NBA 2K24 Release Date, Cover Athletes & Latest News


NBA 2K24 Release Date

Although there is still a lot of content to come to the current video game, we are already looking forward to knowing the first details about NBA 2K24 such as its release date, cover athletes, editions, gameplay features, pre order and latest newsHere you will find all the information about NBA 2K24 that we know so far that is expected to be come out in 2023.

When does NBA 2K24 come out?

The first question that any player comes to mind is "When does NBA 2K24 come out?" It is still too early to know the release date but we can state that NBA 2K24 will most likely be released in September 2023Between the first and second week of September is the time chosen by 2K Sports to release its basketball simulator as we have been able to experience with previous titles.

NBA 2K24 Cover Athletes

NBA 2K24 will offer at least 4 editions of the game: Standard Edition, WNBA Edition, Digital Deluxe Edition and a Special Edition, that could be up to 6 as we have seen last year. We know that 2K not only has a single cover athlete but also several of them for different editions. 

For the Standard and Digital Edition versions, 2K usually select a current NBA player, as has been the case with Luka Doncic or Devin Booker in NBA 2K22 and NBA 2K23 respectively. For the WNBA Edition it obviously has an WNBA player. Sue Bird and Diana Taurasi were the cover athletes last year.

But the million-dollar question is "Which NBA player will be chosen to appear on the NBA 2K24 cover of the Special Edition?" This "Special Edition" still with a name to be determined has adopted different titles in recent years. "75th Anniversary Edition" in reference to the Anniversary of the NBA or "Championship Edition" winking at Michael Jordan

That Michael Jordan would be the NBA 2K23 cover athlete was an open secret. Number 23 was an unbeatable opportunity to pay homage to what is considered by many to be the best player in NBA history. That is why this makes us think that we can see Kobe Bryant back as the cover of NBA 2K24.

It is true that we saw Kobe Bryant very recently with NBA 2K21, but his loss was unexpected by us and it was an important moment to pay tribute to the former Los Angeles Lakers player. 3 years later, seeing him back as a cover of NBA 2K24 would be something special. 

Well, we could see Kobe Bryant's NBA career recreated in NBA 2K24 from his beginnings as a player at Lower Merion High School as well as his years as a Los Angeles Lakers player with which he won 5 NBA Championships: 2000, 2001, 2002, 2009 and 2010. We have already seen this with Michael Jordan in NBA 2K23 and 2K would not miss this opportunity.

NBA 2K24 Gameplay Features

NBA 2K24 will add new features to the gameplay as well as new animations yet to be determined. These features will be introduced once the NBA 2K24 trailer is revealed. 

The release date of the trailer is still unknown, but it is likely to be released in August 2023NBA 2K24 will be available for PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PC and Nintendo Switch.
