Can you have too much Michael Jordan in your life if you’re a basketball fan? 2K don’t think so! Yesterday, the sports game publisher announced a release date for the next NBA title, NBA 2K23, and it’s exactly when you think it is — September!
On 9th September, you’ll be able to shoot as many hoops as you want and “answer the call”, and there will be two editions launching — the Championship Edition and the Michael Jordan Edition. Fancy! The Championship Edition will include a 12-month subscription to NBA League Pass in North America which would otherwise cost $15 a month. Pre-orders open tomorrow, 7th July.
The Michael Jordan Edition, however, is graced with the 14-time NBA all-star’s presence. It’s the fourth time the player has been featured on the game’s cover, having previously adorned NBA 2K11, 2K12, and 2K16’s own.
NBA 2K23 will see the return of 2K11’s Jordan Challenges. There will be 15 of these — 10 rebuilt from 2K11 and five new challenges.
2K also gave us a look at two different versions of the legendary athlete in game — one from the 80s, and another from the 90s.
Prices for both editions will be revealed tomorrow when pre-orders go live, so don’t miss it! And if you’re worried that your favourite player won’t be gracing the cover, 2K has revealed that more stars will be announced when pre-orders drop. So there’s still hope!
Will you be grabbing the Michael Jordan Edition when pre-orders launch tomorrow? Let us know!
