2K has announced that basketball icon Kobe Bryant is gracing the cover of NBA 2K24, and will feature on the Kobe Bryant and Black Mamba Editions of the upcoming title.
Bryant has appeared on the cover of previous NBA titles including NBA 2K10, NBA 2K17: Legend Edition and both NBA 2K21 Mamba Forever Editions.
Visual Concepts President, Greg Thomas, commented:
As we celebrate 25 years of NBA 2K with Kobe Bryant, we commemorate his legacy and the generational impact he has had on the game of basketball.
Bryant played for the Los Angeles Lakers in the NBA for 20 years, and is regarded as one of the greatest basketball players of all time. He won five NBA championships, was an 18-time All-Star and was the first guard in NBA history to play 20 seasons. In January 2020, he was tragically killed alongside his daughter Gianna and seven other people in a helicopter crash in Calabasas, California.
NBA 2K24 has yet to attract a release date and is presumably coming to both current and last-generation consoles.
