Will NBA 2K21 saves on PS4 and Xbox One transfer to PS5 and Xbox Series X?

You’ll have to sacrifice more than just your wallet for the next-gen version of 2K21.

The Long Dark Survival Mode Custom Difficulty

In 2013, many NBA 2K14 fans were not too enthused when discovering their save files from PS3 or Xbox 360 would not be brought over to their future PS4 and Xbox One consoles. Now, many are left wondering, 7 years later, if NBA 2K20 will finally allow players to transfer their progress over from current-gen platforms to the next wave of consoles releasing.

According to Twitter handle 2KIntel, 2K has still not figured out how to end this unfortunate trend. In the image provided by the account, one user asked 2K support’s site if “MyCareer [progress] will transfer over to the PS5.” The support employee wrote back, “Unfortunately, no. Each console has their own save unique to that particular console and not interchangeable.”

If each console bares these “unique” saves, then it’s not probable roster and franchise files will be capable of cross-save transfer, either. However, those who favor the card-collecting MyTeam mode are in luck. According to Forbes, players are going to be able to carry over their cards and VC wallet to their PS5 or Xbox Series X. Of course, this is only possible if you are a PS4 owner looking to switch over to PS5, and vice versa for Xbox.
