Is NBA 2K24 on PC Next-Gen?

PC will not be next-gen, this was confirmed via NBA 2K24’s Steam page

You may be asking “why is NBA 2K24 not on next-gen?”. NBA 2K rep “2K Corey” shed some light on this in 2022 on discord:

“Wanted to address the PC discussion and give some insight from a business perspective on why it takes time for sports games to make the transition on PC’s vs. console. I can assure you, this isn’t ‘laziness’, in fact, this has been the case nearly every single generation – it normally takes a few years to see this change occur. Here’s a big reason why:

As much as hardcore gamers buy new consoles or super high-powered PC’s, most players do not own the biggest/brightest tech out there. When looking at what gen to put on PC, you have to look at the player base, and what capabilities their hardware has from a minimum spec perspective.

So let’s say to run the new gen you need a much higher spec’ed PC, you may cut off 30-40% of the PC market, who is able to play the game at min-spec on older gen. Usually after new consoles come out, there’s a big uptick in players improving PC’s more casually, and games that have yearly iterations base decisions like this on the percentage of players on PC who meet the min spec threshold.

I know most in here are hardcore players, as are most of us, so this can be frustrating, but PC is vastly different than console, where everyone is on the same machine. Therefore, you have to base decisions on where the most amount of players can play. That’s the business side of it.”
