NBA 2K21 release date is on the forefront of every fan’s mind after the first trailer for the game was revealed at the PlayStation 5 launch event last week.
The new trailer, which was really only used to show off PS5’s insane new graphics, showed a video game version of Pelicans rookie Zion Williamson dunking in an empty gym. It didn’t give any new information about the game itself, which drew some ridicule from the 2K twitterverse.
There is currently no release date for NBA 2K21. The trailer did announce the game would be released in fall 2020, which is the same as in previous years.
Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, though, the game’s release might be pushed back to late fall or even early winter. The NBA season will be restarting on July 31, meaning it will end later than usual as well, which could cause the game’s release to be delayed.
Until a release date is announced, 2K fans will probably be arguing about who deserves to be the cover athlete for 2K21, following Anthony Davis for 2K20. Zion and Kobe Bryant are both names who have been thrown around, but perhaps an incredible performance in the remainder of the NBA season will bring someone else to the forefront.
