2K has actually validated the NBA 2K21 demonstration will launch on 24th August 2020.
Heading to Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, the demonstration will give players a free slice of on-court action, although Comic Book reports there’s no confirmation yet of a similar demonstration 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 launch 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 launch would see the same increase.
The publisher will launch a brand-new variation of Grand Theft Auto 5 on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X in the 2nd half of 2021, with visual and efficiency upgrades plus next-gen unique additions to multiplayer part Grand Theft Auto Online. There’s no word on just how much this upgrade will cost, or if existing owners will have the ability to update in some way.
