Still no new generation for PC version of NBA 2K23 – Gamosaurus

While 2K has unveiled the first official trailer for NBA 2K23, we now know that the PC version won’t include the next generation. Missing from several editions of the basketball game, the next generation only appears in the PS5 and Xbox Series X versions. As such, PC and Nintendo Switch players will once again be out of the content of the famous franchise.

No next gen ahead of NBA 2K24 for PC players?

If we were already very disappointed that we didn’t take advantage of the next gen in NBA 2K22 (see our test), this announcement is a bit of a blow to our morale and that of all PC players. Proof that the studio is taking no chances by confirming this news at the very end of their official FAQ, a way to drown out information amidst all the news and announcements.

While we understand the original reason (the next generation requires significant power), forcing PC players to wait 3 years (at least) before taking advantage of this technology feels like a blow under the belt from 2K to us. Especially since this machine power argument is less relevant for PCs, as even entry-level PCs are now just as powerful (in theory) as next-gen consoles.

While FIFA 23 already confirmed next-gen on PC in September, this new one-year delay could drastically limit the popularity of the basketball game on PC.

Note that the Nintendo Switch is also devoid of nextgen, but this situation is considerably less surprising, especially since traditional sports games tend to be less present on the Japanese console.

PC players will once again lose the next generation version of NBA 2K23, further widening the gap between users of this support and console users. While waiting for the opportunity to play the new opus, you can find all the information about NBA 2K22 on Gamosaurus.
