We’ve finally gotten an official release date for NBA 2K21, and we couldn’t be more excited!

The game is set to arrive on 4 September 2020, and you can now officially guarantee your copy, by pre-ordering now.

This year’s NBA 2K game will be changing things up with the usual editions. It offers the Standard Edition with Damian Lillard and Zion Williamson on the covers for current and next gen consoles respectively, and the Mamba Forever Edition honoring Kobe Bryant on the cover.

Let’s go over how to pre-order the game and where to do it!

Next-Gen Pre-order

If you’re looking to play NBA 2K21 on Next-Gen consoles but don’t want to pay for the Mamba Forever Edition, then you can pre-order your Next-Gen copy below:

Carry over Progress to Next-Gen

NBA 2K21 will feature MyTEAM Cross-Progression and a Shared VC Wallet within the same console family (PS4 to PS5, Xbox One to Xbox Series X).

This means that if you pre-order the Mamba Forever Edition on current-gen, any MyTeam bonus/progress will carry over to your new console.

This is unfortunately not the Dual Entitlement system many were hoping for, which will allow players to get a free next-gen upgrade for Madden 21 and FIFA 21 after purchasing current-gen versions of the game.

But it’s backed by NBA 2K21 being developed specifically with next gen consoles in mind for features and more.
