Ahead of its anticipated release next month, 2K and developer Visual Concepts announced NBA 2K21 will receive a demo for current-gen consoles next week. Although the title is also slated to arrive on PC and Google Stadia in September, the demo will only be available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. The titles are also expected to arrive on next-gen consoles like Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5. But since the consoles have yet to arrive, those games don’t even have a release date.
Visual Concepts also detailed a series of improvements coming to the title as well, which include an upgrade for Pro Stick Shooting, improved motion styles, overhauled dribble mechanics, 50 new Size-Up animations, and the removal of Quick Draw in favor of the release speed in Jump Shot Creator.
The NBA 2K21 demo will be available on August 24 ahead of the title’s official release on September 4. PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X versions are also announced, however, neither of them has a definitive release date as of yet.
