Is NBA 2K23 cross-platform?
Now that the first major NBA 2K23 news drop has officially arrived, it's perhaps no surprise that many are wondering whether or not the game will incorporate some features never seen before in the franchise. As such, here's a breakdown of whether or not NBA 2K23 will have crossplay.
Is NBA 2K23 Cross-Platform?
Unfortunately, at the time of publication, 2K and the development team at Visual Concepts have yet to disclose whether or NBA 2K23 will have crossplay.
For those hoping for cross-gen play capabilities, that seems unlikely since NBA 2K tends to have two completely different MyCAREER environments depending on the platform.
Although NBA 2K has been released for PlayStation 4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch and PC (via Steam) throughout the years, there has yet to be crossplay support in the series between different consoles or PC.
There has been, however, the cross-progression feature in MyTeam that works across generations of consoles from the same console family (Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5).
Considering that cross-platform play is supported in other popular sports video game franchises like FIFA and MLB The Show, it's easy to understand why many in the NBA 2K community are calling for the feature to be added.
Crossplay would likely help out with queue times across the board in Play Now Online, MyCAREER and MyTEAM.
Additionally, it lets players play with friends on different platforms, connecting the community together in-game.
We will update this article once more information on the topic is released, so feel free to check back soon.
NBA 2K23 is set to release on Sept. 9, 2022.
UPDATE 7/7/22: As confirmed on the official NBA 2K23 FAQs page, NBA 2K23 will not feature crossplay between different platforms. Just like with NBA 2K22, however, NBA 2K23 will still feature MyTEAM Cross-Progression and a Shared VC Wallet within the same console family.
