NBA 2K23 release date has been confirmed and pre orders go live on Thursday, July 7th, 2022 – that is just hours away.
So far we have been shown two NBA 2K23 Editions – the NBA 2K23 Michael Jordan Edition & NBA 2K23 Championship Edition.
We expect to see a Standard Edition for NBA 2K23 announced tomorrow.
NBA 2K23 pre order bonus & editions
For those unaware, everyone who pre orders one of the NBA 2K23 special Editions (Michael Jordan / Championship) is likely to receive bonuses.
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.
The pre order bonuses look set to be fairly similar this time around, only with a greater focus on Michael Jordan.
