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 at the time of the cover reveal.

"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 2K15 is planned for release on PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One on October 7 in North America and October 10 internationally.

The game will include a musical score curated by musician Pharrell Williams, known for his production work with artists from Kendrick Lamar to Daft Punk, and for singles such as "Happy".
