Jun-07-2023 PST

NBA 2K24 is the upcoming installment from 2K Sports, aiming to maintain their dominance in the basketball gaming scene in 2023. Although NBA 2K24's official release date is a few months away, speculations about new features are already circulating.

Release Date of NBA 2K24

If 2K follows its usual pattern, NBA 2K24 is expected to be released on Friday, September 8, 2023.

Previous release dates of NBA 2K games:

      Game                                 Release Date

   NBA 2K23                           September 8, 2022

   NBA 2K22                           September 10, 2021

   NBA 2K21                           September 4, 2020

   NBA 2K20                           September 6, 2019

   NBA 2K19                           September 11, 2018  

The latest game currently does not have any early access options, but this could change, considering the trend of many major sporting events offering such rewards. As always, there may be multiple versions of the game, each providing unique benefits and in-game gifts for players to enjoy.

Predictions for NBA 2K24 Cover Athletes

Given Michael Jordan and Steph Curry's presence as playable characters in 2K Sports' PGA Tour 2K23, their existing relationship with the publisher could potentially secure them spots on the cover of NBA 2K24.

Giannis Antetokounmpo is a strong contender for the cover. As the main reason behind the Bucks' triumph in the No. 1 Eastern Conference, he holds significant popularity. However, Greece's early exit from the playoffs might hinder his chances of gracing the cover of NBA 2K24.

Nikola Jokic's outstanding season, with the Denver Nuggets superstar on the verge of potentially winning an NBA Finals title and lifting the Larry O'Brien trophy, makes him a likely candidate for the NBA 2K24 cover.

LeBron James and Joel Embiid are also among the favorites to appear on the cover of NBA 2K24.


NBA 2K23 was released on current-gen and next-gen consoles, as well as Nintendo Switch and PC. It is anticipated that NBA 2K24 will maintain the same platform availability, showcasing remarkable graphics on the next-gen consoles.

As expected, players using PS5 or Xbox Series X|S consoles are likely to enjoy a superior gaming experience compared to those still utilizing PS4 or Xbox One. Not only will the graphics be more advanced, but certain game modes may be exclusive to next-gen consoles.

Game Modes

There is no official information yet about new game modes in NBA 2K24. Therefore, it is expected that MyCAREER, MyTEAM, and MyLEAGUE will make a return. While these game modes are likely to be available on all platforms, some content may be restricted to PS5 and Xbox Series X|S owners. The City, an exclusive mode for next-gen consoles, is expected to continue in the same fashion.

Predictions for NBA 2K24 Reveal

The unveiling of NBA 2K24 will likely take place in late June or July 2023, following a similar timeline to last year's reveal. However, 2K has not yet announced the specific date for the NBA 2K24 reveal, so this is purely speculative.

The reveal is expected to commence with the announcement of the cover star, followed by gameplay previews over the subsequent weeks. NBA2king is likely to delve into the various modifications introduced in MyCareer, MyTeam, and more. When NBA 2K24 is released, it will also provide high-quality NBA 2K24 MT services.
