Although the demo doesn’t allow us to get a head start on the MyCAREER story in NBA 2K21, it does drop a couple of hints about this year’s tale. Under the MyCAREER save files in the demo’s MyPLAYER Builder, the following blurb can be found.
Growing up the son of a local hoops legend isn’t easy, as you’ll discover early on in NBA 2K21’s MyCAREER mode. Everywhere you look are reminders of the greatness that you’re expected to live up to. But can you? Work your way through high school and college on your way to the NBA, and see if you can achieve the potential you’re destined for.
The first Current Gen gameplay trailer confirmed the inclusion of college teams in the NBA 2K21 MyCAREER story, and we now have confirmation of a high school portion as well. Being the son of a legendary player is one of the more original tales so far, so it’ll be interesting to see how it plays out.
NBA 2K21 Current Gen launches on September 4th for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. Feel free to speculate on the story in the comments section below, and join in all of the discussion taking place in the NBA 2K21 section of the NLSC Forum!
