It’s not difficult to find that the Olympics will be part of the new NBA 2K game, there are two point we need to attention:
Indiana Pacers star Paul George appears on the cover of the soon-to-be-released game (September 20 or September 16 for those who pre-order) in his Team USA uniform.
On Friday, we learned the Australian National Team will be included in the new game, per Fox Sports Australia’s Melanie Dinjaskie. All this is taking place during an Olympic year.
Basketball is booming in Australia, but it’s unlikely NBA 2K would include the national team as a one-off squad. Patty Mills and others have been confirmed for the Boomers’ roster.
Here’s a look at the entire squad that will appear in NBA 2K17:
The Aussie’s inclusion has to be a part of a larger selection of teams. Four years ago amidst the hype for the London 2012 Olympic Games, 2K Sports had the original Dream Team included in NBA 2K13.
If and when this mode/feature is confirmed, it will join the already announced fleshed-out versions of MyGM and MyLeague as part of what could be another jam-packed feature set for NBA 2K17.
Stay tuned for more NBA 2K17 updates.
