Over the years, the “NBA 2K” franchise has had a consistent annual release date window within the fall season. So despite the lack of any official word from the game publisher and developers regarding “NBA 2K20,” many fans are confident the game will be out within the next few months. In that case, fans should expect the announcement to happen anytime soon.

There have been varying announcement schedules for the earlier “NBA 2K” games, so it is quite difficult to place when “NBA 2K20” will be announced this year. But it would not hurt taking last year’s time frame as an example.

The release date of “NBA 2K19” was confirmed in early June 2018 along with LeBron James being featured on the cover of the game’s 20th Anniversary Edition. But the main game cover athlete, Milwaukee Bucks’ Giannis Antetokounmpo, was only revealed a month later in a separate event. This offers the possibility that a piece of major news is coming next month if 2K Games is not making any major calendar changes for “NBA 2K20.”

While nothing was officially announced this month, a leak surfaced potentially revealing the release date of “NBA 2K20” and the athlete on the cover of the game’s Legend Edition. The source suggests that this year’s video game installment will go live on Sept. 6 and newly retired player Dwyane Wade from the Miami Heat graces the cover of the special version of the game. But, without 2K’s confirmation, it is still best to take these reports with a grain of salt.

Meanwhile, announcing “NBA 2K20” in July will also help in boosting pre-order sales since early access perks are some of the enticing offers to convince people to buy more expensive bundles of the game. As for the main game cover, there are so many possibilities. 2K could award this privilege to Kawhi Leonard given Toronto Raptors’ historic championship win. Anthony Davis donning a Los Angeles Lakers jersey on the cover could also be an appealing sight to many basketball and gaming fans.
