NBA 2K22: There will be no free next-generation upgrade to the PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X

The rumors and leaks of the past few weeks were correct:Dirk Nowitzki, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and Kevin Durant appear on the cover of the NBA 2K22 75th Anniversary edition, which celebrates the franchise's 75th anniversary.“It's been fascinating to watch the evolution of the European players, but also the evolution of the global players,” Nowitzki said of the evolution of the European players.“I believe the game is in excellent hands. There are many great European stars who are entertaining to watch, including Luka and Giannis, as well as Jokic and many, many others. It's just entertaining to see how advanced the game has become.”And Luka Doncic, the Mavericks' 22-year-old star, graces the covers of both the Standard Edition and the Cross-Gen Bundle of 2K22 MT.“It's a huge honor for me, of course, to be included with Kevin Durant and Kareem, two of the best players in the history of the game,” Nowitzki told media outlets, including The News, on a Zoom call, adding, “You have Luka on the real cover, so you have two Mavericks on the cover at the same time, which is super special.”

The legends edition cover of NBA 2K22, the latest installment in the basketball video game series, features Dirk Nowitzki, a Mavericks legend, as well as Kevin Durant and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.  The legends edition cover of NBA 2K22, the latest installment in the basketball video game series, features Dirk Nowitzki, a Mavericks legend, as well as Kevin Durant and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. In the blink of an eye, the Mavericks franchise has gone from a two-decade 2K cover shutout to 2K22 dominance. Damian Lillard and Zion Williamson were featured on the 2K21 standard cover last year. H is already a complete package at the age of 22. And that's terrifying, so he'll be around in Mavs land for the rest of his career and for a long, long time, and hopefully he'll be able to win an MVP award and bring another championship to Dallas.

Similarly to NBA 2K21, the PC version of NBA 2K22 will be based on the game's old-gen build. This means that the game will be visually and functionally similar to the previous year's offering. This was revealed by 2K Games in its most recent FAQ for cheap NBA 2K22 MT. According to the team, the current-gen version of NBA 2K22 is only available for the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S.2K Games has listed the PC as being in the previous generation version/build (which includes the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 4 Pro, Xbox One, Xbox One X, Nintendo Switch, and Steam). The cover of NBA 2K20 featured Anthony Davis. NBA 2K first appeared on the scene in 1999. Since then, there have been 38 standard, special edition, and spin-off covers, none of which have featured Mavericks players — with the exception of Kristaps Porzingis, who was a Knick at the time of his appearance on the My NBA 2K18 spin-off athlete cover.

And here is 2K Games' pathetic justification for treating PC gamers as second-class citizens:For the time being, the focus was on making sure NBA 2K22 was optimized for the new consoles (PlayStation®5, Xbox Series X|S), while also making sure the experience remained fresh and innovative for players on other platforms. There are so many talented young players who have the potential to carry this league for a long time. Furthermore, NBA 2K22 will not support cross-platform play between different platforms.

EA Sports also announced a couple of days ago that FIFA 22 will be available on PC in an older version of the game. Not only that, but Madden NFL 22 is also an old-gen game on the PC. And yes, I am almost certain that Konami will do exactly the same thing with eFootball PES 2022. As previously stated, if you wish to be treated as second-class citizens, you should purchase this year's FIFA, NBA 2K, and Madden games. However, we believe that PC enthusiasts deserve better than this. And yes, you should use your wallets to express your preferences. Just the facts, no fluff. Finally, in the same vein as FIFA 22 and Madden 22, we will not be publishing a PC Performance Analysis article for NBA 2K22.
