The NBA 2K21 is a-comin’ and it will come in first for current-gen platforms: PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch, and Google Stadia on September 4, 2020. This means next-gen system won’t be getting it until Holiday 2020.

The NBA 2K21 coming in for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X will cost $10 more than the version for current generation platforms, since it has to be built all over again from the ground up. The standard PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X versions of NBA 2K21 will be costing $69.99 USD.


Plus, all versions of the NBA 2K21 will be offering a very special ‘Mamba Forever’ Edition designed to honor the late Kobe Bryant and his “lifelong pursuit of victory and legacy in the sport of basketball.” This version will include Kobe on the cover of the Mamba Forever Editions, and the Portland Blazers’ Damian Lillard and New Orleans Pelicans’ Zion Williamson on the covers of the standard versions for both current and next generations, respectively.

The new NBA 2K21 will not be supporting Xbox Smart Delivery or any similar services on their PS5, so don’t expect a free upgrade to next-gen if you do decide to trade in your PS4 or Xbox One to one of the newer platforms. But, if you do get your $99.99 USD Mamba Forever Edition, you will get the next-gen version free, when released. You win some, you lose some.
