With the release of NBA 2K21 on the Epic Game Store, we’ve pulled together a list of commonly asked questions to help shed some light on the release!

NBA 2K21 is built from the ground up for next-gen and will feature new additions and improvements only possible on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S.
