At the time of writing, if you check Xbox Status through Microsoft's official website, it will tell you that there's limited functionality for NBA 2K22 on the Xbox Series X which was originally reported on September 4th. The official Xbox Support account acknowledged what was going on and that work was being undertaken to address this, however, players replied that they were seeing the same shutdown bug in games like Borderlands 3, FIFA 22 and Call of Duty: Vanguard.
According to Xbox Status, the problem is very close to being solved. Players are still not too happy about how long it's taken, though, and the lack of updates on the progress of the issue.

Of course, these are games with enormous player bases so a lot of people have been affected. Vanguard has had a number of beta weekends throughout September and FIFA 22 has a ten hour trial for those who have EA Play or Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscriptions. Being booted out of your limited time with either of these games is bound to see even the calmest player lose their cool.
Recent rumours claim that the Xbox Series X and Series S will get newer versions of their hardware arrive on the market before 2023. The Series S would get a boost of 50% to its processing speed, according to the scoop, and the prices for the previous Series S would dip as a result. However, Microsoft would compensate for the loss with the newer version of the Series S and the improved version of the Series X.
In any event, fingers crossed that Xbox players of these games will see a resolution soon.
