Arcade basketball game joins the NBA 2K series.

NBA 2K Playgrounds 2

2K Games has announced that it will publish arcade basketball title NBA Playgrounds 2, which will now be known as NBA 2K Playgrounds 2 to complement the company’s NBA 2K simulation franchise and further expand its footprint in the basketball game space.

“The original NBA Playgrounds was a fantastic throwback to the glory days of arcade-action sports,” said Greg Thomas, president of NBA 2K/em> series developer Visual Concepts, in a press release. “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.”

Matt Karch, CEO of NBA 2K Playgrounds 2 developer Saber Interactive, added, “No one is more committed to bringing fans a great basketball experience than 2K. We can’t wait to share more on how we’re teaming up to make NBA 2K Playgrounds 2’s incredible arcade action bigger and better than ever for players.”

NBA 2K Playgrounds 2 is due out for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC this fall.
