2K has announced that NBA World Champion and Hall of Famer Michael Jordan is the cover athlete of NBA 2K23 for the Michael Jordan Edition and Championship Edition of the game when it is launched on September 9, 2022.
Considered the greatest of all time by a majority of basketball fans and enthusiasts, Michael Jordan has transformed the NBA into a global phenomenon and is the perfect athlete to grace the cover of the 24th year of the game, and his 4th time to make the cover.
The game will feature the comeback of The Jordan Challenge, which will test players to recreate 15 iconic moments from Jordan’s illustrious career. First introduced back in NBA 2K11, the 10 challenges have been rebuilt and will be making a return alongside 5 new moments that will provide players a new way to experience Jordan’s accomplishments.
“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. This limited-edition version will also offer players the opportunity to catch on-court action throughout the season with a 12-month subscription to NBA League Pass included.”
