NBA 2K22: Release date and first gameplay footage
Normally NBA 2k released its games in the month of October. Over the last few years, 2k has set its eyes on a September release. Keeping in mind the last few release dates, NBA 2K22 will either tip-off on the 3rd of September or the 10th of September this year.
June is a month where all sporting games release their first looks. From FIFA to Madden, they have their first footage released in June. However, NBA 2K22 is expected to give us a small treat in early July. The gameplay along with the trailer might eye a July drop, giving fans the opportunity to pay attention only to basketball and not other sports video games. A lot of fans have already begun making their own fan-based trailers and hype around the game is certainly building as each day goes by.
