It will be playable on PC, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, Google Stadia, and PS4.

There is a silver lining however, for anyone who purchases the game on Xbox One.

Backward Compatibility

One feature that will make an appearance on the Xbox Series X will be backward compatibility.

What this means is that if you purchase the title in Xbox One, you’ll be able to play it on Xbox Series X.

A great option to have in case 2K don’t re-release for next-gen. But what if they do, and you already bought the game?

In short – buy PGA Tour 2K21 on Xbox One, and you’ll automatically have PGA Tour 2K21 on Xbox Series X.
