Xbox and PC players may be wondering if the game is available to play on Xbox Game Pass. The streaming service is a highly convenient way to save money on new releases after all.

If you’re wondering whether or not NBA 2K24 is on the Microsoft subscription service, here’s everything you need to know.

Is NBA 2K24 on Xbox Game Pass?

The NBA 2K series has been on Xbox Game Pass in the past.

No, NBA 2K24 is currently not available on Xbox Game Pass at launch.

However, considering NBA 2K22 has been playable on Game Pass, it’s fairly safe to assume that the latest installment will come to Microsoft’s subscription service at some point in the future.

This is particularly good news for those who wish to play the game without purchasing a copy. It’s important to note that NBA 2K22 didn’t appear on Xbox Game Pass at launch – instead, players had to wait a few months before it was eventually added in April 2022. 

Meanwhile, NBA 2K23 only had a free-to-play weekend in February 2023 for Game Pass subscribers, so we can expect 2K24 will do the same.

Based on this release pattern, it will be some time before NBA 2K24 makes its way to Game Pass so if you’re an Xbox or PC player who’s particularly keen to get on the court right away, buying a copy of the game will be the best way to go.
