This is everything we know about NBA 2K22 on PC


NBA 2K22 is the new 2K basketball video game, this time with Luka Doncic, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Dirk Nowitzki, Kevin Durant and Candance Parker as the main protagonists.

In this article we will focus on the PC version, which is the version I've been covering since I started at modding.

The question that the entire PC community was asking was the same. 

1. Is the PC version last-gen or next-gen?

So we will start by answering this question. NBA 2K22 on PC will be the Last-Gen version, the same version as PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch as we learned in a FAQ that 2K published.

"Q: Are there any plans to bring the next generation of NBA 2K titles to PC and Switch in the future?

 A: This is something the team is passionate about and will continue to investigate what is possible for the franchise in the future. For now, the focus was on assuring NBA 2K22 was optimized for the new consoles (PlayStation®5, Xbox Series X|S), while also making sure the experience remains fresh and innovative for players on other platforms."

I understand that this is not to everyone's liking, but the truth is that not everyone has a PC with enough power to be able to run a next generation video game. And that would mean a considerable decrease in sales, and the possibility of not having more PC support in the future.

I also understand 2K's stance with the PC version, since many users don't even buy the original version. And this should not be so. If you enjoy it, pay for it and support the company. They will reward us if they see that we provide high-impact support.

If there is something special about the PC version, it is the huge community of creators / modders who provide fresh content every day for free. So there is no reason not to buy the game, and to be able to enjoy all the mods and rosters of the community with total confidence that everything will work correctly and be able to contribute / download content from 2kshare.

2. When is the release date for NBA 2K22 PC?

NBA 2K22 will be available worldwide from September 10, 2021.

3. Will we be able to install Mods in NBA 2K22 on PC?

Being a Last-Gen version, the files structure of NBA 2K22 on PC will be similar to NBA 2K21. So there should be no problem for modders like Looyh, Limnono, FLS Team, and others to release their tools for NBA 2K22.
Once, Looyh updates his Hook tool with Mods folder, it will be the beginning of a new season of incredible works by the NBA 2K PC community.

When NBA 2K22 is released on PC you will have here at the first news, new tools, mods, file compatibility of NBA 2K20 and NBA 2K21 etc. We will see if the cyberfaces of NBA 2K21 are fully functional in NBA 2K22 without a previous conversion process.

Also, this year I will work on the PCBasket project again, bringing the NBA, Euroleague and FIBA ​​in a single roster. It will be the biggest project I have ever worked on, so stay tuned to my Twitter and join me on discord here to don't miss my updates.

4. First screenshots of NBA 2K22 on PC

According to a leak via @2kintel, we have been able to see the first three screenshots of NBA 2K22 on last-gen.

5. New Features for NBA 2K22 on PC

2K ensures in its FAQ that despite being last gen, NBA 2K22 on PC, PS4 and Xbox One will bring a gameplay with multiple improvements so that the experience remains fresh and innovative.

In addition to a renewed gameplay, the new shot meter will be available on PC, as well as the inclusion of the Official PA Announcers of every single NBA team.

NBA 2K22 on PC will be a fresh experience with all this new features. And the great work done by the NBA 2K PC Modding Community will give it a new degree of realism that will add even more fun to the game.
