It’s been rumoured for what feels like an eternity, but NBA 2K21 will finally add a female MyPLAYER mode. As part of a new mode named The W, you’ll be able to create your own WNBA superstar, and take them through a full pro career featuring all 12 real-world teams. You’ll also be able to go head-to-head “in The W Online featuring intense 3v3 MyPLAYER competition”.
There’s a trailer embedded above which introduces the new option. It does seem like a stripped back version of the traditional MyPLAYER mode, with no Neighborhood to participate in. However, publisher 2K Sports has been teasing changes to that aspect of the package as well, which we should learn more about imminently.
