As fans gear up for the latest instalment of NBA, many are wondering whether NBA 2K24 will be on PS5 or PS4.

With a launch date recently announced for September, NBA 2K24 is arriving with a couple of new and exciting developments. With most AAA titles these days being made exclusive for current generation consoles, fans of the franchise want to know whether they’ll be able to play NBA 2K24 on PS4. The game honours the legacy of the iconic player Kobe Bryant with Kobe Bryant and Black Mamba editions. The game’s arrival also marks 25 years of NBA 2K with Kobe Bryant, which only makes us more excited.

Will NBA 2K24 be on PS5 or PS4?

According to Publisher 2K and Visual Concepts, NBA 2K24 will be available on both PS5 and PS4, along with other platforms including Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S PC and Switch. This is extremely exciting news for those on older consoles. While it’s worth noting that those on older consoles like the PlayStation 4 will not enjoy the same that current-gen consoles boast, the main thing is that NBA 2K24 should be a largely similar game on PS4.

The news of crossplay for NBA 2K24 means as many players as possible will be able to experience the next-gen instalment after a successful NBA 2K23. Those keen to get ahead should go ahead and check out our pre-order guide, which includes a Kobe Bryant Edition paying tribute to his incredible legacy on the sport. There’ll also be the option for Dual-gen access for those who purchase the 25th Anniversary Edition or the Black Mamba Edition, ideal for those looking to upgrade their console. If you’re hoping to hear Sony announce its speculated PS5 Slim later this year, then it’ll be well worth choosing your NBA 2K24 edition wisely.
