NBA 2K22 – what is it?

The NBA series is a long-running franchise of basketball games.

They fall under the umbrella of simulation games, because they try to be as realistic as possible.

Latest in the series is NBA 2K21, but NBA 2K22 is right around the corner.

And if the name didn’t give you a hint, they come out yearly.

The games are based on the USA’s National Basketball Association, and feature real sports stars.

NBA 2K22 release date – when is NBA 2K22 out?

NBA 2K22 is the next major entry to the franchise.

It’s coming out on Friday, September 10, 2021 – in plenty of time for Christmas.

No plans for an NBA 2K22 early access have been announced.

But an NBA 2K21 demo was available to play last year, the week before the game came out.

A similar strategy could be used for this year’s release.

NBA 2K22 news – what’s the latest?

We have some details on NBA 2K22, though not loads.

The game’s cover star is Luka Dončić, a Slovenian pro who plays for the Dallas Mavericks.

You’ll be able to get the game on the following platforms:

  • PlayStation 5
  • Xbox Series X
  • Xbox Series S
  • PlayStation 4 Pro
  • PlayStation 4
  • Xbox One X
  • Xbox One
  • Nintendo Switch
  • PC (via Steam)

There are three different editions of the game: Standard, Cross-Gen Digital Bundle, and NBA 75th Anniversary Edition.

If you buy the Cross-Gen bundle, you get both versions of NBA 2K22 across PlayStation or Xbox.

So you’d get the PS4 and PS5 versions if you bought the PlayStation edition.

Sadly, there’s no cross-progression or cross play between different consoles or PC.

But you will retain cross-progression within the same console family – like between PS4 and PS5.
