Next-Gen NBA 2K21
If you’ve been living under a rock this year (I don’t blame you), NBA 2K21 is now out for Xbox Series X|S and the PlayStation 5. The next-gen version of NBA 2K21 will have exclusive features such as an expanded MyCAREER and the new MyNBA. The next-gen NBA 2K21 MyCAREER will now feature the G-League and even college ball. The Xbox Series X|S version came out on November 10, and the PlayStation 5 version was released on November 12. Both versions feature major graphical improvements while the latter features adaptive DualSense triggers, which simulate player fatigue in-game.
