Next-Gen Pre-orders

If you're looking to play NBA 2K21 on Next-Gen consoles but don't want to pay for the Mamba Forever Edition, then you can pre-order your Next-Gen copy below:

NEXT-GEN: Zion Williamson is the cover star for Next-Gen

Carry over Progress to Next-Gen

NBA 2K21will feature MyTEAM Cross-Progression and a Shared VC Wallet within the same console family (PS4 to PS5, Xbox One to Xbox Series X).

This means that if you pre-order the Mamba Forever Edition on current-gen, any MyTeam bonus/progress will carry over to your new console.

This is unfortunately not the Dual Entitlement system many were hoping for, which will allow players to get a free next-gen upgrade for Madden 21 and FIFA 21 after purchasing current-gen versions of the game.

But it's backed by NBA 2K21 being developed specifically with next gen consoles in mind for unique features and more.

NBA 2K21 Nintendo Switch Pre-Order
