2K Games will expand NBA 2K21‘s WNBA content by giving players a new feature dubbed The W. Exclusively available in next-gen versions, The W adds the WBNA to the MyPlayer experience. Players will be able to build their own WNBA player and plan out her pro career in the professional league.
The W will also include a multiplayer component. Called The W Online, the mode features two teams of three WNBA MyPlayer characters competing against each other.
“We’re really proud to continue our great partnership with the WNBA and introduce players to The W,” stated Visual Concepts senior producer Felicia Steenhouse. “Being able to recognize yourself both on and off the court is incredibly important to us. The W helps us elevate women’s basketball and highlights the starpower of the WNBA.”
