Lots going on in the 2K world today, the latest of which is in regards to NBA 2K22 dual entitlement. A question many gamers had coming into NBA 2K22 is how dual entitlement will work this year, Take-Two shared the details on this via its website.
How NBA 2K22 Cross-Gen Dual Entitlement Bundle works
This is how the 2K publisher laid out dual entitlement in this years game:
“Players that purchase the Cross-Gen Digital Bundle will receive both versions of NBA 2K22 across the PlayStation or Xbox console family. So using Sony PlayStation as an example, you will receive both the PlayStation 4 version and PlayStation 5 version of NBA 2K22, which remain different products.”
Something to be noted is that the Cross-Gen Dual Entitlement bundle is exclusively digital. Last year, if you purchased NBA 2K21 on PS4 you would have to pay for the full price for a PS5 upgrade. That meant some 2K players spent upwards of $130, rather than paying the $10 difference in price between generations. This is something that Electronic Arts offered for Madden and FIFA.
NBA 2K22 releases globally September 10, 2021. In addition to the bundle, Take-Two’s leading basketball sim releases in a Standard Edition and 75th Anniversary Edition. A next-gen exclusive WNBA 25th Anniversary version drops as well with Chicago Sky star Candace Parker gracing the front.
It’s been eerily quiet as far as NBA 2K22 news goes but it appears that will change shortly. With just a couple months to go until launch, we should be getting our first looks at the game in the very near future.
