NBA 2K16's MyTeam mode will introduce new Dynamic player cards, whose value and attributes will fluctuate based on their real-world player's performances.
2K Sports announced the new feature at Gamescom. However, executive producer Rob Jones was unable to shed more light on the cards with VideoGamer when asked how often these cards will be updated.
"I'm not quite sure if it's going to be on a day-to-day basis, but I do know that it's going to be fairly regular. And I'm not sure if it's going to be like a weekly thing or not at this point"
Although the values will fluctuate, players will still be unable to trade cards to other players, and only sell these cards back to 2K, Jones also confirmed to VideoGamer.
Dynamic Cards with fluctuating values and stats is an interesting proposition, and one that even EA hasn't tried in its Ultimate Team offerings. It's just a shame that 2K continues to limit the ability to trade cards between players and control the marketplace by being the only buyer. Time will tell if this changes, or if perhaps EA decides the idea of ever-evolving cards is novel enough to adopt into its own card modes.
