2K Announces They will Publish NBA Playgrounds 2; Studio Believes in Arcade Sports Titles

The original NBA Playgrounds released back in May 2017, and since then, Saber Interactive announced a sequel and even delayed it only two days prior to its release.

Renowned publisher 2K announced they signed an agreement with Saber Interactive to publish NBA Playgrounds 2. In addition to that, as a result of this agreement, the title was renamed to NBA 2K Playgrounds 2, which is such a mouthful to say to be honest. However, having the 2K branding and support from a well-known basketball developer such as 2K will certainly improve the sequel’s chances of outperforming its predecessor. President of Visual Concepts Greg Thomas promised NBA 2K Playgrounds 2 will be a step up from the original title, and after the recent agreement with 2K, the title will certainly feature “a bit of added NBA 2K flair.”

The original NBA Playgrounds was a fantastic throwback to the glory days of arcade-action sports. The new NBA 2K Playgrounds 2 will step up this energy and attitude big time – with a bit of added NBA 2K flair – giving fans of both franchises an exciting new way to game with friends around the world.

NBA 2k Playgrounds 2 still doesn’t have a release date as of the time of writing, but will release on PS4, Xbox One, PC and Nintendo Switch.
