NBA 2K15 release date set for October 7

Kevin Durant stars as cover athlete

The NBA 2K15 release date is October 7 in North America and October 10 internationally, publisher 2K Games announced Tuesday.

The latest basketball simulation from 2K Sports will star Oklahoma City Thunder forward and 2014 NBA MVP Kevin Durant as its cover athlete. Its tagline is 'Your Time Has Come'.


Durant was previously featured on the cover of NBA 2K13 along with the Los Angeles Clippers' Blake Griffin and the Chicago Bulls' Derrick Rose.

"I'm honored to be selected for the cover of NBA 2K," Durant said in a statement." I've been an avid fan and player of NBA 2K since I was a kid, and being selected as the sole cover athlete of NBA 2K15 is an amazing accomplishment at this point of my life. I feel like my time has come."

NBA 2K14 was the fastest-selling release in the history of the series, having shipped more than five million units as of February, according to Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick.

NPD reported that it was the best-selling sports game on PS4 and Xbox One during the consoles' launch month of November 2013.

NBA 2K15 is planned for release on PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One.
