    2K Sports has faced unprecedented circumstances around the releases of NBA 2K21 on both current and next-gen. The former launched while the previous season was still ongoing and the latter before any offseason transactions would even take place. Now the game is starting to feel a little more like it traditionally would with the completion of the NBA Draft. All the rookies have now been added to their respective teams via roster update. Free agency and more trades are still to come (Chris ...

    2K Sports today unveiled the first trailer for the next-gen (PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X) versions of NBA 2K21. It's just a little over a month now until those consoles release and promotion for the upcoming games will now be picking up. While expectations for the sports games are generally low in the transition - some visual improvements and elimination of load times - 2K21 has the most potential for a significant leap and have promised more from it than EA. Specific improvements to...

    2K Sports has just rolled out a major patch for NBA 2K21 that addresses community feedback across various modes in the game as well as gameplay. Most notable are the dramatic changes made to shooting which have been roundly rejected by consumers and a fix to 2K Share which had not worked at all since release. Putting in a mechanic that changes maybe the most fundamental element of a basketball game without actually telling players about it or how to use it was a huge unforced error on the...

    2K Sports revealed the three different cover athletes for NBA 2K21 this week (Damian Lillard, Zion Williamson, Kobe Bryant) but the more interesting news relates to details on the series' transition to the next-gen systems. NBA 2K21 on the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 will see a price increase to $70. That's the first indication that games across the board may be more expensive next-gen. It would seem unlikely that NBA 2K would be on its own in doing so. Additionally those who buy t...
