The latest game of the NBA 2K series is upon us, with a current release date as September. Now, a new speculation (rooted from the game’s cover) suggests that the upcoming game could feature the United States Olympic Team. In fact, this could mean a possibility of international competition being part of it all. Meanwhile, here are some of the pre-made league teams it will introduce.
“NBA 2K17” was first announced in May, with Paul George of the Indiana Pacers being the face of the cover. While it could simply mean nothing, for hardcore fans — in way or another — it actually does.
As seen on the “NBA 2K17” cover, George is also wearing his Team USA uniform (the one on the left). According to SegmentNext, this might refer to the possibility of the country’s Olympic Team being part of the forthcoming title. After all, this has happened for the first time in the history of all “NBA 2K” games.
There is every reason why 2K Games would resort to such “NBA 2K17” cover. The Olympics is fast approaching, so they probably would want to hype things up. Nonetheless, having the USA Team in the franchise is not entirely new. In “NBA 2K13,” players can take control of the 2012, but only when in the Exhibition mode.
If “NBA 2K17” would indeed feature the Olympic Team, then there is a possibility that players could once again take control — be it in the Exhibition mode or not. But of course, they would love to taking things a little bit further.
