What is the NBA 2K23 Release Date?

NBA 2K23 is releasing this Friday, September 9 2022 and there is still time to pre-order! We’ll cover the pre order editions, their prices and more details!

It’s to be noted however, that no editions have early access unfortunately! Every edition will be available worldwide on the Friday.

Last year we saw early backers who bought the premium NBA 2K22 75th anniversary edition receive a long list of additional in-game currency cosmetics and cards.

Well, the pre-order bonuses look set to be fairly similar this time around, only with a greater focus on Michael Jordan.
