There are some rumors, however, hinted that there would be delays due to an unbalanced team lineup after Kevin Durant joined the Golden State Warriors. In a news entry from Chat Sports Net, unconfirmed speculations about the delay on the release date for "NBA 2k17" are looming online and among fans. No confirmation nor denial were made by official 2k developers though.
Still, with pre-orders set in place, chances of delays happening is almost next to none, adding the fact that no visible changes are evident with NBA2k's pinned tweet for it's official Twitter account.
"NBA 2k17" will be released this coming Sep. 20 and four days earlier for those who have pre-ordered it. Pre-orders are now available for fans to secure the standard Early Tip-Off, Kobe Bryant Legend Edition, and Kobe Bryant Legend Edition-Gold for Xbox One and PlayStation 4, with prices at $59.99, $79.99, and $99.99 respectively.
There are a lot of NBA goodies to be included for pre-orders, including 5,000 to 100,000 virtual currency, hoodies, jersies, posters, black mamba controllers, and Panini Kobe trading cards.
The game's official site 2k.com is now accepting pre-orders for previous and current generation consoles, with Early Tip-Off, Kobe Bryant Legend, and Legend-Gold editions, as well as the PC version. Pre-orders are also now available from sites like Amazon, Gamestop, Best Buy, and Target.
Earlier this year, a lot of expectations had already been set for NBA 2k's latest game. This includes better Face-Scanning, which proved to be worse than 2k15. Watch or Scout modes also belong to fans' features wishlist.
According to Bleach Report, an improved MyCareer mode could also be a nice addition to the game. Having a fixed story leaves players with limited control.
With just a few weeks before the official release, fans will find out if all these are taken into consideration. Stay tuned for updates U4NBA.com here.
