NBA 2x NBA 2 NBA 2: The First Half, the first NBA game in the new 2x franchise, will be free-of-charge in 2019, according to a post on the official NBA 2.0 website.
The move is an effort to improve the game’s competitive environment.
2K is in talks with some publishers and will release the full game in 2019.
The next NBA title, 2K17, will have a free-from-launch option that will require players to buy in.
“We want to ensure that people who love the NBA can get that experience and that they can continue to play,” NBA 2X senior vice president of sales and marketing Dan Ozzi said.
“When you are a 2x player and you want to see what it’s like to be a professional player, you’re going to want that game experience.
You want to know what it feels like to play the best players in the world.”NBA 2K16, the sequel to the franchise’s first title, sold around 1.5 million copies in its first week, according, according a February report by comScore.
The title’s free-play offering will include a single-player mode that will be available to those who purchased the sequel.
The free-for-all mode will be part of the NBA 2 game, but Ozzi says it won’t be an option in the future.
The NBA 2 franchise has seen its share of ups and downs over the years.
In April, the franchise was forced to scrap the NBA’s free agency rules after the league’s players union said players were being offered “compensation packages” that were in violation of the Collective Bargaining Agreement.
The franchise also saw a number of big-name stars leave the franchise after the 2018-19 season, including LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony and Stephen Curry.
The release of NBA 2 series 19 was originally scheduled for November, but was pushed back to the summer to give players time to prepare for the new season.
