Wait for NBA 2K21 Reviews

If you're truly on the fence about upgrading from an older 2K game or trying the series from the first time, you might want to hold off on a pre-order and wait for NBA 2K21 reviews.

We expect 2K to confirm plenty of details this summer. We also expect to see gameplay before the official release date.

That said, critics won't go hands-on with the finished product until much closer to the game's launch in early September.

NBA 2K21 reviews from critics and hardcore fans of the series will help you decide if the game is worth buying early or if you're better off waiting for it to hit the bargain bin.

Look for reviews to arrive in and around the game's September 4th release date. 

One other note. If you're using an older Windows PC, you might want to hang back and see how the game performs.

2K's released the minimum and recommended NBA 2K21 PC requirements. If your setup barely meets the threshold, you might want to wait for feedback from people with similar hardware. 

For reference, here are the minimum and recommended PC specifications for NBA 2K21:
