NBA 2K24 Next Gen on PC

Will NBA 2K24 Be Next Gen on PC?

NBA 2K24 may be next gen on PC and here are the reasons to be optimistic in 2023. The answer to the question Will NBA 2K24 Be Next Gen on PC? is what many players in the PC community are waiting to read with a resounding Yes once the video game is released this year

Although it is still too early to know the details about NBA 2K24 on PC, we can take a look back and see what strategy 2K has followed in recent years. And from here outline a well-argued answer to think that this year may finally be the one chosen to see the leap to the next-gen on PC.

The next-gen aka new gen arrived in 2020 with the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S consoles. And therefore 2K released two versions of NBA 2K title for both current gen and next gen. At that moment the next gen version was exclusive to next-gen consoles but it is something that has happened until NBA 2K23

But what happened in past generations? To know the answer to this question we must go back to 2013 when the consoles of the previous generation PS4 and Xbox One landed. At that point, 2K decided to keep the version considered "current gen" on PC. And perhaps NBA 2K14 is by far the most played basketball video game on PC to date.

However, to the joy of many, the wait was not very long. 2K released the same version of NBA 2K15 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC in 2014. So, how is it possible that now, the PC version is still not next gen? Well, the answer was given by 2K in their official NBA 2K23´s FAQ page last year.

To the question 'Are there any plans to bring the next generation of NBA 2K titles to PC and Nintendo Switch in the future?' 2K has been optimistic that the team is excited to make it possible even though they need to optimize the next gen version first. It's hard to believe seeing NBA 2K24 next gen on Switch but it wouldn't be unreasonable to see the jump this year on PC.

Steam broke a record in 2022 with more than 30 million users online at the same time. This shows that the PC platform is a great market to take into account and continues to expand year after year. This data added to the years of optimization of the NBA 2K next gen title suggests to us that NBA 2K24 would be next gen on PC this year.
