Once again, it’s around that time of year when the big sporting titles start to emerge for the new season. The likes of FIFA 23, Madden 23, and NBA 2K23 could all release roughly within weeks of each other. NBA 2K22 had a mixed bag of reviews tight from the start, with some in the community saying there was a lack of diversity and a seemingly large amount of in-game exploits. Fans will hope that the developers offer more in this latest edition than the usual roster changes, updated graphics, and new animations.
Nothing has been officially announced for NBA 2K23 but it is one of those games that we have become accustomed to seeing year-in-year-out. So when might we see NBA 2K23 release? We make our predictions and plan on continually updating this page as any NBA 2K23 news goes live.
NBA 2K23 release date prediction
The last five NBA titles ( NBA 2K18, 2K19, 2K20, 2K21, & 2K22) were all released in the first half of September. Based on this alone, we predict that the NBA 2K23 release date will be in September 2022.
- NBA 2K18 release date: 15 September 2017
- NBA 2K19 release date: 7 September 2018
- NBA 2K20 release date: 5 September 2019
- NBA 2K21 release date: 4 September 2020
- NBA 2K22 release date: 10 September 2021
NBA 2K23 pre order date prediction & possible pre order bonuses

What NBA 2K23 pre order editions might we see & price prediction
Last year we saw the Standard Edition, cross-gen bundle, and 75th Anniversary Edition. There won’t be an Anniversary edition this time around, however, you can bet there will be a premium/ ultimate edition, offering more rewards than the Standard Edition. We predict the price of NBA 2K23 will be very similar to last year.
