This week marks the arrival of the NBA 2K23 Season 9 release date, and fans are starting to inquire when it will officially launch. With the news and new NBA content reveals starting to pick up for NBA 2K24, fans have started to shift their attention away from the previous NBA 2K23 edition as they gear themselves up for whats to come in roughly a months time.

But with the arrival of Season 9 and still plenty of time to spare before the NBA 2K24 release date, several committed fans are still playing various game modes in NBA 2K23, from MyCAREER, to MyTEAM, to The W Online and more. With that in mind, some players in the community are wondering when Season 9 will be available, what time it will commence, and what its rewards will consist of. And in this guide, we cover all you need to know about all three of those key questions.

NBA 2K23

When is the NBA 2K23 Season 9 release date?

NBA 2K23 Season 9 went live on Friday, August 11. Prior to Season 9’s launch, fans on next-generation platforms had a Season 8 Countdown that was located on the top lefthand corner. For current-generation users, the Season 8 Countdown was located on the top righthand side. With Season 9 now live, there are no longer any countdowns available on either platform, as this marks the final season in NBA 2K23.


When is the NBA 2K23 Season 9 start time?

The official start time for NBA 2K23 Season 9 is at 8AM PST / 11AM EST / 4PM GMT / 5PM CEST on Friday, August 11. Following the release of NBA 2K23 last Fall, 2K Sports has been consistent and punctual with when they choose to launch their new seasons. Considering that the NBA 2K23 and NBA 2K23 MyTEAM Twitter pages have simultaneously posted ‘LIVE’ announcements for previous seasons around 8AM PST, it’s not surprising that NBA 2K23 did so one more time for Season 9.
