 2016. It was downloadable as an add-on update for POBA 2K15 on all capable consoles. The cover art was created by TheJasbre202.

History

During the making of the first POBA 2K game, the title was originally going to be POBA 2K16 like most standard sports video games. However to avoid confusion, the name was changed to POBA 2K15. The critical mistake was seen and to avoid the naming loophole scheme (2K17 in 2016, 2K18 in 2017), the add-on, POBA 2K16 was created.

Game Mode Updates

MyPark (New)

A new online park game mode was added to the game, based on the NBA 2K game mode. It was praised for it's smooth gameplay and servers.

MyCareer (Updated)

Previously, the feature of playing for the NBA Jammers was possible via trade but not through the draft, however even that functionality was removed in this add-on.
