NBA Playgrounds 2 has a new name, a new release date, and a new publisher. 2K Games announced today that it is now publishing NBA Playgrounds 2 as NBA 2K Playgrounds 2, releasing on PlayStation 4, Switch, Xbox One, and PC later this year.
Greg Thomas, president of 2K subsidiary Visual Concepts called the original NBA Playgrounds “a fantastic throwback to the glory days of arcade-action sports.” He promised NBA 2K Playgrounds 2 “will step up this energy and attitude big time.”
NBA Playgrounds 2 was first announced in April, but it was delayed just days before its original May 22 release date. At the time, developer Saber Interactive said “there are exciting things brewing with the NBA Playgrounds franchise that we think will take arcade basketball to new levels.”
