NBA 2K24 is going to be the first game in the franchise that supports crossplay. You’ll have a larger pool of players to play with, including being able to play with friends who aren’t on the same console as you. However, this new crossplay feature does have some limitations. Here’s a guide that shows you how the NBA 2K24 crossplay works and how to play with friends.

How Does Crossplay Work in NBA 2K24?

Crossplay in NBA 2K24 allows players on the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S to play together across all multiplayer game modes. However, it’s important to note that players on PS5 and Xbox Series X|S cannot play with last-gen consoles (PS4 and Xbox One) or PC, and vice versa. PC players cannot crossplay in NBA 2K24 since 2K Games did not include the crossplay feature for the PC version. Multiplayer on PC, PS4, Xbox One, and the Nintendo Switch is restricted within their respective platforms.

2K Games confirmed crossplay support on their official site through an FAQ. According to the official NBA 2K24 FAQ page, “Experience cross-platform multiplayer with your friends in NBA 2K24 on PlayStation®5 and Xbox Series X|S across all game modes”, there is no mention of crossplay support being available for other platforms.

Crossplay has been a community-requested feature for a long time now, and it’s been added to the latest NBA 2K game. Although it’s limited with the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S, other platforms are a bit more unrestricted. If you have friends you’re planning to play NBA 2K24 with, you should communicate what platform to get the game on so you can crossplay with each other.
