There are still tons of questions on this front? It is going to be among the first things that I look at when I put my hands on a copy of the game. In conclusion, are my expectations low? No, but they're really thinking about the timing of the release.EA and NBA 2K Coins are in interesting places. EA has the same scenario with FIFA 21.
After all, the 2020 NBA Draft nor free agency won't have occurred by the time current-gen NBA 2K21 is published. In reality, the 2019-20 NBA season won't even be done. Due to all these items, anyone expecting as big of an attempt as we normally see from an annual 2K release is likely to be disappointed. All logic points into 2K saving all or most of its ammunition on the next-gen models. That said, what exactly does a suitable current-gen release look like for 2K? I've got a few ideas.
As we've seen from the gameplay trailer that released last month, the graphics will be almost identical, if not identical to NBA 2K20. While this might be a problem for some, I am fine with this piece of stagnation. There are Two reasons: first, I believe we've already seen this creation of consoled pushed to their graphical limit. It is not likely to get much better on PS4 and XB1 than what we see here. Secondly, it would be foolish to presume Buy MT 2K21 would want to invest in improving the product visually if they stand to benefit from providing a next-gen version that will be hyped up largely due to how amazing it seems. 2K and every other producer of yearly sports video games will need the gap between current and next-gen to be somewhat evident from a visual standpoint. As a consumer, I'm fine with that approach.
