NBA 2K23 WNBA Edition Cover Athletes Revealed
Following the announcements of Michael Jordan being awarded his own edition and the NBA 2K23 Edition Championship, we now have information on the various cover stars.
NBA 2K22 was the first game in the history of the series to feature a woman on the cover, as Candace Parker broke that barrier in the 25th Anniversary Edition of the WNBA.
Things are ramping up this year with two legendary personalities being chosen as Sue Bird and Diana Taurasi, both featured on the cover of NBA 2K23 WNBA Edition.
The Birds and Taurasi will likely be joined as NBA 2K23 Cover Athletes by Devin Booker, who is still reported to be a Standard Edition pick this year, though that hasn’t been officially announced yet.
The trailer below was also revealed, focusing on the long history and legacy of the two NBA 2K23 WNBA Edition cover athletes.
In addition, NBA 2K announced via press release that they have partnered with Bird and Taurasi to donate $100,000 to Every Child Sports.
The organization aims to increase access to youth basketball programs across the country, and the donation will cover registration fees for more than 550 girls from low-income families.
“By partnering with NBA 2K and Every Kid Sports, Diana and I have the opportunity to open doors for hundreds of young women across this country who want to express themselves on the court,” said Sue Bird. “I’m honored to be on the cover and honored to use my legacy to create these opportunities for the next generation.”
NBA 2K23 WNBA Edition platforms, prices and pre-order rewards
Final details on NBA 2K23 WNBA Edition are still about 24 hours away, as pre-orders for the title have yet to go live.
NBA 2K has confirmed in recent days that players will be able to deploy their NBA 2K23 as soon as July 7, 2022, possibly by 10:00 a.m. ET.
We expect the final cover athlete to be revealed and confirmation of pricing, platforms and custom rewards will all arrive at that time.
However, we have confirmed that the WNBA edition will once again be exclusive to GameStop in the US and Canada and unfortunately not available through any other retailer.
On the bonus front, we learned today that NBA 2K23 WNBA Edition will include Sue Bird and Diana Taurasi’s WNBA jerseys as in-game bonus content, but didn’t know much more about that.
The August content schedule has been revealed
If you’ve been eagerly waiting for more NBA 2K23 WNBA Edition news, you’ll probably get some news soon, especially in August.
The content schedule for August has been revealed, and the first look we’ll see is the gameplay demo, something we’ve all been waiting for.
With all this new content on the way, we expect even more from NBA 2K23 WNBA Edition, perhaps even the WNBA MyTEAM mode.
We’ll be sure to update you here once more is revealed.
