2K has confirmed the NBA 2K21 demo will release on 24th August 2020.
Heading to Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, the demo will give players a free slice of on-court action, although Comic Book reports there’s no confirmation yet of a similar demo coming to PC or Google Stadia.

NBA 2K21 is out on 4th September on Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. It will also release on PS5 and Xbox Series X when they’re finally available later this year.
NBA 2K21 publisher Take-Two Interactive recently had to defend its decision to charge $10/£10 more for the game on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X.
As Tom reported at the time, Take-Two boss Strauss Zelnick said the price hike was designed to “reflect the quality of the experience” and that it was “an extremely modest price change given that prices haven’t changed for a very long time”.
Zelnick later added in an investor call that next-gen game pricing would still be decided on a “title-by-title basis”, suggesting not every Take-Two release would see the same increase.
The publisher will release a new version of Grand Theft Auto 5 on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X in the second half of 2021, with visual and performance upgrades plus next-gen exclusive additions to multiplayer portion Grand Theft Auto Online. There’s no word on how much this update will cost, or if existing owners will be able to upgrade somehow.
