With many itching for news about the NBA 2K23 Cover, it appears one major piece of the puzzle has been revealed.
Here's everything we know so far about a new leak featuring the special edition NBA 2K23 cover and a legendary athlete.
NBA 2K23 Cover Athlete leaked, Michael Jordan Edition revealed
In a surprising move ahead of any official reveals, it appears the NBA 2K23 cover has leaked for this year's special deluxe edition.
As past years have featured legends, the same is true this time as the NBA 2K23 Michael Jordan Edition has reportedly been revealed.
The reveal comes courtesy of TechnikNews, and the validity of it is reinforced by the fact that the same outlet leaked the NBA 2K22 cover just ahead of last year's reveal, though this leak can't be confirmed until 2K makes their own announcements.
You can see the reported NBA 2K23 Michael Jordan Edition covers below:
The designs themselves are not far off from the painted style used for last year's NBA 2K22 covers, and having the box art for each platforms likely means TechnikNews got this from a retail source.
2K started teasing reveals for "cover stars" and more just last week, and this leak could mean the full reveal is just a day or two away.
NBA 2K23 pre order details could confirm Devin Booker
This NBA 2K23 cover news comes just a few short days after a separate report revealed Devin Booker could be the main NBA 2K23 Cover Athlete.
The new report from TechnikNews also reveals the following pre order bonuses (with potential errors due to language translation):
"5,000 virtual currency, 5,000 MyTEAM points, 10 MyTEAM Promo packs (a pro Week), a boost for each MyCAREER skill type, a boost for each Gatorade boost type, a Devin Booker MyPLAYER jersey and a Devin Booker MyTEAM Free Agent Card with 95 points."
While these details are also unconfirmed until 2K makes their official reveals, the mention of Devin Booker themed items likely means he will indeed be the primary NBA 2K23 Cover Athlete.
With the first games of the 2022 NBA 2K23 Summer League scheduled to take place this week, it makes sense for 2K to line up their official reveals around the same time.
