The latest entry in the 2K franchise, NBA 2K24 has almost arrived and PC players will be eager to know if they’ll be getting an enhanced version of the game this year. Here’s everything we know about the Next Gen status of NBA 2K24.

The NBA 2K series made its Next Gen debut on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S with NBA 2K21 in 2020. That enhanced version wasn’t released until two months after the last-gen versions, meaning PC players missed out.

When the game was first announced it was also confirmed that full crossplay would be supported for console players on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S but the feature wouldn’t be coming to PC. The console versions of the game have also received significant technical innovations that are not present in the PC release.

Alongside the PC version still being last gen, it’s safe to assume the Nintendo Switch version also is as well, due to the hybrid console not being as powerful as the PS5 or Xbox Series S/X.
