NBA 2K21 next-gen ditches The Neighbourhood, adds The City

NBA 2K21 on next-gen consoles Xbox Series S & X and PS5 will ditch The Neighbourhood for The City, a hub “many, many times larger” than what we’ve seen in the past.

“Imagine a map that is many, many times larger than previous Neighborhoods. A design that resembles a modern metropolis, complete with towering skyscrapers, sprawling plazas, and a city center,” 2K’s Erick Boenisch said in an update. “Oh, and it houses four distinct boroughs that are controlled by four rival Affiliations. And with that, I’m incredibly proud to announce that Affiliations are BACK! I’ll go into more details on Affiliations a little further below. For now, let’s keep painting the picture of what The City truly is.

“The City is our most ambitious execution of a virtual basketball community…ever.”

You can read more about The City in the update linked above. In addition to The City, the next-gen version of 2K’s basketball game will also add the WNBA to MyCareer.

NBA 2K21 is already available on Windows PC, Xbox One, PS4, Switch and Stadia. It heads to Xbox Series S and X on 10 November, followed on PS5 from 12 November.
