2K Games hasn’t made an official announcement yet, but here’s what you need to know right now about NBA 2K20 based on traditions, rumors, confirmed information, and what we expect from the annual release.
NBA 2K19 is still the flagship game, but that will change later this year when 2K Sports and Visual Dynamics announce a new entry in the long-running series.
NBA 2K20 Release Date
We don’t have a release date yet, but you can expect the NBA 2K20 release date to land sometime in September ahead of Black Friday and the holiday shopping season.
You can also expect there to be two NBA 2K20 release dates. An early tipoff for those who pre-order a deluxe version of the game and a global release date for the standard version of the game.Last year, early tipoff started on September 7th. The standard NBA 2K19 release date landed a few days later on September 11th. You can expect a similar gap for NBA 2K20.
Also look for Best Buy and GameStop to host midnight NBA 2K20 launch events giving those who pre-order a chance to pickup their game on the night of the release date.You can count on an NBA 2K20 release for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Windows PC, and Nintendo Switch. Look for the consoles to share pre-order bonuses and release dates.
We do not expect a release for legacy consoles like the Xbox 360 or PS3.
