We are knee-deep in the fourth quarter of the year. That means next generation consoles and next gen games. 2K announced, via twitter, when we can expect to see next gen NBA 2K21.

For players interested in picking up current and next-gen versions of NBA 2K21, the Mamba Forever Edition provides dual-access. By having the Mamba Forever Edition, a standard copy of NBA 2K21 will be provided for next at no additional cost within the same console family. That means Xbox One users get and Xbox Series X/S version and PS4 to PS5. A user cannot go from Xbox One to PlayStation 5 through this program.

Both PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X versions of the game will be available as launch titles. 2K has also stressed NBA 2K21 for next gen has been built from the ground up. It will feature new additions and improvements only possible on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. More details to come on that later in the year.

Release Dates:

  • Xbox Series X/S: November 10
  • Playstation 5 (in limited regions): November 12
  • PlayStation 5 (All remaining regions): November 19

Additionally, NBA 2K21 will feature MyTEAM Cross-Progression and a Shared VC Wallet for consoles within the same family. MyTEAM Cross-Progression enables all MyTEAM Points, Tokens, cards and progress to be shared between current and next-generation. Similarly, the Shared VC Wallet means earned or purchased VC can be accessed across both current and next-generation consoles.
