NBA 2k17: Release Date, Changes, Preview

NBA 2K17 is an upcoming basketball simulation video game developed by Visual Concepts and published by 2K Sports. It is the 18th installment in the NBA 2K franchise and the successor to NBA 2K16. It is scheduled to be released in September 2016 for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, and Xbox 360.Paul George is the cover athlete for the regular edition of the game, while Kobe Bryant is the cover athlete for the ‘Legend Edition’.In Italy, the cover athlete is Danilo Gallinari, and in Spain, the cover athlete is Pau Gasol.

NBA 2k17 should be fun to play as stated by 2k Sports that this game will be one of the most realistic basketball games ever.

Release Date

The release date of 2k17 is confirmed, the game is coming out on 20th of September.


One of the biggest changes in the game will be the European Basketball. For some areas around Europe the cover of the game will be with Pau Gasol and Danilo Gallinari. The Euroleague will be with the actual and active rosters of the present teams.

Lightening rework

Lightening on some courts will be reworked so the look and feel of the game will be a lot better and it should feel more exciting.


The fatigue measurement has been changed. In the previous series you could’ve played a whole game without having a fatigue issues, while in this game, the responsibility will be number one. Your players will start missing shots, they will move and react a lot slower and they can get an injury really easy if you hold them for too long on the field (of course, if they are fatigued).

Improved graphics

The graphics are improved as we saw at the presentation at Gamescom 2016 where 1 quarter of the game was played. The faces were looking more realistic than ever before.

Minimum Requirements

The official game requirements have not been released, but we think that medium requirements for enjoyable experience will be if you get gtx 960 or 970, i5 cpu or better, and at least 6 gigs of ram.
