We now have an expected NBA 2K25 release date

We’ve now been able to enjoy NBA 2K24 for six months, which is not time at all really. However, in the world of sports games, it already means we’re looking forward to next season’s game.

Like FIFA, Madden NFL, and all other virtual sports games, each NBA 2K has a shelf life edition. While we don’t yet have an official announcement of the 2K25 release date, several sources have cited an expected launch in September 2024.

Key Takeaways:

  • There has not yet been a confirmed 2K25 released date from Take-Two Interactive
  • The official announcement will be in June or July
  • The game has been confirmed as being in the testing phase via Twitter (X)
  • The expected NBA 2K25 release date is September 2024
  • Reports suggest a July or August pre-order state
  • No confirmation of cover athletes yet
  • You can have input on the soundtrack
  • NBA2K24 is one Xbox Game Pass now

When does NBA 2K25 come out?

The short answer is that we don’t have an official or exact release date, but based on what the community is saying, as well as past trends, we have a pretty good idea. In general, the NBA2K series follows this familiar timeline:

NBA2K25 release date

The unofficial and expected release day announcements seem to coincide with past trends. Based on information from the NBA2K community on Twitter (X) and the 2KRatings.com website, here are the dates we have:

  • Release date: September 2024
  • Pre-order: From July or August 2024

Who will be the cover athletes?

While we have some pretty solid information on the expected NBA 2K25 release date, we have less to go on regarding the possible cover athletes.

Here past trends tell us that they like to shake things up. Last year, two versions of the game used the late legend Kobe Bryant, while the WNBA version used current Oregon Ducks star Ionescu.

Over the 25 years of the 2K series, has shape-shifted between contemporary players and all-time greats. What athletes we see also depends on what editions are released.

We got two editions with a legend cover last year, so perhaps we’re due a modern-day NBA player this year? Surely two-time MVP Nikola Jokic is finally due a cover, and for the WNBA edition, we would love to see Breanna Stewart.

NBA 2K25 release - What editions can we expect?

If there’s one thing we know, it’s that the NBA2K series loves a special edition. With last year being the 25th Anniversary, we got four editions, so we can probably expect one less this year given that it isn’t a special occasion.

We will definitely see a standard edition plus a WNBA version, and more than likely some form of legend cover - like the Kobe Bryant and Black Mamba editions last year.

How you can have your say on the NBA 2K25 soundtrack

One thing we know for sure is that the NBA2K25 soundtrack hasn’t been finalized yet. On March 9, 2024, the official NBA2K X (Twitter) account (@NBA2K) asked which up-and-coming artist should be included on the soundtrack.

If you get in quickly, you can still drop in some suggestions!

NBA2k24 is on Xbox Game Pass now

NBA 2K25 release date - Conclusion

Basically, we’re at the halfway point between the last and the next NBA 2K edition. As we said, we will probably have all of the exact dates and details in June or July, but until then, there are four editions of NBA2K24 to keep you more than entertained.
