If you’re in the know about the gaming community, then you know that NBA 2K is one of the most controversial franchises ever. You would think a standard basketball game that keeps evolving every year would have a good reception with fans, correct? Unfortunately, the answer is no.
NBA 2K is a staple in AAA Titles that releases every single year along with the rest of its 2K and EA Sports counter-parts. Already, this comes with a lot of haste as a high percentage of the fan base believes the games are so called “re-skins” of the prior installments with only 1 or 2 changes and updated rosters. These allegations are mostly correct. However, sports games do tend to break the mold sometimes and truly upgrade with the new titles. With the upcoming release of NBA 2K21 only a few weeks away, we still have no clue what to think of the game because we have no information.
NBA 2K and Take Two are usually marketing geniuses when it comes to spreading information and building hype for the new NBA 2K. Ronnie 2K is the community manager for NBA 2K and he excels at bringing the latest and greatest features of the newest NBA 2K installment to all the popular 2K content creators. However, the NBA 2K21 Prelude dropped on August 24th, and players are finally figuring out things about the game on their own after being left in the dark about what the game entailed. The entire 2K team was SILENT regarding news about 2K21. Were they trying to hide something? Are they disappointed about this year’s installment? Is it just another “re-skin” year and NBA 2K is trying to rob pockets? Watch some gameplay from the big content creators and decide that for yourself.
