As of now, cross-play of NBA 2K24 is limited to only the new-gen consoles. However, the company might introduce the feature for the old-gen consoles as well as other platforms. 

That’s almost everything you would want to know about the much-requested cross-play feature in NBA 2K24. The latest game in the mainline series is yet to be released. However, fans wanted to know about the cross-play feature they had been anticipating. As of now, the feature is only available in the new-gen consoles.

With that said, the NBA has finally added the feature, so the company might add more features. It also raises the possibility of the cross-play feature to be added in the old-gen consoles, PC, and Nintendo Switch sometime in the future.
