Earlier this week we highlighted the somewhat painful wait for a major update of NBA Playgrounds on Nintendo Switch. It launched without online play which was promised for 'a few days' after launch, but over two weeks after release the key feature is still absent. Developer Saber Interactive has been acknowledging the frustration of fans on social media, and now seems keen to make amends.

The developer is teasing a 'huge announcement' for 1st June, with the implication being that the studio could offer something extra to Switch owners as recompense for the long wait for online play.

We'd expect a go-ahead for online play as a minimum, but it'll be interesting to see what other goodies are thrown in. We'll keep an eye out for the announcement on Thursday.
