Is NBA 2K21 cross-generation?

NBA 2K21 for PS4 and Xbox One is built differently from the bottom up than the next-gen PS5 and Xbox Series X/S versions. If you own the next-gen version, you can’t crossplay with the last-gen version.

However, NBA 2K21 is cross-gen, though only through backward compatibility and only through buying the Mamba Forever Edition or buying both games separately. That means Xbox Series X/S owners can crossplay NBA 2K21 with Xbox One owners.

Likewise, PS5 players can play NBA 2K21 together with PS4 players. That’s because it’s the same version of the game running on both platforms.
