2K Games has revealed the name of the NBA 2K17 cover athlete: he is Indiana Pacers All-Star shooting guard Paul George. The game is coming this September for PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC.
“I have been playing NBA 2K as long as I can remember, and to be honoured as cover athlete of NBA 2K17 is a blessing and vote of confidence that my hard work on and off the court has paid off,” said Paul George. “I’m excited to partner with 2K and hope to help take the franchise to the next level”.
George will serve as the cover athlete for NBA 2K Online in China, while the Legend Edition for NBA 2K17, as announced a few months ago, will feature Kobe Bryant as cover star.
2K also revealed the Early Tip-Off date for NBA 2K17, which will allow players pre-ordering the game able to give it a try already on September 16.
