Crossplay is a feature that has slowly but surely been integrated into sports games, including the most recent FIFA and NHL entries, and with NBA 2K24, cross-platform play has finally come to the 2K franchise.

How does crossplay work in NBA 2K24?

The crossplay feature in NBA 2K24 means players on Xbox Series S/X and PlayStation 5 can play the game together even though they may be using different consoles.

It’s been a staple feature in many Battle Royale and FPS titles for years now, and with NBA 2K24 it has finally come to the 2K series. With crossplay now available, it will make it extremely easy and convenient for players on Xbox Series S/X and PS5 to join their friends on the court.

Unfortunately, the feature is only available for current-gen consoles so Xbox One, PS4 and Nintendo Switch players won’t be able to access it. As the PC version of NBA 2K24 isn’t next gen either, you’ll only be able to match up against other Steam players on PC.
