2K Sports will offer a demo for NBA 2K20 starting August 21, the company has announced. It will be available for download starting 12:01 AM PT / 3:01 AM ET.

The demo will let players get an early start on MyCAREER and the MyPLAYER builder. Multiple MyPLAYER configurations can be made, which will be carried over to the full game.

NBA 2K20 launches September 6.


Ahead of release in September, 2K Sports has revealed some of the player ratings in the upcoming NBA 2K20, including the top 20 players overall.

Those interested can view the various lists below.

2K has officially announced NBA 2K20, which will be released on Switch like the past few entries. The game will launch worldwide on September 6.

Anthony Davis, a six-time NBA All-Star, three-time All-NBA First Team, three-time NBA All-Defensive Team, and 2012 Olympic gold medalist, will be appearing on the cover of the standard and deluxe editions. Three-time NBA Champion, 13-time NBA All-Star, 2008 Olympic gold medalist, and 2006 NBA Finals MVP Dwyane Wade will be featured on the Legend Edition cover.

Here’s a rundown of what’s included in each version of NBA 2K20:

NBA 2K19 has received a massive discount on the North American Switch eShop. The game normally goes for $59.99, but can be had for just $2.99 – a 95 percent discount.

This sale lasts until June 18. Check out the official listing on Nintendo’s website here.


Much like with EA and FIFA, 2K Sports has been putting the NBA 2K series on Switch since 2017. The tradition appears to be continuing with this year’s release.

Though it has yet to be announced officially, we obviously know that NBA 2K20 will be happening later in the year. Some promotional material has surfaced online for a Legend Edition, which features now-retired NBA star Dwyane Wade. You’ll also notice that towards the bottom, a Switch logo is included.

2K will likely be revealing NBA 2K20 within the next few days. Based on what’s leaked, the game should be launching in early September.


Another game has joined the lineup of games to support cross-play between platforms. NBA 2K Playgrounds 2, which launched last October, now supports the functionality. Switch players can go up against those on Xbox One and PC.

NBA 2K Playgrounds 2’s latest update also adds new content. The team has brought in a new Mars Playground, new outfits, and court editor items.


2K and Saber Interactive have introduced a new update for NBA 2K Playgrounds 2. The game has received the 2019 NBA All-Star playground in Charlotte and a special Valentine’s Day playground in addition to new cosmetic outfit items themed around both playgrounds and dozens of new players to unlock.

Here’s some additional information about what else has been added:

NBA 2K19 has been updated on Switch again. Version 1.05 is now live, including several Switch-specific fixes.

The full patch notes are as follows:

2K and Saber Interactive have announced that new DLC is live for NBA 2K Playgrounds 2. Players can access Christmas-themed content, including a new playground, and festive vanity items.

That’s not all, as 35 new players are also available. Highlights include legendary ballers from the classic 90s NBA era like Karl Malone and Dennis Rodman.

The Christmas DLC in NBA 2K Playgrounds 2 is free for all players.

The team behind NBA 2K Playgrounds 2 won’t be abandoning the game anytime soon. As relayed by lead producer Tobias Heussner, the team has a lot of additions lined up for the future.

Heussner said, “we’re planning to add some existing features to the game as well as more playgrounds as we did with the Halloween DLC. Also, more NBA players will be made available to our community. A lot more DLC is coming!”
