Is NBA 2K23 Cross Platform? Explained

Will you be able to play NBA 2K23 with all your pals?

NBA 2K23 is here and, by all accounts, is off to a fantastic start. MyCareer is extensive, MyTeam is full of options to entertain, and the player build system has taken on a life of its own. Of course, players are always wanting more. In this case, though, they are simply hoping that NBA 2K23 offers cross platform capability. So, does it? That’s what we’re here to tell you.

Does NBA 2K23 Have Crossplay?

Unfortunately, no, NBA 2K23 does not feature a cross platform/crossplay option between PlayStation, Xbox, Nintendo Switch, and PC. This is confirmed as much on 2K’s FAQ page. Additionally, there is no cross-gen multiplayer, either. That means PS4 users cannot play with those on PS5, and Xbox One players cannot play with anyone on Xbox Series X|S.

For what it’s worth, players will be able to take advantage of cross progression—which allows them to carry over MyTeam progress and Virtual Currency—but again, not across platforms. PS4 progress can be carried over to PS5, while Xbox One users can carry their progress over to Xbox Series X|S. That’s a small consolation prize, right?

There is something special about being able to jump on and play games with your friends regardless of where everyone is located, so it’s unfortunate that NBA 2K23 does not offer cross platform. Maybe it’ll be added next year? One can hope. That said, there is plenty to enjoy about 2K’s latest entry.
