It’s time for a new sports game cycle, with NBA 2K24’s cover star revealed. As is perhaps appropriate following his premature passing three years ago, LA Lakers superstar Kobe Bryant will grace the cover of the standard Kobe Bryant Edition and the special Black Mamba Edition.
2K Sports is expected to fully pull back the curtain on this year’s game later in the week, but for now it’s focusing on the cover reveal. Bryant is obviously one of the NBA’s most decorated players, having won five World Championship rings and two Olympic gold medals. Last year’s game featured a series of playable Michael Jordan moments, and we’d expect a similar mode based on Kobe in this year’s game.
