When is the release date for NBA 2K23 Season 8? Following the 2023 NBA Draft, which took place on June 22, the NBA is now officially entering the heart of its offseason as teams gradually prepare for another campaign set to commence later this Fall. But as many fans know, the NBA isn’t really inactive during the offseason. Not only has free agency begun to kick into gear with a handful of teams already participating in some big trades and signings, but to add to it, the 2023 NBA Summer League Tournament will also begin next Monday, July 3.

As you can imagine, NBA 2K23 is certainly not reining it in with their new content releases either despite the 2022-23 NBA season being over. In fact, Season 8 is launching later this week. And if the Season 7 rewards list and content drops are anything to go by, fans could be in store for a real treat come the new season. As you can imagine, many are starting to wonder when Season 8 will be live in NBA 2K23. If you happen to be one of those players curious about Season 8’s release date and expected start time, we cover all you need to know in this guide here as we await another epic adventure in NBA 2K23.

NBA 2K23 Season 8 release date

NBA 2K23

NBA 2K23 Season 8 will be launching this Friday, June 30. Fans can see this firsthand upon loading into NBA 2K23, where the Season 7 countdown is located on the top righthand corner currently highlighting that three days remain.

In other words, the three days shown on the NBA 2K23 Season 7 countdown connotes to tomorrow, Wednesday, and Thursday. Once the countdown drops below the 24-hour mark, it will then shift to an hourly countdown until Season 8 kicks off on Friday.

With that in mind, some of you might be wondering what time Season 8 will actually launch on Friday. Though there’s been no confirmation about the start time just yet, we have a strong idea of when Season 8 will go live, which we cover in the next section.

NBA 2K23 Season 8 expected start time

NBA 2K23 has yet to release an official start time for Season 8. That being said, based on the release times from previous seasons, we here at VideoGamer have an expert prediction for when we expect the start time to take place for Season 8 this Friday: 8AM PST / 11AM EST / 4PM GMT / 5PM CEST.

Since NBA 2K23 launched last year, 2K Sports has been pretty consistent and punctual with when they choose to release their new seasons. And based on the fact that both the NBA 2K23 and NBA 2K23 MyTEAM Twitter pages tend to simultaneously post ‘LIVE’ announcements for new seasons at 8AM PST, it would come to no surprise if NBA 2K23 once again did the same for Season 8.
