SEPTEMBER 10, 2021 (DALLAS, TX) – With its worldwide release today, the NBA 2K22 cover honors the international and cultural impact the NBA has had on the world by featuring Slovenian native and Dallas Mavericks point guard, Luka Dončić, as the franchise’s feature athlete appearing on the cover of the Standard Edition and Cross-Gen Digital Bundle.
To commemorate this iconic release, the Dallas Mavericks will give away posters at pre-season games, local recreation center partners, YMCA and Boys and Girls Clubs, as well as 77 free game codes to play on the Mavs Gaming Twitch channel. The Mavericks have also sanctioned a prodigious Luka 2K22 mural outside the Mavs Gaming Hub.
“Making the global cover of NBA 2K22 is special for me,” said Dončić. “I’m proud to represent my country in a special cover that honors the colors of the Slovenian flag. Basketball has given me so much, and I’m excited to give back and work together with 2K Foundations this year to help the lives of young kids around the globe.”
The NBA 75th Anniversary Edition celebrates the league’s most impactful big men who revolutionized the league, including former Dallas Mavericks superstar, Dirk Nowitzki, who embodies not only the global expansion of basketball but also the evolution of the game itself as the prototypical sharpshooting big man.
All editions of NBA 2K22 have been released worldwide today. Featuring best-in-class visual presentation and player AI, historic teams, and a wide variety of hoops experiences, NBA 2K22 puts the entire basketball universe in the player’s hands.
