The NBA 2K21 release date is set for September and retailers are taking pre-orders ahead of the game’s arrival. While some of you might want to buy the game today, others are better off waiting a few more days, or in some cases, waiting until after the game’s release to buy a copy.
2K Games has confirmed a bunch of details including the game’s official release date. NBA 2K21 is headed to Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Windows PC, Google Stadia, and Nintendo Switch on September 4th.

The Xbox Series X lands in November and we expect the PS5 to arrive in and around the same time frame. 2K says the game will land on those platforms sometime before the end of the year which means we should see a release in November or December.
Retailers like Amazon and GameStop are currently selling a few different versions of the game.
There’s a standard version for current-generation platforms that retails for the usual $59.99. There’s also a standard edition for PS5 and Xbox Series X which retails for $69.99.
In addition, there’s the Mamba Forever Edition, a tribute to the late Kobe Bryant, that comes with some bonuses and retails for $99.99 across the board.
