NBA 2K22 is gearing up to bring the long standing basketball title into a new age this year on next gen consoles, but they can't stop delivering on PC.

Although the game keeps growing on next gen, here's all there is to know about NBA 2K22 on PC

NBA 2K22 Reveal Trailer

At the moment, details about NBA 2K22 are scarce, but we should know more in the next few months when the game is officially announced.

SNEAK PEAK: Fans could get their first glance at NBA 2K22 after E3 2021 in a few weeks

In all likelihood, we'll get our first look at NBA 2K22 when the reveal trailer drops. In the past, the reveal trailer has come out in June so we could see it very soon.

It's quite possible we see the reveal trailer by the time E3 2021 wraps up. It seems likely 2K Sports will have a presence at the event this year. E3 will begin on Saturday, June 12, and go until Tuesday, June 15, so a reveal could come out around that time.

Either way, we should get a sneak peak at NBA 2K22 in the next month.


Release Date on PC

For now, there isn't a set release date for NBA 2K22 on PC, but we can make a pretty good guess by using some context clues.

NBA 2K21 was released on current gen before it hit next gen, but we'll probably see NBA 2K22 dropped on all platforms at the same time.

Based on previous released dates for NBA 2K, it's likely we'll see NBA 2K22 on PC in the first two weeks of September. We can expect the game to hit the shelves sometime from September 3, 2021 to September 10, 2021.

Price on PC

As next gen versions of the title get upgraded graphics and new game modes like The City, current gen should stay put at its usual price.

NBA 2K22 will probably cost $70 on next gen platforms, but PC and other current gen fans can expect the typical $60 price.

SAME PRICE: NBA 2K22 will probably cost the same as it does every year

For special editions, NBA 2K22 on PC will likely cost a lot more. Users can count on those versions costing between $85 and $99 in total.


NBA 2K22 Pre Order

NBA 2K22 on PC can't be pre ordered yet, and that's not going to change for at least a few weeks.

NBA 2K21's pre orders went live on July 2, 2020, but that was after the cover athlete was already chosen. It will likely be earlier this year because there won't be delays due to the pandemic.

We still don't know the cover athlete for NBA 2K22, but pre orders will likely go up after E3 2021 is finished. For more on NBA 2K22 pre orders, click here.

Current Gen Game Modes

Sadly, players probably won't see new next gen game modes like The City land on current gen platforms.

But, we could see NBA 2K22 try to improve existing modes like MyTEAM or MyPLAYER to compensate for not adding new game modes.

Since most people still don't have Xbox Series X|S and PS5, NBA 2K22 will likely have way more players on current gen, so there's no way they completely neglect upgrading the current gen experience.
