With E3 2021 almost here, we have our first bit of NBA 2K22 news as the game’s cover athlete has apparently been leaked.
According to a post on Reddit, Dallas Maverick’s legend Dirk Nowitzki will grace the cover of NBA 2K22. Once the rumor began making the rounds, Bloomberg reporter Jason Schreier took to Twitter to confirm the legitimacy of the reports.
There’s no confirmation if Nowitzki will be on the base game cover or a special “Legend Edition”. Based on past releases, it’s more than likely the latter. Modern stars are likely to appear on other versions of the game in the same manner as Dame Lillard and Zion Williamson did for NBA 2K21.
What Else is Coming to NBA 2K22?
In addition to the cover announcements, fans should expect to see a first-look trailer at this year’s E3. There’s also a possibility that we get at least a small tease for any of the new features coming to the game. A new MyPlayer story is almost a given as well as updates to The City, MyTeam, MyLeague, and The W.
NBA 2K22 is scheduled to launch this fall, likely in September, for the PlayStation 5 (PS5), Xbox Series X|S, PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
