NBA 2K21 is the latest in the ever popular NBA 2K series, which released back in September for current-gen consoles. While the game is set to arrive on next-gen consoles when they launch next week, 2K Sports is definitely not forgetting about the current-gen version in any way. They have supported and will continue to support this version, with a new patch just going live for the game.
