They can also make a similar game for NBA 2K21. The boredom generated by COVID-19 will make it even more compelling if they do that again. Next-gen's version 2K21 will launch once the new consoles are available for Xbox on the 10th of November. two days after that, Playstation will have it as well.
Esports have been booming, and the NBA 2K League is thriving. The NBA 2K League has announced an updated process for tryouts for the upcoming season. It is scheduled to begin in 2021. This new format will feature over 35 Pro-Am tournaments, which will be managed by NBA 2K League teams. The teams that win will be highlighted in a League-hosted "NBA 2K League Draft Prospect Series" and the first-of-its-kind NBA 2K League Combine.
It's the next phase in the NBA 2K League's rapid growth and expansion, which NBA 2K League Managing Director Brendan Donohue, described to me on a recent conference call as "transformational".
The 3rd season of the NBA 2K League saw a significant increase in broadcast distribution and audience. Donohue states "Just comparison apples-to-apples. Just our broadcasts on Twitch are increasing by more than 70% year over year," and that there were many distributors around the globe and included ESPN 2. Live games were broadcast on ESPN2, ESPN's digital platforms, Sportsnet Canada, Sportsnet in Southeast Asia Cheap NBA 2K22 MT, Loco in India and, with a delay, eGG Network Southeast Asia. This was the first time that 2K League games have been broadcast on linear television.
