Due to the growth Of Esports, NBA 2K League is taking off

Posted by Megaomgchen on August 28th, 2021

They launched 2K16, 17 and 18 shortly after the leap. I believe these to be their top games with 16, which is the most memorable. If they can recreate that 2K22 MT magical experience in NBA 2K21, not only will they make an outstanding game, but the effect of it could be so much larger due to the boredom COVID-19 has caused us all.

Next generation\'s version of 2K21 will go on sale when the new consoles become available for Xbox on November 10th and two days after that, Playstation will have it as well.

This week the NBA 2K League announced a new process for tryouts for their next season, scheduled to be played in 2021. The new format will comprise over 35 Pro-Am tournaments, which will be hosted by NBA 2K League teams, and the teams that win will be featured in a League-hosted \"NBA 2K League Draft Prospect Series\" as well as a first-of-its-kind NBA 2K League Combine.

It\'s the next phase in the NBA 2K League\'s rapid expansion. Brendan Donohue (Managing Director of the NBA 2K League) described the new league to me on a phone call as \"transformational\".

The current season, which was the third season of the NBA 2K League edition, saw an enormous increase in the distribution of broadcasts and viewership. \"Just comparison of apples to apples the broadcasts we stream on Twitch are up by 70% year on Buy MT 2K22 year,\" Donohue outlines, \"and that\'s not even counting the fact that we added numerous distributors across the globe, including ESPN 2.\" Live games were shown on ESPN2 as well as ESPN\'s digital platforms, Sportsnet in Canada and with delay in the eGG Network in Southeast Asia and Loco in India it was the first broadcasts of 2K League games on linear television.
