The release date for NBA 2K21 is September 4, 2020. However, you can pre-order the game now to get it early.
The 21st installment in the NBA 2K franchise is right around the corner. NBA 2K21 is currently set to release on September 4th, 2020, for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Google Stadia, and Microsoft Windows. The game will also be available on the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X when those consoles launch later this year.
What We Know So Far
The latest installment in the NBA 2K franchise is right around the corner. NBA 2K21 is set to release on September 4, 2020, for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Google Stadia, and Microsoft Windows. The game will feature a number of new gameplay mechanics, as well as an updated MyCareer mode.
The most recent entry in the NBA 2K series, NBA 2K20, was released on September 6, 2019. Given that pattern, it’s safe to say that NBA 2K21 will also be released in September 2020. However, an exact release date has not yet been announced.
NBA 2K21 is shaping up to be an exciting game for basketball fans. The game will feature updated rosters and new game modes, as well as improved graphics and gameplay. So far, the game has only been announced for release on current-generation consoles, but it is likely that it will also be released on next-generation consoles when they launch in November 2020.
We know that NBA 2K21 will be released on Xbox Series X, PlayStation 5, Google Stadia, and Windows PC. It’s currently unclear if there will be cross-platform play or not. The game will likely be a launch title for the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5.
A number of retailers have NBA 2K21 up for pre-order on current-gen consoles,and they all have the game releasing on September 4. That’s just a week before the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X launch,so it would make sense for 2K to want its game on store shelves alongside its next-gen systems. The game is also available to pre-order digitally on the PlayStation Store and Microsoft Store.
We predict that NBA 2K21 will come out on September 8, 2020. This is based on the release schedule of the previous NBA 2K games. NBA 2K21 is the 22nd installment of the NBA 2K series and is being developed by Visual Concepts. The game will be published by 2K Games.
Based on Previous Releases
2K Games has not yet announced when NBA 2K21 will be released, but based on the timetable of previous games in the series, it’s safe to say that the game will come out in late 2020.
NBA 2K20 was released on September 6, 2019, so it’s likely that NBA 2K21 will also be released in early September 2020. However, due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, it’s possible that the release date could be delayed by a few weeks or months.
Based on Industry Trends
It is safe to say that the release date for NBA 2K21 will be in September or early October of 2020. This is based on the release schedule of the previous installments of the game. NBA 2K17 was released on September 20, 2016, NBA 2K18 was released on September 19, 2017, NBA 2K19 was released on September 11, 2018, and NBA 2K20 was released on September 6, 2019. As you can see, there is a pattern of the game being released towards the beginning of Fall.
There has also been some news about the game that seems to indicate that it will have a similar release window. In February of 2020, it was announced that Zion Williamson would be the cover athlete for the Standard Edition of NBA 2K21. This would make sense timing wise as Zion Williamson’s rookie season with the Pelicans ended in late March due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Although there has been no official announcement from 2K Games about the release date for NBA 2K21, it seems likely that the game will come out in September or early October based on past release patterns and recent news announcements.
Based on the information that is currently available, it seems that NBA 2K21 will most likely be released in late September or early October 2020. However, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, there is a possibility that the release date could be delayed. We will continue to update this article as more information becomes available.
