Does anyone know if there will be cross-gen drama for 2K21?

  • My question could apply to additional game modes although I am especially speaking about NBA 2K21 MT mycareer. I had been planning on getting the gen mamba edition when XSX releases, so I could have both gen copies. I've been reading about on this sub and it sounds like the next gen 2K21 is going to be an almost entirely different game. It sucks to hear that people might lose mycareer advancement but I can live with it. What I can't live with, is if 2K will be dividing the player base (current gen and next gen). The majority of my friends who have NBA 2K21 will not be getting the newest consoles when they release. That is a dealbreaker for me, if my friends and I can't play.

    Next-gen consoles may play also the game as well as with the next-gen game. For example, you can play MyLeague and MyTeam on next-gen but play MyCareer on current-gen with friends who do not upgrade, along with your VC earnings will be from the shared wallet. Current-gen consoles can play with the game. It is like they are trying to shoot themselves. They keep up it saying they built a brand-new game from the ground up which I believe is a load of bs. This is only one of the stupidest decisions Ive ever found in a game. I am the same op. I need to buy the current gen so I can play with my pals although I'd want the next gen game but. Ensure it is a free update like every other firm you greedy fucks.

    I get its awakened, but this is how it was from xbox 360 - xbox one or ps3 - ps4 with 2K14 too. Even worse cuz you HAD to buy no option for both, every seperately. It is how it had been with 2K14 gen, rebuilt from the ground up. Additionally there was this large meeting between developers and colleagues I believe and they left these claims. If they lie, they can really get screwed. Only get the Kobe edition, you get 200k VC complete, it's worth it alone for that.

    A new engine was assembled for next gen consoles although we'll have to see but. Have a ton more cpu processing power which"should" lead to better animation physics and AI and greater fps even though they'll likely cap at 60 online. Thats why they can not perform together and 2K understand they gonna market regardless. I'm kinda torn. Do I wait patiently for ps5 version or just get the mamba edition and transition to MT for sale 2K21 ps5 when it comes out because accounts and vc transfer just cant play together. The mamba version will give you 200K VC. I looked for that info about the vc. Heard it was 100 each heard it was only on ps4. I mean I should probably go ahead and get the mamba variant I know I am gon na regardless of how cheesy it ends up being play 2K all year.
