With 2K Games announcing the NBA 2K21 release date today, some might be wondering how will it work if they first play NBA 2K21 on current-gen, but decides to move to next-gen (PS5, Xbox Series X) platforms. Well, you need not worry, as NBA 2K21 cross-progression both for MyTeam, and even for your VC (Virtual Currency) has been confirmed.
2K Games announced in its press release that NBA 2K21 cross-progression within the same console family (PS4 to PS5, Xbox One to Xbox Series X) will be part of MyTeam, so you can carry your progress from one platform to the next. This applies to VC as well, as players will have a “Shared VC Wallet” within the same console family. Here’s the full explanation from the press release.
While the next-generation version of NBA 2K21 is being built from the ground up for next-generation consoles, 2K is also introducing several initiatives to bridge the two versions of the game. NBA 2K21 will feature MyTEAM Cross-Progression and a Shared VC Wallet within the same console family (PS4 to PS5, Xbox One to Xbox Series X). MyTEAM Cross-Progression enables all MyTEAM Points, Tokens, cards and progress to be shared on both current and next-generation versions of NBA 2K21 in the same console family; similarly, the Shared VC Wallet means any earned or purchased VC is accessible across both current and next-generation versions of NBA 2K21 in the same console family. As shared earlier, players who are interested in picking up both versions of NBA 2K21 on either PlayStation or Xbox can check out the Mamba Forever Edition, which provides dual-access by providing purchasers with a copy of the standard edition of NBA 2K21 on the other generation at no additional cost, within the same console family.
Well, that’s welcome news, right? At least those who spend real-world money on VC can sleep easy knowing they can carry that over to whichever next-gen console they buy — provided its within the same console family, of course.
