Fortunately, players on PS4 will still enjoy current gen pricing as the Standard Edition will be available for just £59.99 / $59.99.


If you're hoping to eventually upgrade to PS5 and wanna save a little money without leaping to the most expensive option, you can get the Cross-Gen Digital Bundle for £74.99 / $79.99, which includes the Standard Edition for both PS4 and PS5.

Finally, you can purchase the 75th Anniversary Edition for £84.99 / $99.99, which has the most significant in-game rewards and also includes the game on both PS4 and PS5.

Current Gen Game Modes

Unfortunately, we probably won't see newly innovated game modes like The City backtrack from next-gen to current-gen.

HANGING ON: They'll have to make up for The City's absence

However, we could see NBA 2K22 try to spice up existing modes like MyTEAM and MyPLAYER in order to make up for the lack of The City.

With supply still limited for PS5 and Xbox Series X|S, NBA 2K22 will likely end up with significantly more players on current-gen, so 2K Sports can't neglect their current-gen improvements.
