NBA 2K21 was announced for Fall 2020 release with a short gameplay teaser featuring Zion Williamson during Thursday's PS5 reveal.. The short teaser used alpha footage from the NBA 2K21 engine.

So while the NBA is planning on a return at the end of July, fans can also look forward to the release of NBA 2K21 in the fall during its usual release window.

NBA 2K21 Release Date Information

2K Games didn't show an actual release day or give any information on whether the pandemic will end up delaying the release of the game. For now, fans should expect the game to arrive on time. We'll update the page once more information is shared about the product.

Using Williamson as the player in the teaser lends itself to the notion that he could be among the candidates to grace the cover this year. Williamson is certainly a deserving candidate of the honor, turning in a strong rookie campaign during the shortened NBA season.

Fans of the franchise are awaiting news about potential updates and new features in the new game, but for now they'll have to settle for a vague release date.
