NBA 2K21 release date

2K Games announced today the release date and pricing details for both current- and next-generation versions of NBA 2K21. The version of the game for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Windows PC or Google Stadia will feature Damian Lillard on the cover and release on Sept. 4 for $59.99. NBA 2K21 for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X will feature Zion Williamson as the cover athlete and will be available at launch for $69.99.

Yes, the next-generation version of NBA 2K21 will cost $10 more than the current-gen iteration. This could set an important precedent as game makers deal with rising development costs associated with designing for the high performance of next-gen consoles.

Additionally, 2K Games announced NBA 2K21 Mamba Forever Edition for both current- and next-gen consoles. Featuring custom artwork of the late Kobe Bryant on the cover, this version of the game includes bonus content and virtual currency. It will release on perspective consoles on the same date as NBA 2K21.

To give players a better understanding of what NBA 2K21’s multiple versions will include and how they will work across two console generations, 2K Games released the image below:

Those planning to purchase the game for PS4 or Xbox One and then upgrade to a new console once released should be interested in the Mamba Forever Edition of NBA 2K21. Purchasing either the current- or next-gen version of the special edition will give players access to the standard version of NBA 2K21 on the opposite generation. So, purchasing the Mamba Forever edition for PS4 or Xbox One will give players access to the standard edition of NBA 2K21 for PS5 or Xbox Series X. All in-game content such as Virtual Currency, MyTeam cards and cosmetic items will transfer to the next-generation version. However, players who purchase a standard version of NBA 2K21 will not get access to the next-gen version of the game.
