NBA 2K23’s cover athlete is none other than Michael Jordan
The 23rd instalment of the renowned NBA 2K series is set to be released this autumn, and the cover athlete just so happens to be arguably the most recognisable No. 23 in NBA history.
2K Sports revealed today that Michael Jordan would grace the cover of NBA 2K23, with additional cover athletes to be published later this week, per Bleacher Report. In the meanwhile, Jordan will be featured on the covers of both the NBA 2K23 Michael Jordan Edition and the NBA 2K23 Championship Edition.
Jordan will have been featured on the cover of NBA 2K11, NBA 2K12, and NBA 2K16, making this the fourth time he has done so.
“After making 23 the most recognizable number in sports, it was only fitting that for NBA 2K23 we introduce the Michael Jordan Edition,” said Alfie Brody, Vice President of Global Marketing Strategy for NBA 2K. “Additionally, we’re thrilled to introduce a brand new premium edition of the game with the NBA 2K23 Championship Edition, as no other player embodies the word ‘champion’ like Jordan.”
