NBA 2K21 Next-Gen COUNTDOWN: PS5 Release Date, Xbox Series X Release Date, Xbox Series S, New Features, Latest News & more
The 2K title has arrived on current-gen consoles, but some new features are coming when it hits next-gen.
It’s been all action since NBA 2K21 release on current-gen consoles, but many fans are already looking forward to playing the game on next-gen.
With big reveals around the Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and more recently, the PS5 and PS5 Digital Edition, there’s plenty to sort through!
Latest News – PS5 Release Date
Sony’s PS5 Showcase revealed big details about Sony’s next-gen powerhouse console. This included its price, but more importantly, its release date.
With this release date we have a better idea of when we can play NBA 2K21 on PS5.
The PS5 has a staggered release date, though, so certain regions will have access a week earlier.
Xbox Series X Release Date
Both of Microsoft’s powerhouse next-gen consoles will be launching on 10 November, which could give us a hint as to when NBA 2K21 next-gen editions will be playable.
New Next-Gen Features
There is a whole host of reasons to go and pick up NBA 2K21, not least the plethora of new features already available on current-gen consoles!
But we’ve been promised even more massive new features come next-gen, features so important game mode progress won’t carry over from current-gen versions outside of MyTEAM.
With MyPLAYER progress being a huge surprise to not carry over to next-gen consoles, we could see some massive changes in this area come next-gen.
NBA 2K21 Editions
If you’ve not already bought NBA 2K21, and would like to play before the release of next-gen consoles, there are several NBA 2K21 editions you can choose from.
The NBA 2K21 editions are as follows:
- Current-Gen Standard Edition – £59.99/$59.99
- Next-Gen Standard Edition – £64.99/$69.99
- Mamba Forever Edition – £84.99/$99.99
You can read our full buyer’s guide on the benefits of each edition here.
But a basic breakdown is that the Mamba Forever Edition will allow players more interested in playing NBA 2K21 on next-gen consoles to still try the game out now on current-gen.
