A week before its scheduled release date of May 22, NBA Playgrounds 2 was abruptly delayed. Now, we may know the reason why.
Developer Saber Interactive has entered a publishing agreement with 2K Sports, according to reports.
As a result of this partnership, the game will be rebranded as NBA 2K Playgrounds 2 and will release this fall.
Last year’s NBA Playgrounds was a fun arcade basketball title reminiscent of NBA Jam, although it lacked depth and polish. You can read our review of the game here. It sold about a million units, which caught the attention of 2K Sports.
The sequel will now have “a bit of added NBA 2K flair” and new gameplay components that will be showcased in the coming weeks. Saber had already planned to add a single-player season mode and online ranked matches to NBA Playgrounds 2.
NBA 2K Playgrounds 2 will be available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC this fall.
