NBA 2K21 Confirmed As Launch Title for PS5 & Xbox Series X/S

The basketball simulation NBA 2K21 for the PS5 and the Xbox Series X/S was announced quite a while ago. As 2K Games announced, the two next-generation consoles will be awarded the title just in time for their launch.

One of the first third-party titles announced for the new generation consoles in recent months was NBA 2K21.

As 2K Games announced today, NBA 2K21 will be a launch title for the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, and Xbox Series S. While the game will be supplied on the next-generation Xbox on November 10, 2020, the PS5 version will appear in time for the local launch of the PlayStation 5 on November 19, 2020, in European countries.

As has already been admitted, the standard version of NBA 2K21 on the Xbox One or the PlayStation 4 does not allow a free upgrade to the respective next generation. In order to then switch to the next-gen version, the more expensive Mamba Edition must be purchased. In addition, the price of NBA 2K21 on the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S will rise by 10 dollars then.

A price increase that 2K Games justified with the increased development effort. “We deliver a much, much bigger game for $60 or $70 than we delivered for $60 10 years ago. The opportunity to spend money online is completely optional, and it’s not a free-to-play title. It’s a complete, incredibly robust experience even if you never spend another penny after your initial purchase,” they said.
