2K Publishing NBA Playgrounds 2 with New Title, Release Window

Saber Interactive’s follow-up to their arcade basketball title was originally scheduled for release back in May, but got indefinitely delayed at the last minute due to unknown reasons.

Now, 2K has revealed that they will be publishing the two-on-two basketball game, rebranding it as NBA 2K Playgrounds 2 to compliment their more realistic NBA 2K franchise. While there were no details on what, if any, gameplay or visual changes would arise as part of this rebranding, this is a promising partnership for both sides, particularly if Saber can more fully realize the potential of the first game with its sequel.

NBA 2K Playgrounds 2 is now set for a fall 2018 on PS4, Xbox One, Switch and PC.
