GamesRadar+NBA 2K22 release date and special editions revealed

All editions of NBA 2K22 are currently scheduled for worldwide release on September 10, 2021 and are available for pre-order starting today, July 14, 2021.

“Making the global cover of NBA 2K22 is special for me,” said Dončić. “I’m proud to represent my country in a special cover that honors the colors of the Slovenian flag. Basketball has given me so much, and I’m excited to give back and work together with 2K Foundations this year to help the lives of young kids around the globe.”

After the announcement, Nowitzki leaned on his endearing humor and tweeted “not sure who these other guys are, but a huge honor to be on (the) cover of #NBA2K22. Thank you.”

The NBA 75th Anniversary Edition and Cross-Gen Digital Bundle feature cover artwork painted by Atlanta-based artist, Charly Palmer, work in fine art is defined by complex compositions and a unique technique and style.

2K will also be releasing additional announcements about NBA 2K22 in the coming weeks, including first looks at features, the soundtrack reveal, live service updates, and much more. With ever-expanding content and one of the most passionate hoops communities, basketball never stops in NBA 2K.

Slovenia will be placed in Group C for the Tokyo Games, one of the three four-team groups at the Olympics. Slovenia will play Argentina on July 26, Japan on July 29 and reigning World Cup champion Spain on Aug. 1.

The top two teams in each group, plus two wild cards, will make the Olympic quarterfinals.

In the qualifying games, Dončić posted 31 points, 11 rebounds and 13 assists for the first triple-double by any player in any of the four Olympic qualifying tournaments that were played in the past week to determine the last four teams in the Olympic field.

“We’re making history for our country,” Dončić said. “We can just go up from here.”

Appearing on the NBA 2K22 cover will already be a special moment, but if Dončić can lead Slovenia to a medal, the video game will certainly become a hot commodity for all those who can get their hands on one.

Mavs Moneyball 14 July, 2021 - 08:17pm

Doncic will grace the standard and cross-gen bundle versions, Nowitzki will be part of the special NBA 75th anniversary edition.

This will be the first time a Dallas Mavericks player has been featured on not only an NBA 2K cover, but any basketball video game cover. Nowitzki was on the covers of NBA Live 07 and 08, but only for German copies. Same goes for the German version of NBA 2 Night 2002.

This is a digital only package, so unfortunately this artwork will not be available on a physical box.

In addition, there is a GameStop exclusive version of the game that features Candice Parker from the WNBA.

All versions are available to pre-order now. NBA 2k22 releases September 10.
